I am looking for an adapter cable to connect S Video out of laptop to
Composite video in of TV.
I have figured out (by inserting wires in video out and connecting manually to
TV's RCA jack etc) that there is no composite signal readily available in the
S-Video out of the laptop. The luminance and chroma are available separately.
If I just short these two I get the correct picture on TV.
From web search I figure out that a simple capacitor coupling is required
between these two signals to get composite video out. Hence what it requires
is not just cable but an adapter with a small circuit built in.
There are a no of S-Video to RCA cables in the market and on ebay etc. which
are without such circuit and are obviously not going to work.
It's painfully surprising to not find such a cable/adapter after going through
many shops in Pune and on the net. Would appreciate pointers on this if
anyone can provide.
