Four stars now (updated review),
This review is from: Belkin PC-DVD to TV Cable Kit, with S-Video Cable & Scart Adapter 10m (Accessory)The earlier reviews were encouraging but I expected to have trouble. Sure enough, I couldn't get any sort of picture or sound. For all I know, the cables may be worth 5 stars but what do you award if nothing happens?
For a start, the instructions (such as they are) are not in English and there's nothing about what you need at the computer end. My tv has a D-sub 15-pin connector but my PC has only one video socket.
A phone call to the supplier didn't solve the problem; he said the tv's PC connection only works with laptops anyway (not sure that's true). He said I should change the display properties in Control Panel to allow for tv as well as monitor but I could find only the option of an extra monitor and that doesn't work.
Now I've found a website that pointed me in the right direction. I needed a Y-splitter at the computer end to take the s-video lead. Then I did, indeed, need to go to the display properties and enable the TV connection (this varies according to video card). Having got the picture, I then found I could get sound by putting the pin into the headphone socket. Now I want to award four stars
