I bought a s-video female to rca female adapter on ebay for 6 dollars, and it works well, except i cant see much on the screen -- text is too small -- other things are too big. I put to on 800x600 and its ok, i still cant read some text in video games. I got this because i wanted to play games such as Call of Duty on my computer monitor, while people could watch me playing on the tv. When i use this s-video feature i have to unplug my VGA monitor plug and than the s-video engages. How could i make both outputs on at the same time???
Okay im trying to picture this... The female rca adapter for your comp and a male adapter for the vga moinitor? A rca splitter should do the trick. I cant tell from what you told me cause I cant picture how this is set but either way one of the two should work: a 2male/1female splitter or a 1male/2female splitter. Both are about 2$ you should be able to tell which you would need.
