But remember for if you use vga to a dvi connector then you will need a seperate sound out lead to your tv

Code for connect windows media center to tv


Instead of trying to connect this to your TV via 8-digit code, you should try running an HDMI cord from your computer to the back of your TV. Quality of picture is better, and it streams flawlessly.

How do i connect my laptop to my dynex tv?


This depends on your hardware. If you have HDMI port on your laptop and on your TV it is the best and easyest option for your case. Just plug-in the hdmi cable, go to your computer Control Panel->Display and configure the second monitor as extended. Your TV must be monitor number 2 and you should use recommended settings for the picture resolution.
From your TV go to input source list and select the HDMI port.
Now you should see your desktop background without the taskbar and icons. So you can drag and drop the application you want to see on your Dynex TV(secondary monitor) and that's it. This method will bring video and audio just with one cable. Of course you can use VGA port on the Tv, but the quality of the picture will drop and you must have separate cable for the sound.

Can not hook up to my Toshiba TV what cord do i need in order to make it work


Since this model of All-In-One Computer already has a built-in Digital/Analogue Television Function, as part of its standard specification, I will assume that your reason for wanting to interconnect these two devices is that you want to export computer, internet or other IT-based multimedia images to the TV for an enhanced viewing experience due to the TV's larger screen size.

The All-in-one computer has a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) Port.

If the TV also has an HDMI port, what would be required is the best quality HDMI Cable that the User can afford.

All electrical/electronic interconnections between cables and ports suffer some degree of degradation or dissipation of the signal traveling along the cable. The most efficient metal for electronic connections is gold due to its comparatively high level of electrical conductivity compared to that of other metals used for electronic interconnections.

The best cable choice would therefore be a gold-plated HDMI Cable (see below).

If the TV has no HDMI port, an HDMI to Video Graphics Array VGA Cable Adapter or ([Victor] Radio Corporation of America - the inventors) RCA/PhonoVideo Cable Adapter between the HDMI Cable leading from the computer and the corresponding VGA or RCA/PhonoVideo port on the TV should resolve the connectivity mismatch (see images below).

Once connected, the TV Remote Control should be used to change the Signal Source Input from its automatic standard (Default) setting to PC Input:

Menu -> Source -> PC -> OK.

How do i connect my compaq pc to tv


Without the model number comptuer, I cannot verify what outputs your comptuer has. Without this, I will provide the various ways a PC can be connected to a TV.

1. Use a VGA to DVI adapter (HD-15 pin to DVI). Use either a standard VGA montor extension cable (cheaper) or a DVI extension cable (more expensive) to make the connection

2. If you computer has a DVI output, use a DVI extension cable only

3. If your computer has HDMI output - use a HDMI to DVI adapter and either a HDMI or DVI extension cable.

In all 3 cases, you will probably need to go to the comptuer's Display Properties and adjust the screen size so it looks OK on your TV (go to the Control Panel - find Display) and adjust the screen resolution to match the format of your TV.

One note - when purchasing DVI cables, understand that there are 3 types - DVI-D (digital), DVI-A (analog) and DVI-I (digital and analog) and that the pin outs are different. Be sure to check your the owners manual of your TV to find which connection it needs.

Here is a good reference for DVI types

How do i use my computer and pc to tv at the same time


Hello,
Connect the computer to the TV
1. Through an S-Video cable or
2. A VGA cable,
depending on the input option of you TV, and the output options of your computer.
Then from Graphic properties, extend your desktop to a TV if S-Video, or to a second monitor if VGA cable. For older TVs resolution on computer screen may have to be set to 800x600.
Hope it helps.

Is it possible to connect my computer with a VGA output to my HDTV with HDMI inputs?


hi there, sure it is.
either check if the video card has two output interfaces(VGA and HDMI) so use the white HDMI-otlet with a cable and your TV, else do get an VGA-to- HDMI adaptor and try connecting the VGA outlet and your TV-set.

Good luck

How to view TV in a Desktop PC via a USB TV Tuner?


Depending on which kind of tv tuner you are looking (analog basic cable) or HD tuner, the higher end tv tuners will usually handle both basic cable or connecting via satellite or some sort of set top box.

I would look for the ATI TV wonder HD, your going to want a tv tuner that can do hardware encoding on the actual tuner itself, older tuners will rely on your pc to process a lot of the data.

I need to know how to run my ps3 thru the optical wire to my hdtv


Before you start ensure that you read the TV instruction manual to know which resolution supports it. Do not switch on the TV and your console

You can connect your Playstation 3 to your TV in three different methods:

  1. Connecting with an AV cable
  2. Connecting with an HDMI cable
  3. Connecting with an Optical Cable


Connecting with an AV Cable:


  1. You are supplied with a Composite AV cable which would typically look like the below image
  2. Connect the AV Multi Out Connector to the socket on the back of your PS3 Console.
  3. Match the colors of the Jacks with the connectors on the TV which says "Video in".




Connecting with an HDMI Cable:

HDMI cable is not supplied with the PS3. You need to purchase it seperately. This cable would enhance the audio-video quality of your TV.

  1. Just connect one end of the connector to the HDMI OUT connector socket on the back of the console
  2. Connect the other end to the socket on the back of your TV which says HDMI IN.



Connecting with an Optical cable:

You need to purchase an Optical cable if you wish to connect your PS3 console through a digital audio device (Home theater, AV receiver etc.,). You need to connect Video ouput seperately with a help of Video output cable (HDMI, AV Cable etc.,)

  1. Connect one end of the optical cable to "Audio Out" socket on the console
  2. Connect the other end to the audio receiver.


Note: You can also connect your console to the Internet to use the Playstation 3 internet capabilities. Here's how you do it:

The Playstation 3 only supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T type networks. It needs a High speed internet connection. Do not connect it to a standard telephone connection or cables that are not supported. It might cause a malfunction or damage to the system.

Laptop Multimedia Ports Info
video_out_imgpcmag.gif

Component Video Out: Connects a TV or HDTV to your notebook so you can view high-quality, high-definition video streaming from the notebook. This three-piece connection (color-coded red, blue, and green) is the best method for sending video from your notebook to an HDTV or anything that receives component video. This connection allows the chrominance (color) and luminance (brightness) portions of a video signal to be processed separately, thus producing higher-quality video than an S-Video connection. S-Video works similarly, but component video improves color accuracy even further by splitting the chrominance signal into two portions.
Composite In/RCA: Connects a gaming console or camcorder to your notebook, for viewing video or playing games on the notebook. Color-coded red, white, and yellow, composite video input uses standard RCA-style jacks to connect your notebook to receive video and audio signals from your TV, VCR, game consoles etc.
tv_tuner_imgpcmag.gif

TV Tuner/75-Ohm Coaxial: Connects a cable box, TV, or VCR to your notebook, so you can watch and record TV content on the notebook.
Sometimes called an Rf input, a 75-Ohm coaxial cable can carry video and stereo signals simultaneously. RF cable connectors (often called F-type connectors) screw onto the 75-ohm jack, are pushed onto it, or connect via a dongle that vendors usually supply.
spdif_imgpcmag.gif
S/Pdif/Dolby Ac3 Digital Out: Connects your notebook to speakers or a stereo receiver to play digital audio stored on the notebook. S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) is a standard audio-transfer file format, usually referred to as digital audio. This connection allows the transfer of audio without converting the signal to and from an analog format, which can degrade its quality. If you also have an S/PDIF In port, you can play digital music stored on an MP3 player through your notebook. The headphone jacks found on some notebooks double as S/PDIF Ports.
dvi_port_pcmag.gif
DVI: Connects a digital projector or LCD panel to your notebook to display in large format either video content or a PowerPoint presentation stored on the notebook. DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a multipin connection used for passing standard-definition and high-definition digital video signals. It's found on HDTV tuners, a growing number of DVD players, HDTV-ready televisions, and some computer displays. DVI-D is the type of DVI connection found on most home video gear and carries digital-only signals. DVI-I is used with some computer video cards and can pass both digital and analog video signals. Some TVs have DVI-I inputs for greater hookup flexibility. DVI connections transfer video signals in pure digital form, which is especially beneficial if you're using a fixed-pixel display like a plasma, LCD, or DLP TV.

firewire_port_pcmag.gif
Firewire/ I.Link 400/ 1394: Connects a digital camcorder or external hard drive to transfer (but not display) large files, such as MPEG video, to your notebook. Also known as IEEE 1394, this is an extremely fast (commonly up to 400 megabits per second), two-way digital connection used for plugging in Your DV camera or other peripherals (such as an external hard drive or optical drive) to your notebook. It is used in digital camcorders because it is one of the few connections capable of quickly transferring full-motion video.
s_video_in_pcmag.gif
S-Video In: Connects a digital camcorder to your notebook to display video stored on the camera on your notebook's screen. Also, if your VCR has an S-Video Out port, you can transfer your VHS tapes to digital format. S-Video inputs use a four-pin jack to receive video signals from camcorders, gaming consoles, TV, or any device that has an S-Video out port. the S in S-Video stands for separate: S-Video connections transmit the chrominance (color) and luminance (brightness) portions of a video signal along different paths, allowing them to be processed separately, though S-Video does not produce as vivid an image as component video. This is a common way to display content from a digital camcorder or any device that has an S-Video Out port. (Firewire also transfers data files from your camcorder to your notebook, but it can't display video in real time on your notebook.)
S-Video Out: Connects a plasma or newer TV to your notebook to display video content streaming from the notebook. The most common way to connect a TV to a notebook, S-Video Out uses a four-pin jack to send signals from your notebook to your TV or anything that accepts S-Video In.

and use Fn+F5 or Fn + F4
to switch your ntbook to tv
