what pixelation should i set my laptop to for s-cideo to a 30inch smasung hdtv?
resolution? you have a couple of options but your best bet is probably 1280x720.
s-video supports NTSC and PAL... So thats 480i or 576i, respectively.
That means you won't benefit with anything better than 640x480, and even that will run interlaced. Order the lines top-to-bottom, A-B-A-B-A-B-A-B etc... Set 'A' will update in one frame, and set 'B' updates the next... Hense the interlaced.
S-Video is a step up from composite just because it sends brightness and color information on seperate wires... But it's functionally equivelant and picture quality isn't too much better, and resolution is identical.
If you want to hook your laptop up to your HDTV, then I recommend something with a better resolution than s-video. Does it support composite? You can always get a converter that takes your laptops VGA input and outputs a proper progressive signal that the TV will understand. You're not going to get good quality with interlaced...
