On the DVI connector to VGA does anyone know what pin the video signal comes out of? I am trying to connect the video to my television. I have my Apple 17" connected to the other connector.

I'm not really sure what you mean but if you want to hhook it up to your TV you need a composit or S-video adapter.

There is no composite video or S-video signal on a DVI or VGA connector. You can only hook up a TV if your graphics card has a S-video out connector.

On DVI and VGA, there is not just one Video signal, but the signal is splitted up, to have an improved image quality.
