Hello, everyone,

I'm setting up a video security system where I work and looking for a little help.

Right now I have the cameras mounted and they are connected to a splitter which is connected via a video cable to a new Vizio 20" TV/Monitor.

I can see the images clearly on the monitor. However, I need to run the screen that is on the monitor to a computer (we are buying a dedicated computer for this). I then need to connect this computer to the internet and get software where my manager can watch the place from his home (remote desktop access?).

There is an S-Video outlet as well as a blue serial cable outlet ("PC RGB" is the label) on the Vizio TV.


1. Which of these connections is more up to date? S-Video or this serial cable?

2. What is the most inexpensive option I have for a CPU or laptop computer with these connections? Recommendations?

3. What software is there that can be installed so he can access this PC from his home? Anything included in Vista or XP?

4. Will a wireless connection be fast enough for this or will I need a cable connection?

Thanks for the help. Have a good weekend everyone. :smile:
