The instructions say I have a TV wizard.

But I don't find any.

Also, I have an adapter that came with another card that has one end
that will plug into an output on the video card. It has a phono plug
on the other end. Is this the correct adapter I need to use for TV
output? Does standard two conductor phono cord with the proper jacks
work for the connection from the adaptor to the TV?

The adapter that came with the card should provide [composite video out].
If your television has a RCA phono jack for [composite video in] you should
be good to go.

A standard two conductor phono cord IS NOT suitable for [composite video].
A special cable with RCA phono jacks/plugs is required because video spans
the frequency range of 30 Hz to 5 MHz, while audio frequencies do not extend
past 30 KHz.
