Default TV Card

Hi I was wondering about the connections on my TV Card. They are as follows


----------
| ( ) <- FM
|
| ( ) <- TV
|
| ( ) <-Can't read what it says but it looks like S-Video
|
| 0 <- Audio In
|
| 0 <- Audio Out
|
| 0 <- Remote
|_____

Could any of these be used to connect, say a VCR?
Or maybe an XBOX i dunno

Also I just noticed something cool. The banner at the top of this website I accidently dragged it onto my TV program (WinFast PVR) and the program started playing the banner. Wierd

s-video can be used to connect a vcr - find out if its an output or an input

Get an RF modulator, plug the yellow/red/white into it, and then plug it into the "TV" coax input. Then tune to channel 3, or whatever the RF modulator is set to.

So this RF modulator would look something like this:
.............._
.............|_| - this end into TV slot on TV card
.............| |
.............| |
............/\/\/\
...........|V|L|R|
...........|_|_|_|


V= Video In
L= Audio Left
R= Audio Right

yeah that's about it. personally i would use the S-Video if it is indeed S-Video. it is almost certainly an input. however then you will need more cables to take care of the audio so overall an RF modulator would be easiest

Ok thanks for everyone's help. The connection that i thought was s-video actually says "S-V/CVBS In". What does that mean?

from memory CVBS is another name for composite video, in which case it's just saying that it doubles as composite in which you'll need an adapter for.

yes, primarily it is S-VIDEO. however with an adapter cable a composite signal can be output/input via a S-VIDEO cable.
