Hey there, I just recently dumped my cable service and am wanting to hook up my computer to my CRT TV in the living room so I can watch videos and movies I've downloaded to the comp. THis is the tv I have:
http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-27AF45-Flat-Screen-Silver/dp/B0007WCA4K
And this is the video card I have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150229

Can someone walk me through how I can get Ubuntu to talk to my TV so I can transmit the signal to it? Thanks for the help!!

looks like your video card comes with an HDMI to DVI converter but I didn't see where the television had an HDMI input. if it doesn't then I guess you'll just use the S-video to connect them.

switch the TV input to the S-video and see what you can do.
