If you have no optional external speaker on the ps3 you may have an earphone socket which can be connected to your tv's pc sound input via a 3.5mm or 6.5mm jack plugs.

Using with a laptop


Connection the monitor depends on the connections you have out of your Toshiba laptop.

The monitor has both VGA and DVI.

If the Toshiba has a VGA out, all you need is a VGA cable available online, computer or electronics store.

If the Toshiba has an HDMI out, you can connect it to the DVI on the monitor with an HDMI cable and an HDMI to DVI Adapter.

You can also use USB out with either a VGA converter or a DVI converter (go with DVI for the better picture). Converters can be found online at Amazon, you may also need a standard male to male DVI cable to use with the converter.

Acer Aspire 5630 hook up to television


Your Acer laptop has a 15-pin VGA port on the rear. It may also have a S-Video and/or a DVI-D port. Any of these can be used to connect to a television monitor. None of these connections, however, supports the sound portion of the signal. You will therefore require two cables, one for the video, and one for the sound. The sound will be a regular 1/8" stereo jack on the PC side. You will need to look at the TV to see what types of connections it accepts. There may be HDMI, DVI-D, S-Video, or RCA connections. Select a cable which matches the connections for each end for both the audio and video.

Hi,
1. S-Video – This is probably the most commonmethod out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heckand just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll haveto make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there aretwo types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Mostlaptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only hasa 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA – If you have a HDTV, then you will bebetter off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better qualitythan S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usuallywon’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if youhave an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interfacewith “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give ahigher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, yourcomputer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to bean HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40to $80.
4. HDMI – Using HDMI will give you the best qualityby far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you canget a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatiblewith DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box – This is the last methodthat I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, whichtakes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
Here’s a graphic I created with some pictures of the various cables:

Hope this helps someone! If you have any other ideas or suggestions, please feel

What do I need to hook it up to an hdtv...what type of cables..DVI-D to HDMI?


Your laptop will need a HDMI output or a DVI output for HD video. If your laptop only has a VGA out the your tv will need a VGA or DVI input. You could use a vga to dvi adapter if your tv does not have a vga connector. They do have a DVI to HDMI adapter but there are a couple of problems with that. One you will not get the sound and the TV will only obtain sound from HDMI cable when connected that way and Two the TV will have problems processing the signal from the computer due to the HDMI will only process the HD signals at certain formats and the computer video can send out many different signals. I tried and I could not get my tv to process the signal so I got a video card that has a HDMI out and my blu-ray player works great.

Depending upon the video port/s you have on the graphics card, you need to connector one video cable, either the DVI or the 15pin DSub to the monitor.

Dude, the hdmi is just for the video signal, you'll have to use a separate audio cable to get sound from the integrated speakers.

It may be the top of set box.. Most times the sound and picture are auto detected by the set when HDMI is used. Both sound and video are carried in a HDMI cable but not with a S video cable. Try another HDMI cable *** dont buy the expensive one the tv don't care if they cost $125 or $25.

Philips 32' lcd hdtv


are you using a DVI to HDMI converter? Radeon cards older than x1*** series or roundabout didnt support hdcp on dvi which is required to run Hi-Def rez thru an HDMI cable on most TVs. A video card with hdmi prebuilt in or HDCP compliance listed on the box should be able to handle it. And you should find a resolution both your normal monitor and HDTV can handle to set the coimputer to before you switch it over to the HDTV to be sure it will still show you picture. If you arent using 1080P you might as well use a component input which doesnt require HDCP.
