I recently got a new TV and I attempted to connect my computer to it using an s-video cable. Everything worked out fine, but the picture on the tv is extremely grainy. I can't even read what most things say from about 2 feet back. Does anybody know what's wrong? Thanks in advance,

Andrew

What kind of video card do you have? Have you looked through the display settings for anything that could be to blame?

Try lowering the resolution as your TV may not be able to handle higher resolutions. You will probably find its maximum supported resolution in the manual.

It's normal, it's just the awful picture quality of a TV compared to a monitor. You won't notice it when watching a DVD though (if that's what you were planning to do)
