Hello,

You'll need a 7-pin to 4-pin male to male s-video cable.

u have an s-video input on your tv but you dont have it on your laptop. i think the output on your laptop is for an additional dongle if your laptop has video in or out or capture.

...He says he has a 7-pin s-video connector on his laptop.

It's for video output.
