Question about HP Media Center m7250n (ED842AA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Can't find where to get the input from red/white/yellow cables

I'm trying to find where i can see the input from the red/white/yellow set of input cables to be able to play my PS3 with internet connection.

I'm trying to get my HP Media Center PC m7250n to show input from my PS3 because I can't find a way to hook it up directly to the monitor, and don't want a tv in my den, but still want internet connection and can't get that anywhere else in the house. so, I have the regular red/white/yellow audio/video input cable hooked to the front of my pc and it doesn't want to show me what's being inputted.

    the problem seems to be with media centre, as there is no way of changeing the input, the tv tuner normally has software of its own.

    if you have a look for that. then you should be able to select the composite video input...



    hope this helps

How to connect a PC to a TV.


At the rear or side of the PC there should be either or both of a 15 Pin DIN Plug, HDMI socket. or a Yellow RCA or 4 -7 pin DIN. Now IF these are present then YES you can connect to a TV. Now some TV's have a connector a DB15 MALE, so that the cable from the PC to the TV, is DB15. this plugs in directly, with appropriate DB15 cable. This, however, will ONLY take the VIDEO to the TV, Audio is delivered via the "Audio Out" Jack on PC, and Plugged into the AV Sockets on the TV, with a dual cored coaxial cable, they are Red & White. Some PC's also have a Yellow RCA Connector, OR a 4 -7 Pin DIN Socket, that requires a Special Adapter Cable (That generally came with the unit, and are colored and marked as to output) to use, for Video/Audio Out to TV. This signal is Composite or SVHS Video & Stereo Out. This connects up TO the TV's Composite/SVHS input Jacks and the Red & White Audio IN, RCA Jacks, &/or DIN SVHS socket. Also we have "Component Video" marked "Y" "Pb" & "Pr" these simply go color to color at BOTH ends, this is where the Red, Green, & Blues, colored Ends, of the Wires, goes, remembering that this is ALL only Video. With this method, you still must use the AV, red & White, Audio, Inputs to get the "Sound" into the unit
First you need to know if your PC can output to a TV. Then you need to get the adapter & cables that connect the PC to the TV. Then you need the correct TV drivers installed for your video card. When they are all installed, you need to "Enable" that Monitors, the TV's, Desktop. You need to set either a "Cloned" display or "Spanned, Extended Desktop". Go to "Display Settings" Now ensure the TV/Monitor connected has the correct input/output display settings. Adjust the screens resolution via the resoloution "Slider", it is best to start with, 800x600 32 bit color. or even lower. and once working OK, THEN increase to max resolution, your TV can handle, find out from manual. Once it is all connected up. It should all just work great. Now, from then on, &, to get it to work every-time, the process is. Turn everything OFF. Connect the leads between PC & TV, Turn the TV, ON. Then, startup the PC up. It should "Detect" that it has TWO "Monitors" ie: One Monitor & One TV/Monitor, & you should see your desktop appear after a bit. Now you have screen 1 & screens 2. Now, if you are using "Cloned" mode, then whatever is displayed on the Master monitor, will be displayed on the TV. If you used Spanned, mode, in this mode, however, you will have to."Drag" the Video window, over to the TV, and it is though, you have one "Big Desktop". Now IF using Nvidia or ATI then BOTH of those have thier OWN, Control Panel, this, all then can make it all a lot easier to do it. So I would suggest that this method be used. But if you get stuck, or just want to do it by hand, then the the "By Hand" method is the only way.There is a great program called MultiMon, this allows great control over dual displays, and is well worth installing.

My dell inspiron 530 shows a block with red, white, green, and read, can't get to the my programs????


That "red white green and blue" block is a color pattern tester. that means the monitor is on, but is not receiving a signal, so its running tests. If your monitor has Digital input and VGA input, you may just need to switch inputs. Look for 1 or VGA if youre using the blue hook up. look for 2 or digital or dvi if youre using the larger white hook up. Some monitors also have 'auto detect'. If you are in "auto detect' bbut the color box is still there, then your monitor is not receiving video signal from the computer. It could indicate a bad cable or no signal being sent by the machine. If you try another monitor, you can see if the machine is working. I would try a monitor setting for VGA-1 first, since thats most common.

Where are the video and audio outs on my pc


The easiest and cheapest way is to purchase a cable called VGA to RCA below is the picture of it. You will connect the vga end to your computer where the computer monitor would plug in at. Then you will need a rca cable and run the yellow end from the vga to rca cable to the yellow input on your tv. Then you will have 2 cable left a white and red one, Then you will need to purchase a headphone to rca chord which is also shown below and you will plug that into where your speakers on the computer are plugged into (Usually the green spot) and then connect the white and red cable to it and then to the back of your tv. Once all that is setup then just turn on your computer and your tv and set you tv to the correct video input and your computer will be on your tv. Hope this helps you.843da49.jpg

I have no video player (as funny as that might sound) at home. I have a JVC GR-FX220A cam corder. The only means to tranfer a video I shot is through my Packard Bell imedia mc 2770. This I have never done...


Yellow: video.
White/Red: left/right audio to/from a "stereo" device.
White: audio to/from a "mono" device, such as the single microphone inside your cam-corder.

Connect yellow-to-yellow.
Connect white-to-white.
Tell the software on your PC that the input is "mono" (not "stereo"), so that it will "replicate" the single audio-input onto both "stereo" channels.

Composite connection on Gateway Desktop


They are Video and Audio for connecting device together
  • Yellow = Video
  • White = Audio - left channel
  • Red = Audio - right channel
the connectors on a Desktop PC from the graphics card will be an OUTPUT-possibly labelled TV output, so what ever is displayed on your monitor can also be sent to a TV or recorder etc The connectors on the Xbox are also OUTPUT and designed for connection to a device which has the same connection but for INPUT
Your monitor may have composite inputs and allow you to switch to those Some TVs will have those connections as inputs and you would select one of the AV options to see the signal, often a separate button to choose AV input /HDMI / PC etc Some DVD and Video also have these as an INPUT as video cameras often have that type of connection - to record the signal

What are the outputs of the varios plugs & sockets of a Delta Electronics power supply model SMP-420BB when supplied with 230 volts AC input


Forget about the individual plugs. Concentrate on the wires.

The Delta SMP - 420BB is just another
Switched Mode Power Supply.

(SMPS shortened to SMP by Delta. I'm speculating here, but I'll bet the 420 stands for 420 Watts)

No matter what the input voltage is, the SMPS will only put out three main voltages.

1) Wires with Yellow insulation are 12 Volts
2) Red wires are 5 Volts
3) Orange wires are 3.3 Volts

ANY Black wire is a Ground wire.

For example:
1) 4-pin white Molex power cable.
1 - Yellow wire
1 - Red wire
2 - Black wires

(4-pin Molex power cable is also referred to as a Peripheral power cable)

Here is more in-depth info about the various power connectors, and power cables, used in a personal computer,

Tv tuner card in a hp m7434n


The white cable bundles (there are several) are for the front USB, Firewire, Analog Video and Audio cabling - none of what are required for your HDTV Tuner. The connections on the front of the HP Media Center allow for analog input (yellow, red and white RCA connectors) and some of the white wire bundles are for analog input (not on all HP PCs). Hope this helps...

DVI to RCA3 AV OUT


DVI to Composite Video (yellow) adapters are available in many online stores for mail order. You will need to get a separate mini-RCA jack to stereo RCA adapter to hook the audio output from the computer to the stereo audio (red and white) connections of the cable.

Search google for DVI to composite video adapter, and the mini-RCA adapter can be found at most home entertainment or electronics stores (Best Buy, Circuit City, etc)
