If your tv has vga in, then you need a vga to vga cable (like a screen wire) then change the resolution in the settings of windows (put 800X640 resolution before you plug tv so that you can know what is supported)

if it doesent then you cant do anything other than buying a video card with hdmi or dvi (with a dvi to hdmi) with a hdmi cable then plug it in (will auto detect)

Cable


The Toshiba 57H94 will receive basic cable ( at least in my Time Warner area ) without a cablecard. I am not sure if other cable companies lock out even basic cable. I've never heard of it. Good Luck.
