Connecting pc to tv


With PC and TV both off, connect the cable for the monitor to the back of the computer, then to the jack on the back of the TV. Turn the TV,then the PC on. Essentially, you're just replacing your monitor with the TV. However, you may need to select the input on the TV to accept the signal on the computer. Also, you may need to adjust the resolution on the computer in order to get a picture

Are you able to use the VIZIO 47" Class 1080p 480Hz SPS LED Backlit LCD HDTV as a computer monitor and use a wireless keyboard and mouse to browse on a pc through rgb and speaker jack?


Hi there,

Yes, all new TV's of 1080p specification will have a dedicated PC connection (and should have either a 3.5mm audio socket or 2 x RCA inputs for audio).

The most common way is to use a VGA lead (with 3.5mm audio lead) - VGA out of pc to VGA in of TV. 3.5mm audio output of pc (ie headphone socket) to 3.5mm audio input of TV.

You will just require the correct VGA lead long enough to connect to your pc.

The wireless keyboard and mouse will need to be connected to your pc, and must be within "line of sight" to the wireless receiver.

If you specifically want to use pc output to RGB input (and RCA audio in) of your TV, then you will need to obtain a long VGA to RGB conversion cable, plus 3.5mm audio lead. Have a look on Ebay for a coversion cable.

To convert a LCD Monitor into a TV
Instructions
    • 1

      Compare internal and external TV tuners that are designed for use with computers. See if the tuner supports HD, DVI, component video, S-video, stereo, surround sound or other features you might like to use. Ensure that any internal devices will work with the expansion slots in your computer.

    • 2

      Purchase a regular TV tuner if your monitor has S-video, coaxial or RCA inputs. These can be seen at the back of the monitor. S-video should be clearly marked; coaxial is a large round port, and RCA inputs are typically smaller and brightly colored. If your monitor does not have these inputs, purchase a special TV tuner designed just for computer monitors. If you would like to use the tuner with your computer and monitor, choose an internal TV tuner. If you're using your computer monitor as a television on its own, select a stand-alone external tuner. Install the internal TV in your computer, if applicable.

    • 3

      Connect the TV tuner to the monitor with the proper cable. Select S-video as the connection option if both your tuner and monitor support it. Choose RCA component video as your next option. Use coaxial only if your monitor and tuner do not have the aforementioned connections. If your monitor has none of these connections, use a standard VGA cable to connect the tuner and monitor.

    • 4

      Connect the tuner's audio outputs to your monitor's speakers. If your monitor has no speakers directly attached, connect external speakers to the TV tuner. This can usually be achieved using regular audio or RCA cable.

    • 5

      Install an HD antenna high on a wall if you will be picking up free over-the-air television signals with your monitor. If you will be using satellite or cable TV with your monitor, simply plug the satellite or cable set top box into the tuner using RCA or coaxial cables. Then connect the tuner directly to the monitor.

    • 6

      Set your tuner to the channel you use to pick up television stations. If you receive free over-the-air television, this channel will be 3 or 4. If you have satellite or cable TV, this station is determined by your television service provider. Check the documentation that came with your system to determine which channel to set the tuner on. You will probably need to change channels using the satellite or cable box rather than the TV tuner.

for the HD15 connection you need to set your TV to PC mode

 

the only thing I can think that you may be doing wrong is that you need to "ACTIVATE" the external outputs on the laptop,as they are not on by default.

 

To switch video output mode  LCD / CRT (monitor/PC mode) /TV mode plus some dual modes LCD + CRT / LCD + TV

 

I have found that the overlays used for video playback do not work in the dual modes,  (and I have found that CRT monitor mode is best for connecting to a large TV)

 

so switch your TV to PC input,  connect your HD15 cable and SWITCH output mode on your laptop (usually Fn F5) press until you get an output,

 

you will also need to connect audio, so get a phono -> 3.5mm jack plug and plug that in also, and you are ready to rock and roll
