Default Hooking my LCD TV as a monitor

I have sylvania 6620LCT LCD TV, im am trying to use it as my computer monitor but i can seem to get it working. I have a 7600GT. I am trying to use one of these http://www.electronicplus.com/images...cts/45-489.jpg to hook it up, with another yellow video cord going into that yellow slot on the tv. I am getting no signal. Do i need different drivers? TV setting? any help is greatly appreciated!

you probably need a video breakout cable. the "mini-din" connector on the back of your video card isn't actually an s-video socket, it carries several video signals. aside from that you need to use the nVidia Forceware settings to enable the tv output.
