View Full Version : TV Tuner cards

09-08-2002, 05:06 PM
Does anyone know if the S-Video out port on certain TV Tuner cards (like the Turbo TV or the Formac Pro) can be used to run a 2nd display from your Mac, such as to watch DVD movies on a TV? Or is the S-Video out on these cards only for watching regular TV as it were? My guess is that it can, but I wanted to make sure before opting to get a hold of one, instead of an XClaim TV video card for example.

The answer to my question as I found out is no, I can't use the S-Video port to run a 2nd display because it's S-Video in, not out. The input can be used to connect to a VCR to record TV, though.
