We carry below specialized audio/video adapters for your ThinkPad. We manufacture these adapters and are guaranteed to be better than the IBM adapters that have been discontinued. Our new Pro S-Video & Audio to 3 RCA adapters are also compatible with your IBM ThinkPad and provide both color video and audio - unlike cheap adpaters that only provide a black and white video signal.
Your IBM ThinkPad may have an "S-Video to TV" jack that has 4 or 7 little holes - our IBM S-Video to RCA adapters will fit both the 4-pin and 7-pin svideo jacks on your ThinkPad.

If you want to connect your ThinkPad directly to your VCR to watch DVDs and bypass the macrovision copyright protection then click on "S-Video to VCR" below.
Comment from one of our customers (an IBM employee): "I received a new IBM Thinkpad T23 as part of a corporate refresh, and while I was happy when I read that it had a TV-out port, I was fit to be tied by the time I'd spent a week trying to find a cable that would fit the port; realizing that this was some IBM version of an S-Video port. I contacted one of my pre-sales counterparts in the Thinkpads division. He was aware
of the problem and told me that IBM had made a cable for this port, but had stopped production, and located your company for me. I was very pleased when I received the Pro SVideo to 3 RCA cable from your company, and tried it. It took a minute to figure out how to enable the port through the Display Properties. Since then, I've had a great tool for presentations, and a nice mobile set-top DVD player when I travel, or any other time that it's handy. I've already sent out your URL along with a statement of how
nice it was on a recent trip to have a DVD player for the tv in my hotel room to everyone on my team. Thanks for making a quality product to fill a gap left by the
manufacturer, and meet my needs as a consumer!"
