How to connect your laptop to an older TV with only RCA jacks

Most laptops only have S-Video output and no RCA outputs for TVs; however, some older or lower-end TV's only have RCA input.
Cables To Go - 27965 - 12ft Value Series Bi-directional S-Video To RCA Cable (Black) will convert your S-video plug to RCA, so you can watch videos on your bigger TV with only RCA inputs. It is only 13.73 USD or less at Amazon which is a lot cheaper then a new TV with S-video inputs. Plus, this cable is also 12 feet, so you do not have to worry about the cable being long enough to reach your Television set from your laptop.

To use the cable all you have to do is plug in the S-video end into your laptop or PC video card with S-video outputs, and plug the RCA yellow plug into the TV RCA video plug which is usually yellow as well.
