HDMI is goofy. Connect everything while it is off and then power everything up. That should take care of it after the first time you do it.

SOURCE: 42" pansonic plasma hdmi problem

if I understand your question properly.. its because your direct tv output doesnt broadcast in high def so its giving you the standard tv definition inputs which are RGB or Component.so you will lose picture quality cos its running at fewer lines or pixels. hope this helps

SOURCE: I am trying to connect my macbook pro computer to

On the MacBook, check the Displays pane in System Preferences to make sure the settings for the external monitor are correct. It's possible that the system is not recognizing the adapter or it has the wrong resolution setting, so it's not sending out any signal that the adapter can use.

Many of the better DVD players and high-end video game consoles use HDMI. You can use one of those as a test signal generator to check the TV.

You may get better results if you use a DVI-HDMI converter, although you would need to get the DisplayPort to DVI cable. This will avoid converting to analog VGA signals and back to digital again.

How to connect asus p1801-t to tv ?


This PC is equipped with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 2GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card. This means if your TV has an HDMI input connector you can directly connect the pc to the Tv with an HDMI cable and select the corresponding graphics monitor connection in the Display properties. Alternatively if your tv has only got a VGA input that can also be used from the PC and you can connect the speaker or headphone audio output to the audio input of the TV with a suitable 3.5 headphone to RCA adapter.

Trying to connect computer to tv through proview moniter, what cables are needed


This is something that you need to check yourself. There is no detail on which computer you want to use, what graphic cards are installed, etc...
Just check the back or side of your TV, I'm sure that it have at least one HDMI input. Now check your computer, if it have the same output (HDMI) then just get an HDMI cable. If your computer is equiped with VGA input, then use a regular VGA cable. I got no idea if you have a desktop or laptop.

How do i connect my hdmi cable from my ibuypower desktop to my sansung led tv?


Make sure the input on the TV is set to hdmi port 2. If it doesn't automatically view on the TV, you have to go into the graphics card adapter settings to set the view to an alternate monitor (your TV). Normally there's also a hotkey command as well (normally one of the F# keys) to switch between displays

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.

Go to "Sound" from Control Panel, or from right-click on the Desktop and then choose "Personalize" from the menu. Click "Playback" at the 'Sound' app, you should see "Speakers/Headphones" and "HDMI" codecs.
If "HDMI" is there, simply click on it and click "Set Default"
If you don't see "HDMI" right click on "Sound" and click on 'Show Disabled Devices" -- "HDMI" should appear. If "HDMI" is not there, you need to install the HDMI sound driver. HDMI has its own audio driver separate from the audio system of the computer ( Sigmatel, IDT, or Realtek ) . It is incorporated into the graphics card's driver, so first make sure you have the newest version of your graphics card driver. On models with Intel graphics the HDMI audio driver will appear in the Device Manager as "Audio device on high definition audio bus".

Hope this helps.

How to get display of CPU on TV


Im guessing you mean Computer to TV
If your TV has d-sub input you can connect straight from computer to TV.
If u use s-video and you have a graphics card that supports s-video, then you can do that. or you can have a composite connection which is not a very good quality connection.

Then "Chip" you are talking about is just a graphics card. A good graphics card should support composite, component, s-video, d-sub and DVI and rarely HDMI
