The easiest connection is converting to VGA and using a standard headphone port-to-audio in. Your video out from the laptop varies by model, which isn't included here.

It will most likely be mini-VGA or mini-DVI

What cable is needed to stream Netflix to a Macbook?


If you want to use a TV as a secondary or mirrored monitor. All you would need is a Mini-DVI to HDMI adapter. Use the adapter to connect an HDMI cable between your computer and the TV. Once connected you will have an option to use it as a secondary or mirrored (exact copy of what is on your laptop) monitor. If you have one of the newer macbook pros you need a Mini Display port to HDMI adapter.

May I Connect Apple 20" Cinema Display to orignal MacBook Air( does not have a Fire-Wire port)


Yes, you can do this. Firewire is not necessary. That is for connecting your hard-drives should you want to do it through your display.

Hi, When I connect my Samsung RF711 laptop to my Sanyo LCD-42XR9DA TV HDMI to HDMI, and source the HDMI 1 input and press OK I do not get any laptop display on the TV screen at all. I have spoken to both...


I suspect that the TV can't read the signal from the computer on the HDMI port. You would get a signal from a VGA connection. (Computers send a slightly different signal over HDMI than a DVD or blu-ray player.)

In general, when connecting a TV to a computer, turn off both devices before connecting the video cables. Then turn on the TV and set it to the source (with the no signal message). Then turn on the computer. Next set the computer to output the video on the external video port. (Depending on the laptop, you may need to enable the port in the BIOS. To access the BIOS, press Esc, F1, F2 or F10 repeatedly as you turn on the computer. The key depends on the brand of computer.) Next set the video output in the OS (depends on the OS). For Windows 7, right click on the desktop (anywhere there are no icons or running programs), select Graphics Properties and set the desired monitor choice (laptop monitor, external monitor, both or extended). Click Apply and then confirm this when the display changes. (At least this works for my HP laptop on the VGA port.; my desktop lets me change monitors under Screen Resolution.)

The manual for the TV is available here: http://www.sanyo.com.au/resources/manuals/tvs/lcd42xr9da_im.pdf .

I wish that I had better news for you.

I've connected my new Sony Blue-Ray Disk Player to my RCA F25645 TV via the three (Red, White, Yellow) composite cables but the screen only says "unusable signal" and will not display the Blue...


The output from the blu-ray is probably component video, where the brightness, blue and red difference signals are the three outputs. Sounds like the TV only has composite video input so won't work. Check the manuals, if you can get a composite signal from the blu-ray then your TV will display it but not high definition. A HD LCD or plasma TV is needed to show the blu-ray films in high definition.

Hello
There is no RGB connector input at the rear of your RCA tv. There is Video, Audio-L, Audio-R and S-video inputs. You won't get any response from your TV, if you connect the RGB connector to the above said audio video connections. You can connect the Blu-ray player with S-Video connector. After connecting it with specific S-Video cable to your TVs S-Video input and Blu-ray players' S-video output, assaign the input of your TV to S-Video, by going to its Menu, and sufing through it. OK.

I have connected my macbook to my tv using mini


Later MacBook (Pro) use a mini-DVI connector that does not pass analog needed for composite or S-video. Was yours ever working? And most DVI connectors do not pass sound as seen by your cabling. You cannot detect display through RCA. You just set it in Sys Prefs :: Displays, try some other settings, although your seem right.
I have a white early-2009 MacBook and mini-DVI to HDMI adapter (monoprice <$10) and HDMI cable and have not connected the TOS-link for sound, yet--just slideshows at 1920x1080. You will get a much better picture digitally. -Ken
