Yes, S-Video and Composite are both methods for connecting to a TV. S-Video
will give you the better picture if your TV has that kind of input. But
you'll still need a sound connection. Composite are those red, white and
yellow connectors. The yellow will supply the picture, the red and white
will deliver the sound. If you have an S-Video connection on your TV, since
it delivers a better picture, you can use the S-Video for picture, then
connect the red and white composite connections to deliver the sound. Of
course it all depends on which computer and what kind of TV you're working
with, but these are good general guidelines.
