outputting to TV from Latitude D820??

Discussion in 'Dell' started by Thomas M. Goethe, Apr 14, 2006.

  1. Hmm, I checked the ports available on the Latitude D820 and everything
    was there I needed, including the S video that I sometimes do presentations
    with on TV (and watch videos on for fun.) But there may not actually be an S
    video on the computer, just on the chart.

    If they left the port off, does anyone know if one of those cheap $2 VGA
    to S video and composite video will work? I had very mixed results with them
    the few times I tried one.

    I might not want to keep the computer I just ordered if I can't get it
    to output to a tv.

    I realize the port replicator has an S video port, but I really don't
    want to be hauling it away from my desk.

    Thanks in advance.

    So how do you like your system so far, S-Video notwithstanding? I'm looking
    at one of those puppies in the next month or so.

  3. Clint,

    I just ordered it, everything I've read has been pretty impressive,
    though. I just hope there is a decent solution to this video issue.

  4. Ow, let us know, I almost ordered one yesterday, but now there's one
    more thing to think about...

    When it comes in, let us know if it has a built-in microphone!

  5. Dang, hadn't thought to check for that! It isn't scheduled to ship until

    The brochure available on the website stated that there is an
    integrated omni-directional microphone.
