    Please good pals,
    A good friend of mine has this Epson Stylus Photo 825 printer
    and would like to connect it to a standart TV ( as monitor prreview
    for printing photographs). The printer has two ports; a USB and
    another ten pin port which looks like an S-Video socket but the manual
    that came with the printer does not say anything about this ten pin
    port. Now my problem is how do I connect the printer to standard TV
    from this port? because all the cable available seems to fit only DVD
    player (5 pins)May I know the name of this ten pin cable / socket?and
    where can I obtain some. Can I match it to the Audio-Video input of a
    standard TV or is there any way I can hook it up to a stand alone
    computer monitor. I know it can be connected to a PC thru" the USB
    port but using a stand-alone monitor or a standard TV will be more
    convinient.
    I have consulted the Epson on-line customer section on the net but
    no reply.
    Thanks in advance.

    "Can this be done?"

    No. Might as well try to power a lawn mower with an ice cream cone.

    Might as well try and get Dolby 5.1 from a wax cylinder

    This cannot be done directly. You will need the proper decoder equipment to
    convert the TV pictures to a print format to be compatible to the printer.
    This takes a computer with the proper boards, and a TV video source to the
    computer.

    You are going to spend some descent money to do what you want.

    There was a device made to do just that though I can't remember
    offhand who made it or what it was called.
    It was a hardware device that enabled you to view digital camera files
    as well as jpgs on your tv screen.

    Print an index sheet, or buy the optional preview screen (low res LCD
    panel - progressive scan and definately not an output you can use with
    anything else). There is no way this printer will drive an external
    monitor let alone a TV screen.
    The connector is for the optional preview screen.

    Thanks a lot for ya responds. I will also like to know if I can
    preview the pictures on a computer b4 printing ie by just hooking it
    up with a USB cable.
    Infact Epson is not trying to be of any help.
