Trouble cloning display from computer

I am connecting to the tv using a VGA to Component cable from the computer output to the tv input. The display on the tv is just a black and white jumbled mess. Do I need to change the resolution seeting? I have played with the different resolution settings, but without success. I have tried to clone the display to the tv, no luck... I'm just asking if there are certain setting needed for this tv?

I want to connect my computer to sony wega triniton kvxr29m80 from the hdmi or vga port to the tv's component or 3rc ports. is it possible..i have tried the hdmi to component cable and it does not...


An HDMI to component video cable will not work. These are meant for projectors that work with computers and have only component in jacks.

You will need is a VGA to Composite video converter, VGA to component video converter or HDMI to component video converter. These translate the computer output to the input the TV will understand. Here are some VGA to component video converters: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html . (The exception is if your computer has a TV-out port. In this case, you need an adapter that looks like an S-video plug that will then have composite or component video jacks.) If you want to use the TV speakers, you will also need a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA audio adapter (either M and F/F for an RCA cable to the TV or F to M/M for a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) or cable (3.5 mm M and M/M RCA).


I hope this helps.

(A computer gives RGB output on the VGA cable; the TV reads PbPrY on the component video. Thus you need for the converter rather than a simple adapter. Similar communication differences apply on the HDMI signal.)

Conecting computer to view screen


Hello
Your JVC Tv has AV & Component video inputs only. No direct connection facillty with computer is there. Computers outputs VGA stream video. VGA stands for Vodeo Graphics Arrey. This video stream cannot be connected directly to your JVC set. There are sets, which have this facility, but your set have not.
If you want to connect this set to computer, you have to buy one converter [VGA to RCA out], from open electronic sparepart selleing shops at your town. It will not cost more.
If you have this converter, you can connect your computer directly to the VGA converter, using a VGA to VGA cable, and the output from the converter by RCA connecting wire to TV. In short, the converter will be in between TV and Computer.
VGA to Video converter will look somewhat like this. OK.

Can you hookup a computer to the sanyo ds32224


Yes, if you get the appropriate converter. You will need either a VGA to component video or VGA to composite video converter. Some of these are available here: http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html . Since the computer VGA port provides an RGB signal and the component video is a YPbPr signal, the converter is essential.

However, the cost of the converter may not be worth using this method when replacement monitors are fairly cheap. (Christmas sales had 19" LCD monitors for under $100 with VGA input.)

I hope this helps.

Can this be used as a monitor for a computer?


Hello
Sorry. The answer is you can't. Computers output comes as VGA [Video Graphic Arrey],or AGP [Advanced Graphic Protocol]; and it is not directly compactable with TV inputs. The computer outputs, Red_Green_blue and Horizontal and Vertical synchronisation signals seperatly through one VGA cable which goes into the monitor and there they gets processed and you see the image on computer monitor. Monitors are equipped with such circuits to process the same, whereas in the TVs there are not. Your TV is equiped with S-video connection and not have a VGA input connection.
You must buy a VGA to RGB converter for this purpose. It can be bought from the electronic market, and will have instructions and remote control of its own to control it. You must give the computers signal [VGA], to the input of that converter,with a [VGA to VGA] cable and from which the converter outputs R_G_B [Red_Green_Blue] along with an other output contains synchronisation signal, as described earlier, and will have directions in its manual where should it to be connected. Different converters have different confugurations for this connection, and it will be described in its manual. Ok.

No problem, wondering if I'm able to connect this TV to my laptop to connect to the internet and if so what do I need to do this.


Yes, you should be able to. You will need to buy a $20 adapter. Sewell Direct sells them, also Amazon.com. They are called VGA to RCA composite video converter. This will convert your laptop's VGA output to RCA composite video for connection to your TV yellow video input. Connect an audio cable from laptop's earphone output to the TV's RCA audio inputs (white and red) using a 3.5mm to RCA adapter cable available at Radio Shack for about $10. This will work. You can see everything that the laptop displays on the TV. You can even hookup a VCR to record it all.

I want to use my philips 29 PT8321as a monitor for my laptop


I think you need a VGA to Component Video Converter. You will need a VGA to VGA cable as well as the Component video cable and the converter box. One converter box: http://www.national-tech.com/specs/vga-to-component/40h1-50200.htm

You can check your video output specs: if your video driver can split the VGA signal into the different video components, then you just would need the component video to VGA adapter. (This is usually limited to working with projectors unless you have a higher-end stand alone graphics card.)

I hope this helps.

Will this support tv viewing through propr cables so I can use it as a monitor for my computer with vga to rca high resolution cables


Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Now, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.
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.
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.

How to run laptop through tv


G'Day mate!

In order to send the picture from any computer to a TV screen, you must have a VGA input on the TV. You can't output your computer signal using s-video, HDMI, or component cables because they aren't designed for computer use. If you have a VGA connection on your TV, then you can use a standard VGA cable. If your TV doesn't have one, unfortunately you're out of luck.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. I hope I've earned a positive rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

How to connect acer laptop to philips tv to use tv as monitor


If your TV has a VGA input you can connect the laptop using a standard monitor cable. If the TV has component video inputs, you can get an adapter cable with a VGA plug on one end and the appropriate RCA plugs on the other.

Without these inputs, you can't connect the laptop directly. You will need a converter to switch from the computer's VGA output to a standard video signal to feed to the TV. Here is a website with a sample converter. (I don't know this site. It's just one I picked from a Google search as an example.)

Why did you disconnect the chat session?

Anyways here are the detailed instructions for connecting a DVD recorder to a TV

  1. The first step to connecting a DVD Recorder to your TV is to determine what type of connection you want to make between the TV source (Cable, Satellite, Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV. This is usually determined by the outputs and inputs available on the DVD Recorder and the TV.
  2. If you have an older TV that only accepts RF (Coaxial) input, then you would connect the RF output (a coaxial cable) from your TV source (in my case a Cable Box) to the RF input on the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RF output from the DVD Recorder to the RF input on the TV. This is the most basic (and lowest quality) option for connecting a DVD Recorder to any TV.
  3. If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
  4. To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
  5. To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
  6. To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
  7. Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
  8. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
  9. If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
  10. If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
  11. If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.
