Pioneer SD-643HD5 HD set up

I just bought this TV and for the HD port it has a VGA plug. My question is can I buy a VGA to HDMI cable or will I need a converter to watch in HD?

Yes a simple cable will do it. Look for a converter designed to display a computer vga on an HDMI jack. I have one, and would expect it to work in reverse. My cable has a male VGA like a computer monitor cable.

What kind of wire do I need to connect my samsung laptop to panasonic viera hd 3d plasma tv?


Most TVs will have HDMI and RCA component and composite jacks. Some TVs will also have a VGA port. Your laptop will have a VGA port. (If the laptop is fairly new, it may also have an HDMI port.)

Not all TVs will support an HDMI signal from a computer, so the VGA signal is often better. However, that limits you to SD (anything with HDCP will fail.)

Very few TVs ship with the HDMI or component cables. However, there are some vendors who do package the HDMI cable with their TV. Without knowing which exact model of TV and laptop, I can only make a few suggestions. I know that the TCP42ST30 (Plasma 42") doesn't have a VGA port.

Look at your laptop for any external monitor port. VGA ports are generally blue female ports with 15 holes (D-Sub). If your TV has a matching VGA port, get a standard VGA monitor cable.

If you have the VGA port on the laptop but not on the TV, you can try a converting from VGA to HDMI. (You may need a DVI to VGA adapter and either a DVI to HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI adapter.) Note: this gives an analog signal (RGB format) to the TV. You'll also need to make sure that your VGA port is active (in the BIOS for some computers) and then set your computer to send the signal to the external monitor. It is best to turn off both the computer and the TV before connecting the two. Then turn on the TV and set it to the correct input before turning on the computer. (In Windows 7, I set the video signal for the external monitor by right clicking on the desktop and selecting Graphics Properties. Set the signal to the external monitor and click Apply. Then click OK (in the external monitor's screen).)

If this doesn't work, you need a VGA to component video converter. (Not a VGA to component video cable - those are for projectors that read the RGB signal.) See http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html .

Some laptops come with an HDMI, mini-HDMI or a DisplayPort option. For the latter two, you will need the appropriate cable with that end and the HDMI connector on the other. Then connect the TV and the computer as described above. (Note: my TVs accept a computer signal at the HDMI port labeled HDMI/DVI. However, you need to make sure that your TV understands this signal. It isn't the same format as that from a set-top box. My laptop has VGA and HDMI out; the desktops have VGA, DVI and HDMI (on one).)

If you add a comment with the model of your TV and laptop, I'll be glad to give you more specific options to connect the TV and the computer.

I hope this helps.

Get a component video cable (blue, green, red) and a separate RCA audio cable (white and red) if your cable box has a component video output and the TV has a component video input.

If your cable box doesn't have the component output, you will need a converter to go from the HDMI to component video. Something like this: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdmi-to-component.html . There are other converters available if your TV has some other inputs available.

A cable that has an HDMI M on one end and a VGA M on the other will not work. HDMI signals from the set top box are a digital signal. The VGA port on the TV is set to read an RGB analog signal. (Similarly a component to VGA cable would not work since the RGB and PbPrY are not compatible.)

I hope this helps.

I want to connect my computer to the pioneer sd-643hd5 tv so I can view movies, pictures etc; The tv only has pin connections, cable connection, s-video connection, and a RGB port for HDTV broadcasting....


depending on the connections available on your pc, you can get a vga to rgb cable fairly cheap but I am not sure on how good the quality will be, same with the s-video connection. vga connections on the pc are usually blue in colour, if you have dvi connection you can get a similar cable to do the job. Most computers will auto sense the tv if you connect the cables with the pc switched off, make sure you are on the right channel on the tv and the switch on the pc.

hope this helps

What do I need and how do I connect my Toshiba L305 model PSLB8 050302f to my hdtv to view online tv?


I dont believe that laptop has an HDMI port on it. If you have an LCD TV then your TV may have a VGA or DVI input on it. You can connect your laptop to the TV by using a VGA to VGA or VGA to DVI cable. If you your TV doesn't have one of these input ports, then you're not going to get your laptop connected to your TV.

WHAT TYPE OF CABLE DO I NEED TO CONNECT HP NC6400 LAPTOP TO HD TV TO WATCH MOVIE ON TV FROM LAPTOP? VGA TO HDMI CABLE? THANKS


Hi.

The best way is to get a s-video converter to connect your round s-video computer output to your HDMI port on your tv. This is the best you can do according to your laptop connections. You will need a s-video cable, HDMI upscale converter box and HDMI cable.

The other way is to plug a VGA cable to your tv VGA port if you have one.

VGA to HDMI is also possible with a converter. A standard VGA cable with a HDMI plug on the other side will not work because your computer sends out an analog video signal and HDMI is digital only.

Hope it helps!

We have a panasonic 32"inch lcd tv.we want to


hdmi Ports Qty 3 port(s) PC Interface VGA (HD-15) HDCP Compatible Yes

I read your tv has 3 hdmi ports and a PC input.

if your pc has hdmi out - the you use a hdmi cable from the pc to the tv on one of the hdmi inputs.

if your pc has a 15pin vga cable you can unplug from your PC monitor (or go buy a VGA cable if you want to keep one on the tv and one on your pc monitor - or if you are using a laptop).

when you unplug the computer from the monitor .. check the pins - should look to be about 15 pins in the connector. it that will plug into the tv- then you are using a vga cable. if it will not plug into the tv pc input .. don't force it. It could be a dvi connector . .take the cable off the PC and to radio shack and they can fix you up (you need a dvi to vga cable - not likely, but possible)

I always turn off a pc before disconnecting monitors - and plug into the other display before turning the pc back on.

Good luck.
Bill.

use a vga to dvi or a vga to vga connector lead from the back of your notebook, to the tv dependong on your tv connection inputs, although you will only get 720i not 1080i as you will need a notebook with an hdmi port for that resolution.
