Does anyone out there know, or know where I might find the Pin out signals for a 7 pin s-video output on a HP laptop, modle ze5738rs? HP is clueless. I know that one of the three center pins carries a composit video, but I'm not sure which other pin I need to use for a ground. My attempts with pins 5,6,&7 up to now have yielded a poor picture and flashes of light. I like many others here are trying to output video to a VCR/TV. I'm a little leary of crossing the wrong pins too long and ruining the video card. I found the following web site, but have gotten different results than it described in the following pinout list; although, I am using it for a refference for the pin numbers. http://www.technick.net/public/code/cp_dpage.php?aiocp_dp=pinconhav_s_video_7pin Pin Name Description 1 GND Ground (Y) 2 GND Ground (C) 3 Y Intensity (Luminance) 4 C Color (Chrominance) 5 - - 6 V Composite Video 7 VGND Composite Ground
Pin 7 on my unit appears to be the composit video and it will give a video display when paired with 1,2,5,&6; I have not tried 3 or 4 since the basic 4 pin s-video layout seems to be standard, even with my unit. Pin 7 paired with 1 or 2 does seem to give a better picture; howerver, I don't know if all of these pins 1,2,5,&6 are equal grounds or if I have a different return circuit on each one. Anyone have any idea which pin should be used for the ground. Thanks in advance, email@example.com
Thanks for the reply, Sorry, I didn't notice the spy ware, maybe my software dumped it automatically. As for the s-video being right, pins 5,6,& 7 DO NOT MATCH the pinouts that I had listed, hence why I asked the question of which GROUNG pin to pair with the composit out.
