You'll need a VGA to component video converter box or cable.

Re: VGA out support Component Video?

The video signal at the VGA output is suitable for connection to a TV only if the TV has a VGA input. The VGA video signal is analog and has separate red, green and blue components, but it is in a format for computer monitors.

 

If your TV does not have a VGA input but has a component video input, then you can get a component video output from the S-video TV-out connector of your Inspiron E1705 by using a special component video adapter that is available from DELL.

Ok, I should connect to the the S-Video out and use an adapter to connect to Component video.

 

Will Dell's "S-Video to TV-Composite Cable with SPDIF Adapter for Dell Inspiron 1420" work on the E1705?

Re: VGA out support Component Video?

I expect that the component video adapter for the Inspiron 1420 will work on your Inspiron E1705. However you had better confirm with DELL unless somebody posts the answer here. I expect that the component video adapter I have for my Inspiron 1520 would work on the Inspiron 1420 and E1705 but I can't say for sure.

Thanks.  Everything work ok with your SPDIF digital audio cable connection?  Or do you recommend using the standard audio jack on the laptop?

Yes the digital audio connection works fine. Be sure to use a good quality coaxial cable to avoid interference on the TV. I use a Philips digital audio coaxial cable.

Thanks again.  I'll get one of those adapters ordered and give it a whirl.
