you'll be needing a composite out cable for the video card and a mic plug to dual phono plugs cable (It's a Y-shaped cable). The first single composite (A.K.A a sinlge phono plug cable) should have come with the card. If not, both can be purchased at radio shack.

I need help too I have a Elsa Geforce 2 Ultra with TV-Out and when I try to tune it into TV I get a really weak signal i can only just see icons through static. I have a small cable that came with card that goes into s-video socket and connects to an Arial cable (I used N64 one). Someome said I need a scart cable are they correct. Is it a cable with 1 red and 1 yellow wire that I need?
