Your Dell Inspirion has an S-Video jack that has 7 holes and a rectangular hole. Your Dell probably came with a dinky 5 inch adapter. Well, guess what? The weakest link is that cable. We've developed a "straigh-shot" solution using only UL approved cabling.
Our S-Video connector only has 4 pins, since that is all you'll need - the other three holes on the Dell are for composite video and digital (S/PDIF) audio. However, you'll like using our "S-Video to RCA" adapter better to output the video and you'll only need the digital audio if you have a digital audio input. Get our S-Video to 3 RCA"
to output both video and analog audio - that way you can connect to your analog TV's audio input. If you have a Dell Inspiron 8100 with digital audio then consider our Dell Inspiron 8100 S-Video, Composite Video and SPDIF digital audio
If you want to connect your Dell 8100 to your S-Video TV, then consider our 7-pin to TV
adapter that provides a straight shot solution - insead of using Dell's adapter that can result in signal degradation due to the couplings.Reason # 5369
of why our adapter was purchased:
"I was refered to your company and this specific adapter by a DELL service tech. Without this adapter, it is impossible to hook up the DVD feature on my notebook to my TV. Your web site was most informative and easy to navigate. Thank you for a pleasant experience."
Remember, the S-Video connector is ONLY for video - you'll need to use our "2 RCA Plugs to Stereo Plug" to send the audio from your stereo headphone jack to your TV or our "S-Video to 3 RCA" adapter below.
The adapter is available in 6, 12, 24 and 1 ft. lengths. Click on the arrow button next to "Length" to select the size you want...all currently for the same price.
Note, the "S-Video to 3 RCA" adapter below is also compatible with your Dell.>
