Help with S Video

Please move if this is in the wrong section. I have a 78000gs and I want to use the S-Video out for preview but am unable to. I currently have 2 monitors attached already. Nvida says it is because you can not run 3 at a time. Also I was told by them that I need to get another graphics card for the tv or s-video out?

I can't get S-video to work at all with one monitor or two.

You can't drive 3 monitors at once with the card. However, you can drive a VGA out + S-video out at the same time... and some other combinations.

2- However, you probably want to use the external preview option in your editing program. Set the video to go out via firewire to your TV or broadcast monitor.

Ok, how do I get so that I can preview my work on an external monitor using firewire? I have never done this. Most of my stuff has been for the web. I run sony vegas.
