    well i think you're going to want to get up to that 512 mb point.

    As for the s-video question, you might be able to run a series of adapters that go from s-video to RCA video then to your 3.5mm jack. I would just google a bunch of adapters.

    example:

    That's the method I'm currently working with.

    S-Video Cable --> S-video to Composite adapter --> Composite to 3.5mm cable.

    The onboard graphics is an S3 Savage IX but the TV settings are greyed out as if it cant deted the screen.

    hmm, that usually means the computer didn't find a valid video signal to send it to. Can you try hooking it up to a normal TV just to make sure you cables aren't bad?

    Output to normal tv is fine.

    I was thinking that maybe it could be all the connection changes are reducing the signal to below detectable level for the chipset?

    I've tested it with a normal tv and all seems to be working fine.

    Do you think all the different cable connections could be lowering the signal level too much?

    hmmm i dont think so. Most likely it's a problem with the tv your using. Can you test it with a dvd player or something to make sure you're getting a signal to the tv?

    That I havent tried yet, I'll hook it up to something later when I get home from work and see what the outcome is.

    Cheers for the help Reegler, I'll let you know how it goes.
