Trying to connect an old Lenovo 0768 to a crt, there is an s video out and vga out on the laptop, however, there is no option to send the signal out the s video, it keeps telling me there is no projector connected. So presumably the only output is the VGA, so how I can tell if the S video is an input?

And do cables such as VGA to RCA/s video exist?

I did have a search and the results were more modern. Not quite as easy as my even older Toshiba laptop!

Hey just a simple idea, from memory you have to have the projector connected and turned on before you turn on the laptop.  Then hopefully it will appear as an available output.  Not sure if this will help, but it's a quick thing to try.

Cheers, it's more my annoyance that the s video doesn't appear to be an output. Which seems odd to have s video input with firewire available.

It would've been straight forward to watch stuff on the tv via the s video.
