Left: Looks like an audio-in or out socket
Middle: Looks like a composite video-in or out socket
Right: Looks like an s-video in or out socket

I could be wrong, but that's what they suggest to me.

its for using a TV as a monitor. u just need to put your desktop at 800x600 or smaller at 60hertz. then you'ed beable to see it on the TV once u switch it in display settings.
