Question about using an older television as second monitor

I have the late 2006 iMac 24 listed below (Core 2 Duo) and would like to connect a standard television as a second monitor. The telly has (2) S-video ports and the usual RCA-type plugs. Are linkages available to allow this with my iMac? If so, could you direct me to the proper components? Will audio be available to me, as well? Can I acquire the components locally (Radio Shack, CC, BB, etc.)? Thanks for your assistance.

Hi jjsea
To connect a TV using S-video or Composite (yellow) cable you will need the M9319G/A Mini-DVI to Video adapter, which may be available at some BestBuy's.

The iMac's Mini DVI port does not support the Audio, that will have to come from your Headphone jack using a separate RCA (red & white) cable and an adapter like the one in the next link:

or an adapter/cable like the next one:

I'm using this same set-up and it works great for watching all types of DVD movies, Q-Time movies, YouTube videos, iPhoto slideshows and more, but the set-up is a little rough for working in text documents.

  • I have a question about using multiple ipads in our school.  Each of our teachers have a iPad and AppleTV in their classroom.  The issue is, with our classrooms so close in proximity to one another, is there a way to pair teacher

    I have a question about using multiple ipads in our school.  Each of our teachers have a iPad and AppleTV in their classroom.  The issue is, with our classrooms so close in proximity to one another, is there a way to pair teacher #1 iPad to its AppleTV without effecting/projecting onto the adjacent teachers #2 classroom AppleTV?

    Not as such.
    Give the AppleTV units unique names and also enable Airplay password in settings with unique passwords for each teacher.

  • Hi, I have quick question about use of USEBEAN tag in SP2. When I specify a scope of SESSION for the java bean, it does not keep the values that I set for variable in the bean persistent.Thanks,Sonny

     

    Make sure that your bean is implementing the serializable interface and that
    you are accessing the bean from the session with the same name.

  • Question about using new battery in old Powerbook

    I have a pre-intel Powerbook G4, and the battery is pretty much toast (lasts about 15 minutes now). I have ordered a new battery for it, and I have this question about using it:
    Am I smarter to keep the new strong battery out of the PB most days (as I usually work with it plugged in at home) and just pop it in when I know I will be out surfing on batteries? Or is it just as good living in my laptop 24/7 and only occasionally being called upon to do its job?
    Current bad Battery Information below:
    Battery Installed: Yes
    First low level warning: No
    Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 1144
    Remaining Capacity (mAh): 1115
    Amperage (mA): 0
    Voltage (mV): 12387
    Cycle Count: 281
    thanks folks, Shereen

    Hi, Shereen. Every Powerbook battery wants to be used — drained and then recharged — at least every couple of weeks. If you've always used your Powerbook on AC power nearly all the time, and not followed that pattern of discharging and recharging the battery every week or two, it's possible that your use habits have shortened the lifespan and prematurely diminished the capacity of your old battery. Of course it's also possible that your battery is merely old, as a battery's capacity also diminishes with age regardless of how it's used. You didn't say how old the battery is in years, so this may or may not be an issue. I mention it only because it can be an issue.
    For general information on handling a battery for the longest possible lifespan, see this article. My advice on the basis of that article and long experience reading these forums is that it would be OK to do as you propose, but I doubt that you'd derive any significant benefit from it. You would still want to be sure of putting the new battery through a charge/discharge cycle every week or two, even if you didn't have a reason to use the Powerbook away from home or your desk, because sitting unused outside the computer is just as bad for a battery as sitting unused inside it. And you should never remove the battery from your computer when it's completely or almost completely discharged and let it sit that way any longer than a day or two.

  • Question about using TVARV in an ABAP program

    Hello gurus, Im sorry about the silly question.
    I have a question about using TVARV in an ABAP program.
    A program is presenting a problem and I think that in this code:
    SELECT SIGN OPTI LOW HIGH
      FROM TVARV
      INTO TABLE R_1_163431035_VELOCIDADE
      WHERE  NAME = '1_163431035_VELOCIDADE'
      AND    TYPE = 'S'.
      IF ZMM001-VELOCIDADE_B   IN R_1_163431035_VELOCIDADE AND
          ZOPERADORAS-OPERADORA = 'ABCD' AND
          ZMM001-MATERIAL       IN R_1_163431035_PRODUTO.
      ELSE.
      ENDIF.
    What happens is that the value "ZMM001-SPEED" B not exist in "R1_163431035_VELOCIDADE" but the program executes commands under the IF and not under the ELSE, as I imagine it would work. Is this correct ?
    I am new to ABAP programming, but I have a lot of XP in other programming languages ​​and this makes no sense to me.
    Anyone know where I can find some documentation of the use of "TVARV" in ABAP programs?
    I search the Internet if other programmers use TVARV this way, but found nothing, which leads me to think that was a quick and dirty solution that used here.
    If this is a bad way to program, what would be the best way?
    Regards
    Ronaldo.

    Hi Ronaldo,
    But in this case, the range is not empty, there are 17 records, in this way.:
    For the column "SING" all values ​​are "E"
    It means that the result is false if ZMM001-VELOCIDADE_B has the same value as one of the 17 records (E = exclude).
    For instance, if it has value 'C' and one of 17 records matches C, then the result is false.
    The "IF" with "IN" using "TVARV" as used in the program of the post above has the same behavior of a selection screen?
    Yes, the same behavior as the selection criterion to be exact. You can press the help key in the complex selection dialog for more info.
    I know it's a silly and very basic question, but other language that I used, only the SQL has the "IN" operator, but I think they work in different ways, so I would like to understand how it works in ABAP.
    Not silly ;-). Yes they work differently.

  • Question about Using PAPI Web Service in PowerBuilder 9

    Hi, all.
    I Have a simple question about using papiws in power builder 9.
    In pb9, I created a new Web Service Proxy Wizard and I input a url for papiws(ex. http://seraphpernote:7001/papiws/PapiWebService) and click next.
    But I couldn't get any Service List.
    In Eclipse, I used this url for using papiws well.
    Does anybody know about this case??
    help me plz.

    IIRC you must activate PAPI-WS for the engine. In Studio you do it by right-clicking on the project, then "engine preferences". In enterprise/standalone you must activate PAPI-WS in the Admin Center.

  • Question about using 10g/11g and APEX ...

    Hi,
    I just recently learned of Oracle's APEX and have a few questions about using it.
    Can I use APEX with express, standard, and enterprise editions of 10g and 11g?
    Are all of these free to use?

    You might want to read about APEX rather than jumping into questions that are reasonably well documented. Info at http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/application_express/index.html
    Your specific questions:
    1) Apex is a package that can be installed into any properly licensed database.
    2) The price for the production license of the database varies by edition.
    The price for Express Edition is $0 for use in production. Part of the cost for that edition is 'no Oracle Support based support, no patches, data volume limitation, etc.'

  • Question about using Runtime.getRuntime();

    hi all
    i have a question about using Runtime.getRuntime(). if i use this to get a runtime reference to run an external program, is it considered as starting a new thread inside the thread that starts it?
    is it safe to do it in the Session EJB? if not, what can you recommand to do it? thanks

    hi all
    i have a question about using Runtime.getRuntime().
    if i use this to get a runtime reference to run an
    external program, is it considered as starting a new
    thread inside the thread that starts it? No. Starting a process, starts a process. Threads have nothing to do with it.
    is it safe to do it in the Session EJB? if not, what
    can you recommand to do it? thanksSo what? Run another process? If you want to run another process in java then your choices are to use Runtime.exec() or use JNI. And using JNI will probably end up doing exactly the same thing as Runtime.exec().
    "Safe" is harder. Typically to correctly use Runtime.exec() you must use threads. And as noted threads ideally should not be used. You can use them but if you do you had better understand why they didn't want you using them in the first place. You had also better be sure that you really want to wait for it to complete.
    Other than that Runtime.exec() is safe because it can't crash the VM like other interfaces can (like JNI.)

  • How to use an iPad as a second monitor with Bluetooth?

    I know there are several apps that will allow me to use my iPad as a second monitor over my wifi connection. But is there a way to us it over blue tooth or with a special cord?

    I use a projector as a second monitor for a desk top. When the shutter is closed it is hard to minimize or exit a window. I would like to use my iPad as an additional second monitor so I can tell what I am doing.

  • Using a TV as a second monitor

    I'm trying to use a TV as a second monitor (for watching movies) with Windows through Boot Camp (netflix instant play isn't support in Mac yet). When I plug in the mini-DVI adapter with the yellow video cable, my screen goes blank for a moment and comes back on but nothing happens on the TV. I've tried updating the nVidia and ATI drivers in Windows, but they won't install properly. My System Profiler says I'm running Intel GMA x3100 graphics. I've tried what I can think of and what I've read. Can anyone offer advice?

  • Questions about Using APIs to import Bills and Routings - AND COSTS

    Hi Forum - the following is a back-and-forth with a customer about use of APIs - Inventory developer suggested I post the question here. Note the 2nd question - and thanks for any assistance.
    SR# 7332152.994 ALCOA
    Instructions given to ct:
    Q1 - Can I load the bill header and components at the same time?
    You should be able to load the bill header and components at the same time. Customer loads bill and component data inserting enough "other" data for each so that the bill sequence id will be derived. For the component record, the assembly item, org and alternate_bom_designator values will be used by BMCOIN to derive the bill_sequence_id.
    Example:
    INSERT INTO BOM_BILL_OF_MTLS_INTERFACE
    ORGANIZATION_CODE,
    ITEM_NUMBER,
    ALTERNATE_BOM_DESIGNATOR,
    PROCESS_FLAG,
    TRANSACTION_TYPE
    VALUES
    'M1',
    '&PARENT_ITEM',
    NULL,
    '1',
    'CREATE'
    INSERT INTO BOM_INVENTORY_COMPS_INTERFACE b
    ORGANIZATION_CODE,
    ASSEMBLY_ITEM_NUMBER,
    ALTERNATE_BOM_DESIGNATOR,
    COMPONENT_ITEM_NUMBER,
    OPERATION_SEQ_NUM,
    COMPONENT_QUANTITY,
    EFFECTIVITY_DATE,
    PROCESS_FLAG,
    TRANSACTION_TYPE
    VALUES
    'M1',
    '&PARENT_ITEM',
    NULL,
    '&COMPONENT_ITEM',
    1,
    1,
    trunc(SYSDATE),
    1,
    'CREATE'
    Hi Aruna, some additional information that may be useful:
    We can load/create the bill header and components at the same time using the scripts given (as above)
    Required Data for Creating a Routing : assembly_item_id,
    organization_id, routing_type, transaction_type, process_flag
    And following scripts can be used to load routing header and operations equences.
    INSERT INTO BOM_OP_ROUTINGS_INTERFACE
    (assembly_item_id,
    organization_id,
    routing_type,
    transaction_type,
    process_flag)
    VALUES (2255800,207,1,'Create',1);
    INSERT INTO BOM_OP_SEQUENCES_INTERFACE
    (assembly_item_id,
    organization_id,
    operation_seq_num,
    Department_code,
    effectivity_date,
    transaction_type,
    process_flag,
    operation_description)
    VALUES
    (2255800,207,100,'ASSEMBLY',
    to_date('24-FEB-2009'),'Create',1,
    'Paint Wagon');
    Q2: One more question, can an expense item can be added to the bill and can contribute the cost.
    As there is a confusion of what I asked, below I am rephrasing my question
    By an Expense Inventory Item, I mean an item that is just tracked for quantity only i.e.,Checking the attributes - Inventory Item, Stockable, Transactable under Inventory Tab and not checking the attribute - 'Inventory Asset Value'.
    My question here is, For these Expense Inventory Items, What is the difference between having the 'Costing enabled' attribute turned ON as opposed to having it UNCHECKED
    *Q3 I have tried to load the items and I could only load 1st level of components but could not load second level of bom at the same time.
    While inserting I have inserted plan level too.
    Please let me know if I have to do anything different to load second level.*
    Thanks
    James
