You should have an S video port on both tv and computer.

If your tv don't have s video input,you can get an S video to RCA cord.
If the tv does have s video input,just get an s video cable and plug it into the tv and computer's S video ports and follow the steps below for setup.


1. Connect the "S-Video to RCA" cable or the "Pro S-Video to 3 RCA" cable to the "S-video out" of the computer and to the "video in" (yellow RCA jack) on the TV. NOTE: This step must be performed before you start up the computer. Make sure that your TV is set to "recognize" the RCA/yellow video-in jack; you may have to play with the "aux 1", "aux 2", or "line-in" selections on the TV or the TV's remote control. The S-Video jack on your computer may be a 4-pin or 7-pin jack that is usually on the back of the computer.

Windows XP:

- Click on Start, Control Panel.

- Click on Display

- Click on Settings

- Slide the "Screen resolution" area slider bar toward Less until the setting reads 800 x 600. OK, you may not like how your screen looks at this setting after usig high-res settings, but you'll certainly enjoy your DVD on your TV!!! You can always change the res back when not playing DVDs.

- Click Apply

- Press the FN key and your computer's corresponding "F-number" key. For instance, on some Toshiba laptops you press the FN+F5 or FN+F7 simultaneously four times to get the TV-Out setting. The "FN" key is a short-cut key on most laptop keyboards. Note, the combination keys that you may have to press depend on your laptop.

- Start playing your movie or presentation.

- There may be additional adjustments that may be required. If the TV display is shifted to the right with a black vertical bar on the left side you will have to perform additional settings. "The computer runs Windows XP Pro and has a "Radeon IGP 345M", Under 'Display Properties', 'Settings', 'Advanced', 'Displays', click the "TV" button, then 'Adjustments' tab. There you will find options to change the vertical/horizontal size and position. Once you have switched over to use the tv you can simply adjust these settings while you watch the display on the television to get it looking the way you like."

Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows Me, or Microsoft Windows 2000:

NOTE: To use the TV as the primary display with the dual display function, you need to enable the TV setting every time you start your computer.

2. Click Start, point to Settings, select Control Panel, and choose Display.

2.1 Under the Display Properties window, ensure that the color depth is set to High Color (16bit)

2.2 Click Advanced Properties under the Settings tab; this brings up the ATI or SAVAGE video card features.

2.3 Click on the Display tab; this gives you the output options.

2.4. If you have an ATI video card the "Displays" tab gives you the output options. If the TV is detected, it shows the power button on. The button next to that gives you adjustments for the picture, kind of like those to center the view on your monitor. On the bottom are some blue buttons.

2.5 Make the TV the primary display and the monitor secondary. The default settings on the rest of the adjustments may not need to be changed.

To make the TV the primary display you have to select "monitor 2" (you do that by selecting monitor 2 with the mouse" and then "moving it" to the left of "monitor 1". By switching the position of the monitors in your display settings you effectively make the monitor on the left the primary monitor.

Videos and mpegs play on an "overlay" method and can only play on one monitor at the same time, thus, you have to decide which monitor you want the video overlay to play in...and since the idea is to watch the video on your TV, you thus have to make the TV the primary monitor.

2.6 If you have the SAVAGE graphics card you need to do the following on the display tab - go to the settings tab. There's a drop down menu with 2 monitors, select the first one. Click on the advanced button. There's a tab titled "s3 duo vue". Choose that tab, and click on the tv option. If you do not follow these steps you'll get a message from the savage image card control stating "You must activate the tv first." NOTE: To use the TV as the primary display with the dual display function, you need to enable the settings every time you start your computer.

3. Click OK to close window.

3.1 Click OK to apply the changes

NOTE: The S-Video to RCA Adapter must be attached to the unit or the TV option will be grayed out.

4. When the DVD player was showing the movie, the TV will display it, but the monitor window will be black unless you have dual display capability on your computer.

5. Your TV may just happen to be able to support the 1024 x 768 pixel resolution that the computer may be set to, however, if you lower the resolution to 800 x 600 the movie will probably play much smoother without any noticeable drop in picture quality.

6. Video Formats. You need to make sure that the video format selected on your computer is the same as the video format required for your television. There are some computers that are sold in the USA with PAL-B as the default video format; you need to change it to NTSC-M for TVs in North and South America. There are basically three television video formats, NTSC, PAL and SECAM. NTSC is used in Canada, Japan (NTSC-J), USA, Mexico, Central and South America. PAL is used in most European Countries, Australia and New Zealand. SECAM is primarily used in France and the old soviet republics.


Remember that your monitor's VGA resolution and TV resolution is measured differently since they are different standards and were meant to be seen at different distances. If "pixel resolution" was used to measure TV (NTSC) video then the approximate resolution of a regular TV would be 448x480. Your TV does not need to have higher resolution since it was not meant to be seen as close as your monitor. Regular TV was meant to be seen from a viewing ratio (viewing distance to picture height) of 4-to-1. An HDTV usually has a larger screen size and thus requires higher resolution, since the viewing ratio is about 3:1. You may have to re-arrange your TV viewing distance if you get an HDTV - since it's not going to look good if you just plop it in the same spot as your analog TV; you have to adjust the viewing distance.

Connected my laptop to sony wega tv using hdmi but get no sound on tv


HDMI is prone to this--If you connected with the set (TV) on you may have caused this issue.

In our shop we get a lot of this and if a box was being used (cable HDMI) the box needs to be rebooted.

I would at least try unplugging the TV from power--wait and try to boot it up again(set with power disconnected and then powered again will try).

Restart the laptop, with the cables (HDMI) REMOVED AND THEN INSTALLED AGAIN BEFORE YOU APPLY POWER TO THE SET.

This may or may not help but is worth trying.

Failing this it may be a setting in the laptop or a mismatch between the two units.

Message of Unsupported video signal after attaching laptop to TV.


it sounds like the resolution the laptop is trying to send is not one of the resolutions that the television can display. TVs can display a range of resolutions, so try changing the laptop resolution, either increasing it (make the pixels smaller) or lower the resolution, try a variety of resolutions, one should work.

Hooking up sony tv to HP laptop


Do you have a HDMI jack on your TV? it looks just like the blue/graphics/monitor jack on your laptop. If so use it to connect and you should be able to use your tv as a monitor. (if you tv came with the HDMI cable?, if not you can purchase one ez enough from Radio Shack)

Check your users manual for directions on how to use the remote to get it to that function. My Hansphree TV I have to put it on AUX to use my laptop hooked to it and see my TV as my lappy monitor.

Hope this helps you and others! Good Luck.

How to conect my laptop to Niko tv ?


Hi,

Initially, it is required to determine what video out is available from your laptop. Most laptops have the standard 15pin VGA out as a secondary video port. Still others have a single yellow RCA for composite video output or an S-video output and some newer ones have DVI and/or HDMI. Thereafter, you need to determine what king of INPUT connection would be acceptable by your TV. Most TVs have the single yellow RCA for composite video input or an S-video input. Some high ends have VGA, component, DVI and/or HDMI. As soon as the common connection point has been established, the appropriate cable has to be sourced. it will also be necessary to determine the maximum screen resolution of the TV so as to set the Display Properties/Screen Resolution of the laptop to match that of the TV. Often to enable the external video/TV, the Fn + F? keys on the laptop must be pressed several times to cycle on LCD display only, LCD + TV, TV only. The F? key on the laptop would be the function key with the smaill monitor icon.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
