You need a TV tuner card to do that. There are no cables that connect TVs to USB 2.0 ports.

Want to get my pc on 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.

I have a HP m7570n. How do I use a flat screen tv as a monitor


This depends on the TV's available inputs. The Pavilion m7570n has only a VGA output in the standard configuration.

Thus if the TV has a VGA port, turn off the computer and the TV. Then connect a standard VGA (RGB or D-sub 15-pin) m/m cable between the computer and the TV. To use the TV speakers, connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cable between the computers Line-out (green speaker port) to the VGA audio in. Turn on the TV and set the input to VGA (with the Source or Input button on the remote or the TV). Then turn on the computer. Windows XP should find the correct resolution to work with the TV. (If you turn on the TV after turning on the computer, you may get an unsupported signal. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to restart the computer.) If it doesn't work, you may need to connect a different monitor and set the computer to a low resolution before connecting the TV and the computer.

If the TV only has composite or component video inputs, you will need a VGA to video converter (http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for example). A VGA to component cable will not work; those are for projectors that read an RGB input. TVs interpret YPbPr.

If you have added a video graphics card, you may have an HDMI and/or DVI port(s) on the card. In that case, check the specs of the TV. Some TVs will support HDMI or DVI-HDMI inputs from a computer. Others will not (since computer video signals are not the same as the signal from a set-top box). If you use a DVI-HDMI connector, make sure to use the HDMI port labeled for DVI and connect the audio cable as with the VGA connection. If you use an HDMI connection, you may need to set the sound properties to that of the HDMI port. (Find the control panel item for sound (under Hardware) and then select Manage Audio Devices. Set the Playback properties. If it doesn't work, use an audio patch cable.) Some TVs have RCA audio inputs for the HDMI-DVI connector. In that case, you will need a female 3.5 mm to RCA M/M adapter (if you use a 3.5 mm patch cable). There is a similar device if you want to use an RCA audio cable. You may need to enable the video ports on the graphics card before swapping monitors.

Some video cards have a TV out. In that case, connect the appropriate connector (should come with the video card). Then connect to the component, composite or S-video input on the TV.

Again turn off the TV and the computer before making any connections.

You will probably need to provide your own cables for must of these connection options.

I hope this helps.

What do i need to use t3500 to watch tv

    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.

  • 6

    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 connect a tv to my gateway computer


    Do you have an HDMI port in your computer? If you have, then it is easy to connect your computer to your tv making your tv an extended monitor in watching high definition audio and video.

    If you want to connect your tv to your computer and watch tv shows, you need to install a TV Tuner Card in your cpu through a PCI or PCIE Card. Once installed, at the back of your cpu, you will have a co-axial port or a compatible port to connect your tv to your CPU.
