Is it possible? If so, How can I set it up?

I am pretty sure that you need an adapter. One that converts S-Video to composite.

EDIT: Such as this one:

Would I be able to have video in this way? And what is that adapter called? Where can I buy one?

No it would give your card better voltage for better overclocking! :bleh:

(just kidding) :)


But yeah you should have video as long as you hook it up to a tv with a composite input. And I guess you would call it an S-Video to Composite adapter.

EDIT: Ahh here ya go. THIS (http://www.compgeeks.com/details.asp?invtid=4PINS-VIDEO&cat=CBL) should also work. And cheap to boot! :)

I wouldn't think so because the hardware/TV chip itself has to support video-in functionality.

And you could probably buy this adapter at Best Buy or Radio Shack. Good luck. :)
