Hi hungvtst,

Depending on what kind of video you would like to "stream" (or transmit) there is a program called VLC Media Player you may download it for free. It will allow you to stream videos to many computers at once. Here's the guide on how to use VLC to start a Streaming Server.

That should put you in the right direction.

Regards,
-SHG

Dvi plug won't transmit sound to TV


DVI connections only transmit video not sound. You need either RCA (red & white connections) or headphone cable plugged from the PC to the TV.

How can i use dvi port


DVI stands for (D)igital (V)ideo (I)nterface.

DVI is a new form of video interface technology made to maximize the quality of flat panel LCD monitors and high-end video graphics cards. It is a replacement for the P&D Plug & Display standard.

you can connect high definition monitor , LCD projector , LCD T.V to a DVI port

There three kind of DVI connector
1. DVI-D (Digital)
2. DVI-A (Analog)
3. DVI-I (Integrated Digital/Analog)

DVI-D format is used for direct digital connections between source video (namely, video cards) and digital LCD (or rare CRD) monitors

DVI-A - High-Res Analog
DVI-A format is used to carry a DVI signal to an analog display, such as a CRD monitor or and HDTV

DVI-I - The Best of Both Worlds
DVI-I format is an integrated cable which is capable of transmitting either a digital-to-digital signal or an analog-to-analog signal, but it will not work transmitting a digital-to-analog or analog-to-digital signal.


How to Recognize These three types of DVI Cable
There are two variables in every DVI connector cable, and each represents one characteristic.

The flat pin on one side denotes whether the cable is digital or analog:
A flat pin with four surrounding pins is either DVI-I or DVI-A
A flat pin alone denotes DVI-D

The pinsets vary depending on whether or not the cable is single- or dual-link:
A solid 27-pin set (rows of 8) for a dual- link cable
Two separated 9-pin sets (rows of 6) for a single-link cable

Can the HP Pavilion 763n PC Desktop use a wireless router?


Your computer has a "built-in" 10/100BT network connection integrated on the motherboard but to go wireless you'll have to add either a PCI (internal) or USB (external) wireless network adapter to transmit/receive the signal from your wireless router. Think "walkie-talkie" here with the wireless router installed AFTER the modem (phone line outlet needed) located in a central area of your home and transmitting/receiving to the individual wireless network adapters that must be separately installed in each computer.

I am looking to purchase a new Dell computer. In


HDMI is digital and uncompressed signal while the above mentioned interfaces are analog. A digital source is translated into less precise analog signal in an analog interface. After that signal is sent to the television and then converted back into digital signal to display on screen. Due to this, some distortion of picture quality is caused at each translation. HDMI removes the analog conversion and preserves original signal and delivers richest, sharpest picture. Separate audio signals are required by other video interfaces. Due to large amount of bandwidth available in HDMI, it not only transmits video but audio channels up to eight digital audio channels can also be transmitted through HDMI. The entire process becomes simple because a number of wires are replaced by a single wire. It also delivers much better performance.
The HDMI “Type B” have 29 wires while standard HDMI or “Type A” has 19 wires. Motion picture industry and other professional applications use “Type B” HDMI wires. HDMI enabled components talk to each other via an interface that is why it is also called Intelligent HDMI. All-in-one functionality of remote and other interoperable features are provided by HDMI but not by other technologies.
High-Definition and enhanced video and other standard formats are supported by HDMI. Backward compatibility with DVI (Digital Video Interface) is also supported. DVI/HDMI cable can be used to connect HDMI interface in high-end graphic cards that have DVI port. DVI/HDMI cable has HDMI connector at one end and DVI connector at the other. Another point to note is that degradation of signal can occur if the length of the HDMI cable exceeds 5 meters (15 feet).
At least one HDMI interface was provided in many high-end televisions since 2005. Two HDMI interfaces provides more flexibility and three might be better in cases where one wants to connect a game console. As the TV industry installs HDMI interfaces into more peripheral components, multiple interfaces will become common on TVs.

It is good to have it.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Hp w2007 why does the computer go pink everything that is green is now black


All the colours on the screen are created by "mixing" the 3 "primary" colours (red, blue, green).

Once the production of "green" ceases, anything that should be "100% green" becomes "100% black",
and every colour that indicates some percentage of "green" becomes a mixture of just RED and BLUE, i.e., various shades of PINK.

First, try the monitor on another computer (desktop or laptop). If the problem persists, it's time to replace the monitor. If the problem vanishes, it's the video-card in your computer that is not generating GREEN, or it is the "data" cable between your monitor and your computer that is not transmitting the GREEN request. So, you can try replacing the data-cable, or try replacing the video-card.

Te power button blinks when i turn it on, monitor says no signal


you can test if your monitor is the problem by simply replacing monitor for known good or installing the suspicious monitor to a known good tower. replace monitor if found to be the problem.

now, first make sure you have the data cable gong from your monitor to your video adapter (on your pc) properly attached.

if data cable is properly attached...

that means that your video card has likely failed to the point of no being transmitting any data signals to monitor, ergo the message that you get.

replace the video card for known good video card, price is about 20 - 150 dollars.

I have an E-machine. I lost all red in my computer. I tried to restore it and it worked for a couple of minutes and then went back to having no red. What can this be and how do I fix it?


Several possibilities:

1. the video-cable between your computer and your monitor is loose (at one end) -- tighten it;

2. the video-cable is "kinked" and is not transmitting end-to-end -- replace it;

3. the video-adapter in your computer is failing to output 1 of the 3 "primary" colours -- buy a new video-adapter, and install it;

4. your computer monitor is faulty -- try connecting the monitor to a laptop computer, to see if it works correctly; if you still have the problem, you need to repair/replace your monitor.

Computer monitor comes on for 1 seconds, flashes "analog power save mode" and then goes black.


Most monitors will say "Power save mode" when they can tell through residual voltage that the signal lead is plugged into a machine, but there's no picture being transmitted. The four states of a monitor are:

* Off entirely.
* Switched on, plugged into a computer but no video signal being received - usually displays "analog power save mode" or "digital power save mode" for a few seconds, then blanks. Comes back to life the moment a video signal is received. This state is the default in full power saving mode.
* Switched on, not plugged into a computer. Some monitors don't display anything, some go into power saving mode, some fly "CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" or a similar message around the screen. Picture is restored when the signal cable is plugged back into the computer
* On fully, receiving an image, and displaying.

Hope this helps.

When i turn monitor on it comes up with vga input no input signal


Hi nobumsteers,

This is most often caused by your VGA cable becoming detached from either the back of your computer or it's connection to the back of the monitor. First, check by unplugging both connections and re-attaching them firmly back into both ends.

If it still displays the no input signal error, then most likely your computer's video card is not transmitting signal to the monitor. So we need to make sure that the video card is working.

If your blue connection in the back of the computer is located near all of the rest of the cables (very close proximity, less than 1 inch apart) then you are using an 'on-board' video card. If you purchase a new video card and place it in one of your lower, available PCI or PCI-Express card slots in your computer and connect your VGA cable to that, you should have video again. But this would be a solution to a defective on-board video card, which if it is still under a warranty should be repaired by your Manufacturer.

Hope that helps.
