You need a tv digital tuner card before you can watch tv on the pc, or you can get a DVB (freeview) dongle, what you can do however, is watch the computer on a HD TV

How do i connect my dell latitude D610 to my Ilo tv?


Computers have become all-out media centers, capable of playing movies, music, and video games and even of streaming live television. Modern computers also come with an assortment of ports and outlets that allow easy connectivity to other devices, including televisions. Today's HDTVs can display high-resolution images ideal for showing off the media available on your computer, and they're relatively easy to connect.

Determine which type of cable to use; it will depend on which ports both your computer and TV share. Older computers and TVs will only have S-Video or VGA ports. Ideally, your computer and TV will both have HDMI ports, which allows for high-definition video and audio transfer. Consult your owner's manuals for port identification before deciding on which cable to use. Connect the computer's video outlet, either HMDI, VGA, or S-Video, to the TVs corresponding video input. These will usually be on the back of the TV and will be clearly labeled. Turn on your TV and set it to the proper video channel, which will correspond with the type of cable you have used. Some TVs have multiple ports for the same connection. Just set the video channel to whichever port you have used--for example, "HDMI 1" or "HDMI 2." On your computer, right click on your desktop and highlight "Graphics Properties," prompting a submenu to pop up. Highlight and click "Output to TV." Your computer's images should now be displayed on the TV instead of the monitor.

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 can I hook up 2005 Mitsubishi LT-3780D with cable TV? Because in the back of TV looks more like computer's monitor, I can not connect it with a cable cord.,


Your LT-3780 LCD is only one part of a two-part television system. The LCD is the "monitor" and the HD-4001 "Media Center" is where the inputs and outputs are for the television. The HD-4001 was included with the LT-3780. They are connected together with an HDMI cable and a Serial Cable for communications. If you don't have the HD-4001, you can connect your cable box or DVD player directly to the LT-3780 with an HDMI cable. You will not have any means to connect more than one device at a time, as this feature was performed by the media center. You will also be unable to connect any S-Video, Composite, or Component devices, as these connections are only on the back of the Media Center.
