ive just got a LEADTEK GF4Ti4400 128MB DDR with TV OUT but im not sure what the tv out actually does.does this mean i could connect my tv or my dvd player to this and watch it on my monitor? if so how would i do this.
Exactly the opposite you can connect the rear of your graphics card to your big-screen television in your home usually by the composite(yellow)jack plug or a better way is the s-vhs connection which i know your card will have to your tv depending on what your tv's connections are you will need a cable with the ideal connections at either end.
Even though todays monitors are better that tv's for resolution etc (crt not flat monitors)its still better to watch on a big 28-36"tv that a say 17-19"monitor as most will agree.
i have svideo out going from ge4ti4400 card to tv
running xppro in clone mode
2 monitors showing the same exact thing at the same time
great for playing cs and frens wanna watch or watchin movies or whatever
you probably need a svideo cable....i had to find one about 30feet long to reach my tv
