If you open the Radeon software utility, in the advanced screen settings you should be able to set "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" to on for the TV screen. Then all you have to do is open your video player software and drag its window across to the tv, then maximise it. If you are having trouble doing this, some video player programs, especially dvd players playing dvds will not show the picture on the tv. If you want to watch .avi files then the best free player around at the minute is DivxPlayer - go to http://www.divx.com to download. Hope this helps, please ask again if not :)

    p.s. you will also need a separate arrangement for the sound unless you want to just play it from your pc speakers, as S-video carries only the picture.

    P.P.S. If you set "extend my desktop..." to off, then the tv should have an exact copy of your desktop with all the icons etc.

How to Connect Laptop to Projector

How to display computer image on TV or projector
How to display a computer image on a TV or projector All modern televisions and projectors have one or more ports which allow them to receive and display an image generated by a computer. Both desktop and laptop computers are capable of connecting to a TV or projector, provided that they have the appropriate cables. The following sections contain instructions for using your TV or projector as a computer monitor. For best results, we recommend reading them in order.
Identifying available connections
Connecting computer and projector or TV
Display using Desktop
Display using Laptop
I don't see an image on my TV screen

Identifying available connections The first step in connecting your computer to a TV or projector is finding an identical port on both machines. Once the matching port has been identified (one that is the same on both your input device and output device), you need the appropriate cable to connect them. This section contains a picture of the back of an Epson projector and its available connection ports; as well as descriptions of each.



find-connect-projector-option-vga-hdmi-zonwsocbr3qazne24mugrpvs-1-0.jpg
HDMI
The HDMI connection is very popular among display electronics. In fact, nearly all modern televisions and projectors feature HDMI ports. Most laptop computers support HDMI and it is becoming more prevalent on both desktop as well; even without a high-end video card. HDMI is quickly becoming the standard for all electronic equipment for its high quality signal and ability to carry both audio and video signals. The image to the right is that of an HDMI cable.


find-connect-projector-option-vga-hdmi-zonwsocbr3qazne24mugrpvs-1-1.jpg VGA
The VGA connection is the most common among both desktop and laptop computers, is found on most projectors, and some TVs. The VGA cable has a 15-pin connector on each end that plugs into a VGA port on each device. Due to the fact that most televisions do not support VGA, we recommend using HDMI for their wider range of compatibility.


find-connect-projector-option-vga-hdmi-zonwsocbr3qazne24mugrpvs-1-2.jpg Tip:VGA cabling is universal for devices that support it. For example, the if your desktop monitor that uses a VGA cable it, that same cable can be used by a laptop to connect it to a projector.
Note: If you are using an Apple desktop or laptop you need a VGA adapter to connect a VGA cable to the computer.

DVI
The DVI connection is newer than VGA and it offers a sharper image. Although the DVI port is not shown on the Epson model above, it is still somewhat common for projectors, not so much for televisions. It is mostly found among desktop computers for monitors, but some laptops have DVI connections as well (Apple laptops are more commonly known to support DVI than any other brand of laptop). Since finding DVI on a TV or projector is more difficult, we again recommend using HDMI cables.
Tip: There are special cables that convert from DVI to VGA or DVI to HDMI and vice versa.


find-connect-projector-option-vga-hdmi-zonwsocbr3qazne24mugrpvs-1-3.jpg
Composite Video
The composite video connection is quite common on a TV or projector, but it is nearly nonexistent on modern computers. This connection is the yellow female cable on what is normally a three bundle of red, white, and yellow. The only time you should see this setup is on older video cards for desktop computers.
S-Video
The S-Video connection is also commonly found on TVs and projectors, but solemnly on a desktop or laptop computer. This connection is a small step up from composite video, but is nearing obsolescence.

Connecting computer and projector or TV After you've identified what connections are available on both your computer and TV or projector, you're ready to connect the cables. If the same connections are not available for both the computer and TV or projector, you'll need to purchase a video converter cable that converts one signal into a compatible signal.

Desktop Computers For a desktop, you simply need to plug the cable into the computer and output device. If you don't see an image, you may need to change the display using the following steps.
  1. Press the Windows Key.
  2. Type Adjust screen resolution and press Enter.
  3. Find Display and click the down arrow on the right-hand side of the box.
  4. Select the appropriate output device.
  5. Click Apply then OK.

Laptop Computers If you're connecting a laptop computer to a TV or a projector you'll often need to "send" the video signal to the display device. The key sequence to do this varies depending on the laptop; but usually it's either: Fn + F3, F4, F5, F8, or F9. For example, pressing and holding Fn + F3 at the same time on my laptop sends the video signal to my connected TV instead of the laptop's screen. The corresponding key used with Fn may be labeled as CRT/LCD or have a picture of a monitor on or close to the key. Additional help and information with switching the laptop display can also be found on the link below.
Switching TV inputs Finally, if you're connecting a computer to a TV make sure it has been switched to the correct input. For example, if you connected an HDMI cable to your computer and the "HDMI 2" port on your TV, you'll need to switch to the "HDMI 2" input. This action can be accomplished by pressing the input button on your TV remote until the correct image is displayed.

Have a new tv how do i get connected to my old computer


to hook the computer to the tv you do not need a disk ..basically you need to have a pretty good video card on computer so that it will have a hdmi video out ..and this way it will work on hdmi ..or if it has a tv slot ..use it ..and select the proper input on the tv ..
If there is no image on the tv ...you have to go to the video settings ..and select to enable the secondary monitor or tv out..
for some computers you can do this by pressing Fn and F5 or F4 or F7 ..(or ctrl = f....) ..and will enable it auto ..but ..it is best to make sure you have teh correct driver for the video card ..and after the connection being made with the cable ..and select the correct entry in the tv ...just go to the video card settings ..or click right on desktop ..and select properties and than display settings ..or ..settings ..and on the page where it shows the monitors..click on the secondary and enable it ..and select the way it will work ..(clone or extend display ..second one will make the monitor an extension and you can select different tasks for the space )

I want to know if I can hook up a second monitor to this system?


The HP Pavilion a450n video card does not support 2 monitors. You can hook up a monitor and a TV at the same with the current video card it has. If you wanted 2 monitors you can replace the AGP video card with a new one that has 2 monitor outputs. You will need to get an AGP video card with 2 monitor outputs (DVI or VGA), open up the case, remove the current video card and replace it.
See the HP website for more technical information on this computer:

    Determine what kind of video line-in connection the TV has. These connections are typically on the back or side of the TV. You also will need to determine what kind of video line-out connection the computer has.

    Types of video connections include S-Video, VGA, DVI and HDMI. The Resources section of this article offers links to sites that will help you identify the connection type of your TV and computer.

  • 2

    Purchase a video connection cable that is for the type of connection that the computer and TV share. For example, if the TV and computer both have S-Video ports, you should purchase an S-Video cable. S-Video connections are the most common and least expensive option.

  • 3

    Connect the end of the S-Video cable that matches the connection on the computer to the computer video line-out port. Connect the other end to the video line-in port of the same kind on the TV.

  • 4

    Convert video from VGA video to S-Video or even component video. Do this if the two connection ports on the computer and TV are not compatible. You will need to purchase a scan converter box, a VGA video cable, and either an S-Video or component video cable. Connect the cable that will connect to the computer jack to the computer and the converter box, and connect the S-Video or component video cable to the TV and the converter box.

  • 5

    Turn on the TV and use the remote control to select "Input." Some TVs will have multiple selections. Turn on the computer and play a movie or display an image on the screen. As you are scrolling through the "Input" options on the television, you will see a matching image of what you opened on your computer on the TV screen when the correct input is selected.

    Adjust the screen resolution on the computer if the image on the TV is distorted, too small or too large. Do this by going into Control Panel and Display Settings on the computer. Select a different screen resolution until the image on the TV fits the TV screen

    How do I get my PC video signal to my TV. I s there a way with a wireless router and how will that be connected to my TV. Thank you.


    Hi, you can use basic video cables to get your TV to act as a monitor. It depends on which ports your computer and TV have. You can use an S-video cable, a serial cable (with the blue connector that many monitors use), an HDMI cable, or a DVI cable. If both your computer and your TV both have any of these same ports, all you need is the cable and you can have your TV receive video signals from your computer.

    Hope that helps!

    I have a Dell Desktop , bought a cable to hook it up with my tv, also using a hd15 vga splitter, when I hook the wire going to the tv my computer monitor says cannot display video mode 1280by1200...


    You just need to lower the screen resolution thats all.

    You don't need a TV tuner card but you do need to adjust settings for your graphics card.

    If its NVIDIA then use the DUALVIEW For ATI there is a similar thing but I don't use ATI so you would have to figure that one out yourself.

    I have a HP a705w desktop and I am trying to hook to a TV


    You don't say which graphics card (many people change the stock card)

    Your best bet is if your card has S-VIDEO out.
    Only use a good quality cable as many of the s-video cables are just not up to the job.

    There are also VGA to COMPONENT cables about. Experience shows that this does not work as well as should be expected as it too has a pretty high chance of failure to analog tv.

    There is a 50/50 chance of it not working with analog. That figure changes dramatically with flat panel tv

    Why won't my tv display my computer screen


    Hi. The best way to hook your computers display to your LCD screen will be to use the VGA input socket. If your video card can support both S-video input and VGA, you can use either one but, the VGA is best for optimal resolution. This is the easy way to do this. Step one, connect the VGA cable to the computers video card and then, run the other end of this same cable to the VGA input slot on the LCD screen.Step 2, next you will make sure that the LCD's input selection is selected to show what is being transferred from the CPU video card by using the input button on the lcd remote control. The lcd(your tv) should be on VGA or PC input signal. Step 3, now, you Will have to also make sure that your video card is set to transfer this signal as well by pulling up your video cards software window and switch to the proper options. once this is done, you should get a signal. Be sure to use the VGA input/output ports on both the lcd television and your cpu for optimal transfer of the video stream. Here is a pic of your back panel. use the input port labeled I for good PC input quality.

    Try to connect tv as a monitor


    Does the desktop have an S-video output on its video card? If it does, you only have to get either an S-video cable and hook it up from the computer to the TV, or get an S-video cable plus an S-Video to composite adapter, and hook it up.

    For the video card to output to S-Video, you may need to fiddle with something in the control panels, or unplug the regular monitor and reboot (at least on my NVidia 5600 cards, this forces the card into using the S-Video output).

    Personally I think you will be very disappointed. Using normal computer applications while using your TV as a monitor will be basically impossible; the text will be too small and blurry. Web browsing on picture-and-headline type pages will be OK, but everything else? Instant headache. Most applications that are designed to be accessed via a TV screen instead of a TV monitor have huge font sizes and lots of contrast (cf. the TiVo's interface, for example); they're designed much differently than desktop apps. You may want to look into screen-magnification apps to make it easier on your eyes.

    regards,

    hope
