Hi, I have a computer and TV in my basement. The TV is about 10 ft away from the computer.

The computer has a graphics card that has the regular monitor plugin and then a circular plug next to it (that I don't know what goes into it).

The TV is about 4 yrs old and has audio/video cables and that stuff.

How can I make what's on my computer show up on my TV screen?

Thanks!

That pluf would be SVideo, check to see if your TV supports that. Should have a plug just like that "circle" one on your gpu

Ok, thanks for the Svideo --> AV link; I'll probably get that. Now how can I make it longer? And also, how do I transfer the sound?

Also, the ebay link you provided had an image at the bottom that has "Video Out" and "S-Video Out" circled. But doesn't one of them have to be able to do input?

Thanks

Your video card is s-video out, your tv has a av in. You should be able to plug them right in. Ask the seller on ebay for a longer cable. I dont know why they circled a av out, maybe thats all they had to show what av looked like?
