    What do you mean you can't view high definition on XPS one? XPS One is a computer...



    You can't compare an HDTV with a HD computer LCD screen.

    If you right click on the desktop, go to properties, and click on settings, TRY TO move the resolution settings all the way left. So that you would have less pixels. THEN you would see the difference between HD and no HD :)

    I've always wondered the same thing myself. I've got a laptop with an "HD" screen but I've never noticed any major difference between that screen and my normal lcd.

What does the HDMI jack surrounded in orange on the gateway dx4720-01h do?


This is the HDMI interface on the Motherboard. You should be able to easily connect an HDMI cable between this jack on the PC and a display that offers and HDMI input to see and hear the content on the TV.

You *may* need to either remove the video expansion card (not likely) or select the On Board HDMI video and audio in the PC's setup or BIOS pages. Failing to switch the audio from analog to the digital HDMI output will have the audio play through your current speakers instead of the TV.

Linked below are spec on your machine, in it it says:

HDMI
Enjoy the next generation of viewing today with this system's High-Definition Multimedia Interface, which allows a single cable to transmit uncompressed high-definition video to your digital TV or LCD. Result: The smoothest, sharpest images you've ever seen.

Can not hook up to my Toshiba TV what cord do i need in order to make it work


Since this model of All-In-One Computer already has a built-in Digital/Analogue Television Function, as part of its standard specification, I will assume that your reason for wanting to interconnect these two devices is that you want to export computer, internet or other IT-based multimedia images to the TV for an enhanced viewing experience due to the TV's larger screen size.

The All-in-one computer has a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) Port.

If the TV also has an HDMI port, what would be required is the best quality HDMI Cable that the User can afford.

All electrical/electronic interconnections between cables and ports suffer some degree of degradation or dissipation of the signal traveling along the cable. The most efficient metal for electronic connections is gold due to its comparatively high level of electrical conductivity compared to that of other metals used for electronic interconnections.

The best cable choice would therefore be a gold-plated HDMI Cable (see below).

If the TV has no HDMI port, an HDMI to Video Graphics Array VGA Cable Adapter or ([Victor] Radio Corporation of America - the inventors) RCA/PhonoVideo Cable Adapter between the HDMI Cable leading from the computer and the corresponding VGA or RCA/PhonoVideo port on the TV should resolve the connectivity mismatch (see images below).

Once connected, the TV Remote Control should be used to change the Signal Source Input from its automatic standard (Default) setting to PC Input:

Menu -> Source -> PC -> OK.

In the same boat. I've contacted Dell and gave him a good talking too. They sell the Kensington, advertised as compatible with XPS when it's not. It's false advertising and should refund you.

Laptop Multimedia Ports Info
video_out_imgpcmag.gif

Component Video Out: Connects a TV or HDTV to your notebook so you can view high-quality, high-definition video streaming from the notebook. This three-piece connection (color-coded red, blue, and green) is the best method for sending video from your notebook to an HDTV or anything that receives component video. This connection allows the chrominance (color) and luminance (brightness) portions of a video signal to be processed separately, thus producing higher-quality video than an S-Video connection. S-Video works similarly, but component video improves color accuracy even further by splitting the chrominance signal into two portions.
Composite In/RCA: Connects a gaming console or camcorder to your notebook, for viewing video or playing games on the notebook. Color-coded red, white, and yellow, composite video input uses standard RCA-style jacks to connect your notebook to receive video and audio signals from your TV, VCR, game consoles etc.
tv_tuner_imgpcmag.gif

TV Tuner/75-Ohm Coaxial: Connects a cable box, TV, or VCR to your notebook, so you can watch and record TV content on the notebook.
Sometimes called an Rf input, a 75-Ohm coaxial cable can carry video and stereo signals simultaneously. RF cable connectors (often called F-type connectors) screw onto the 75-ohm jack, are pushed onto it, or connect via a dongle that vendors usually supply.
spdif_imgpcmag.gif
S/Pdif/Dolby Ac3 Digital Out: Connects your notebook to speakers or a stereo receiver to play digital audio stored on the notebook. S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) is a standard audio-transfer file format, usually referred to as digital audio. This connection allows the transfer of audio without converting the signal to and from an analog format, which can degrade its quality. If you also have an S/PDIF In port, you can play digital music stored on an MP3 player through your notebook. The headphone jacks found on some notebooks double as S/PDIF Ports.
dvi_port_pcmag.gif
DVI: Connects a digital projector or LCD panel to your notebook to display in large format either video content or a PowerPoint presentation stored on the notebook. DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a multipin connection used for passing standard-definition and high-definition digital video signals. It's found on HDTV tuners, a growing number of DVD players, HDTV-ready televisions, and some computer displays. DVI-D is the type of DVI connection found on most home video gear and carries digital-only signals. DVI-I is used with some computer video cards and can pass both digital and analog video signals. Some TVs have DVI-I inputs for greater hookup flexibility. DVI connections transfer video signals in pure digital form, which is especially beneficial if you're using a fixed-pixel display like a plasma, LCD, or DLP TV.

firewire_port_pcmag.gif
Firewire/ I.Link 400/ 1394: Connects a digital camcorder or external hard drive to transfer (but not display) large files, such as MPEG video, to your notebook. Also known as IEEE 1394, this is an extremely fast (commonly up to 400 megabits per second), two-way digital connection used for plugging in Your DV camera or other peripherals (such as an external hard drive or optical drive) to your notebook. It is used in digital camcorders because it is one of the few connections capable of quickly transferring full-motion video.
s_video_in_pcmag.gif
S-Video In: Connects a digital camcorder to your notebook to display video stored on the camera on your notebook's screen. Also, if your VCR has an S-Video Out port, you can transfer your VHS tapes to digital format. S-Video inputs use a four-pin jack to receive video signals from camcorders, gaming consoles, TV, or any device that has an S-Video out port. the S in S-Video stands for separate: S-Video connections transmit the chrominance (color) and luminance (brightness) portions of a video signal along different paths, allowing them to be processed separately, though S-Video does not produce as vivid an image as component video. This is a common way to display content from a digital camcorder or any device that has an S-Video Out port. (Firewire also transfers data files from your camcorder to your notebook, but it can't display video in real time on your notebook.)
S-Video Out: Connects a plasma or newer TV to your notebook to display video content streaming from the notebook. The most common way to connect a TV to a notebook, S-Video Out uses a four-pin jack to send signals from your notebook to your TV or anything that accepts S-Video In.
