How to connect to TV with USB to AV cable? I tried to connect, but nothing happened! (10.04 Lucid)


I think you might be talking about a cable to be used with a digital camera, not a computer.

does yours look like this?

or this:

This cable is meant to connect a digital camera to a TV. It's useless with computers

There are adaptors, such as the one in the first image, that do this job. A few of them work well with Ubuntu, you should carefully select one that does if you're going to buy one, because may of them have problems.

But, I think you're probably not talking about this thing. So, no, a simple cable will not work.

  • Please add a picture of what the cable looks like to your post. You will probably find one with google image search: it'd be very helpful. Nov 20 '10 at 20:07
  • sorry ! I can't found on google :( ...the cable is to connect to the AV port in TV from usb port of the computer

  • Do you have a model number or a product name? Unfortunately, with the current information it could be a million different ones. Please also add the output of the command dmesg after you've plugged in the cable to your question, that'd be really helpful as well. Nov 26 '10 at 17:17
