S-Video drama :(
"This page is dedicated to everybody who has trouble getting a color image on their TV from their laptop !"
[Xmas Day, 2:04 AM]: I wrote these notes back in the 2005 summer while i was preparing my last exam and i was wondering why i couldn't watch color on my Tv out of my laptop. A quick google search showed me the situation: 1) no real solutions 2) a black market of particular cables... that was not right, for me. Well, wanna be Eng don't have a girl but they do it all the time... yes finding solutions ;) the Magic of internet is still online !
The bottom is, i'm receiving a lot of users feedback about this page (goooood), so i decided to update and put more information here. I never thought, this page has got a meaning for it's existance so... somebody put a link on wikipedia too as a "solution" and... i didn't expect all this ! it was just a simple page with some notes and a few pics... :D
Users tired of searching into forums, buying expensive cable, 200 different connectors, doing exensive procedure debugging (first TV, then laptop, before the cable, then turn this on...), useless information, infinite drivers update and many more !!!
Yes, you bet ! there is the cure !
Read on, there IS THE solution to have color on your TV. Oh, i forgot, it's cheap, it's super easy and you CAN do it by Yourself !
Just two words before you start hacking your entire house... this worked for me, 50% of the TVs have this issue, i was not on the lucky side, i got B/W on my tv... Don't mess up, don't complain if your TV just exploded and you wasted your moquette... there's nothing of "dangerous", but if you connect the wrong wires, something could broke really (or burn your hands... but not too much). Oh, and i'm not responsable for any of your mistakes ! :)
Good, if you are still here... let's go with the hack !
14 feb 2006 - Without a girl&job, you end up working on your website :( Some minor fixes, added some text and finally some resources material
5 jan 2006 - Decided to repage this section: the original page was a single mess of text and pictures, and was growing and growing becoming too heavvy to read and load. Now it's divided in distinct section for easy of use.
4 jan 2006 - Added some more info related to Technical Explanation as user from all around the world are reading and posing questions i'm going to put everything on these pages.
25 dec 2005 - Due to increasing mail received i decided to work more on the layout and information of this page! as a stated before everything was born to cope with a "MY" problem, then it turns out the problem is more wide than i though so...
Question, info, suggetion, report ? did it worked, burns? fires? B/W again? totally black? ... maybe... COLORS !!!! mail me ! say something, to ask... or just because it is working :) let me know ! pleaseeeeee ;)
