To connect your PC to your TV, you'll need a TV. Sorry, no TV means no PC-TV :p
Now it's getting tricky, there are endless different models of TV's and all have different options and settings.1. The possible inputs. (in order of most likely apperance)a. Antenna/Cable
Well, if this wasn't on your TV, you could hardly call it a TV. but for us, it's useless if you want to connect your PC to your TV.
The most common form of connnecting TV's, Videorecorders and DVD drives with eachother. The gigantic proportions of the connector and the oddly shaped form of it make it easy to recognise.
Two fat SCART connections
As you can see SCART houses all video and audio posibilities. Composite, S-Video, RGB all imput and output, all in 1 cable. Offcourse your cable needs to be shielded well (thats why a full SCART cable with all 21 wires costs a fortune) Some SCART cables leave unneeded wires out, so check what you need before you buy.
This page is all about the SCART connection, if you want to know more...
almost equally common as SCART. one single yellow cinch supplies the video, and two (red and white) are for the audio channels. PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo fans will know this all to well :)
Composite are the three colored holes to the right
Another form of getting your video (and only the video) signal into your TV. Should give better quality of image, but I surely didn't notice that.
S-Video is the big connector to the left, marked S-V
2. NTSC, PAL or SECAM
Yet again, some big difference between TV models. NTSC is the American standard of viewing image on your TV.
a. NTSC (NTSC is the American/Japanese system for the Video signal.)
"National Television System Committee"
Horizontal Frequency: 15.734 kHz
Vertical Frequency: 60 Hz
b. PAL (European standard for the video signal)
"Phase Alternating Line"
PAL N,PAL M,PAL-System (only 2 country's with PAL N and PAL M, most are PAL-System)
Line/Field 625/50 (525/60 for PAL-M)
Horizontal Freq. 15.625 (15.750 kHz for PAL-M)
Vertical Freq. 50 Hz (60 for PAL-M)
"Sequential Couleur Avec Memoire or Sequential Color with Memory"
Horizontal Frequency 15.625 kHz
Vertical Frequency 50 Hz
There are some different versions of SECAM (B,G,H,D,K,K1,L) But they are only different in the video and audio bandwidth. Nothing to worry about.
