... most HDTVs have a vga port on them somewhere (generally they are labeled as "PC" ports), I would try that first. Otherwise you are better off trying to get the S-Video to work as you cannot go from analog (VGA, s-video, rca) to digital (HDMI, DP, DVI) without major lag issues.

Did you enable the external monitor (in this case the TV) within Windows? Desktop->Rt click->Properties/Screen Resolution->enable monitor #2
