S-Video? What kind of resolution are you able to use in game? Also, I'm sure the color is terrible compared to current medium and you should really look into getting a DVI -> HDMI cable/adapter. This article from last year ( http://www.crutchfield.com/S-1P2aALKH51V/learn/learningcenter/home/TV-connections.html ) states that S-Video can only achieve 480i. Whether that's true or not, I don't know as I ditched my S-Video setup when I stopped playing PSX 10 years ago.

Also, how do your bags go behind your action bars when all of your add-ons are disabled? Do you have a screenshot? Not that they should be behind your action bars anyway, but you must either have your UI scale cranked to max (you already said that's not it) or you're playing at the lowest supported resolution due to that S-Video cable.

To fix the bag/petbar positioning (mine were messed up as well), go to Interface > Action Bars and uncheck then recheck all the various extra action bars.

The first reply is right about S video.

Connect using HDMI or regular old DVI. If that still fails, delete your WTF folder and start from scratch.

Your bags sure don't look like they're behind your action bars except maybe at the very very bottom right... but is that really hindering your game play? To be honest, you're probably seeing some odd behavior due to the fact that you're playing at the lowest possible resolution available.

If you're unwilling to troubleshoot the DVI -> HDMI issues that you're experiencing and you're hellbent on playing World of Warcraft on your television at 640x480, then that's what your screen is going to look like.

However, I'll assume that it's most likely your video card that's causing those issues because of the fact it actually has an S-Video port. Almost all (if not, all) video cards manufactured these days come with HDMI or Display Port outputs in addition to DVI/VGA (including laptops).

Alright bro, I see. They looked like regular items in your bags at a quick glance at 6AM. Sorry bro, I don't have a fix for you that Blizzard hasn't already told you to do. Also bro, there's no possible way that an HDMI cable gave you the same resolution as that S-Video cable gives.

Good luck, bro; hopefully someone else can assist you with this.
