08'aIgnorance is not an excuse
28th November 2003
My parents just got a new über Dell (512mb Nvidia 7900GTX, 2gb RAM, 2x250gb HD etc etc you get the point) and it also comes with Windows XP Media Center Edition so I'm going to buy a TV-IN card and a Microsoft MCE remote and hook it up with the TV so I can record TV programs and all the other neat stuff you can do with the media center (the 500gb HD is there for a reason :p).
Now I'm not completely lost when it comes to this. I'm pretty sure how to do it but I'll ask you guys so I know that I wont buy the wrong stuff ;). The TV isn't the newest so you can only connect to it with SCART. I'd like to know if I can drag the cables like this:
Connecting the TV antenna to the TV-IN card is no problem. My question regards how I should drag (is it the right word?) the cables from the TV-OUT on the graphics card to the TV. Is it possible to do like this:
I will have to use a SCART adaptor:
For video: A s-video cable from the TV-OUT slot to the scart adapter:
For audio: A 3.5mm to 2xRCA cable from the soundcard to the scart adaptor:
Will this work?
