View Full Version : [mythbuntu] s video input on dell inspiron 8200

I just installed mythbuntu 8.04 and was trying to find a way to get the s video to work on the laptop. Here's my problem. I connected my svideo cable from the laptop to the cable box and cannot get the live stream from the cable. I am trying to figure out how to get live tv streaming from the svideo. I am a complete newb to this sort of stuff so please keep it simple!

Thanks in advanced!

I'm not familiar with the Dell machines. On the laptops I've seen, the s-video connection is normally used to send output to a TV, not the other way round.

p.s. I had a look at the dell.co.nz website and it recommended another model, the specs there weren't too helpful in answering your question.

It's not a really big deal. I got this laptop for free and was just checking to see if it could actually work.
