Hello, I am trying to connect my notebook computer to my TV so that I can work on a yearbook for the middle school I work at. I have a rgb to audio/video cord, but the cord has a blue, green, and red connector (not the normal red, yellow, and white). I am really confused. I also have a DVR hooked to the TV for HD. Can I somehow hook the computer to the DVR box and change some setting?

Okay, seems like everyone who posts a question gets a solution on this site. I have an issue. I have a notebook: hp pavillion dv9000. I have a tv: ilo lcd 42" flatscreen. There are all these hookup slots in the back of the tv and the sides of my laptop. I connected a svga cord from the laptop to the tv, and a stereo y adapter. I get audio, but to video. What do I do? Is there a setting I don't know about on the tv, or a setting I need to change on the laptop? Help!!! It's so frustrating.
