    Does anyone know if its possible to use the S-Video (and/or Composite Vid) output on a PowerBook to connect to a tv to use as a second monitor?

    -or another way-

    Is it possible to span to a tv using S-Video out?

    Thanks

    Yah, you just need to buy a mini-dvi to video adaptor.

    So does this also include the ability to extend the PB's desktop to a tv (ie: a dual monitor setup)?

    I think he was talking about the S-Video out port not using the DVI with adapter.

    Yep, i do this all the time to watch DIVx on my TV... you can either CLONE the display (where both screens are indentical) or have a Dual display.. but bear in mind that the TV will have a much smaller resolution and everything will look HUGE. :)

    You can buy a scart adapter which has a S-video input and sound input.
