Recently I got an 12ft. S-Video cable from worstbuy so I could plug my computer into the big Flatscreen HD TV we have.
When I got home I realized it wasn't S-Video it was Vivo which looks a lot like Svid. Now I asked the moron at best buy if there were any ways to connect a computer to a tv besides s-video and hdmi and he said no.
My video card (Ati Sapphire x1950xt) which came with the vivo cables but they are fucking 6 inches long and completely worthless. It also came with another pack of wires which are yellow and black molexes and have female s-video
(The vivo is the Red green blue).
Also my card has 2x DVI outputs with adapters for VGA (which I use for my CRT monitor).
So I was wondering what type of ways are there to connect a comp to a tv. Svid, dvi?, vivo, hdmi, etc? What way is the best way as far as quality of picture and delay to screen?
Which is another thing, It seemed like the picture was delayed a bit (we were playing SF3:3s) I dunno if this was because I used my old computer (which is the only one with a s-video port on the geforce 5500 fx card). And the picture on the desktop was really blurry and hard to read text.
Is there some kind of chart comparison between the methods? Is there a way I can get an adapter to plug a s-video into the vivo port?
Also where is the best/cheapest place to get a hold of such items? Newegg?
