Hi matthew ife, a possible solution to this problem is to click on System Preferences and clicking on Displays and adjusting the Screen Resolution of the Mac Mini itself so your TV can display your screen.

Emerson lc320em2 how do we hook it up to netflix


The Emerson LC320EM2 is not a Smart TV. To display Netflix content, you can connect the TV to your computer via the VGA port on the TV. Then use the TV as your monitor; this may not work with HDCP content. To do this, turn off both the TV and the computer before connecting the devices. Then turn on the TV and set it to the VGA input (PC) before turning on the computer. (Note: you may have to enable the port in the BIOS on some laptops.) If your computer doesn't have a VGA port, try a DVI to VGA adapter. (This may not work with some video cards that only have digital signal output. Look at the port and make sure that the cable/adapter doesn't have more pins than the port.)

Alternatively, get a set top box with Netflix support. (Some Blu-ray players, the Roku box, Apple TV, or the WD Live Hub all have internet connection options and support Netflix. All will support a wired ethernet connection; some models will require a dongle to connect to a wifi network.)

Once you have the set top box, connect the TV to the box via a HDMI cable (purchased separately for most units). Connect to your internet connection and then log into Netflix, These steps will depend on the unit; please add a comment with your source of the Netflix content.

I hope this helps.

(I have an LG Smart TV; it is slow to find the wireless network when started. So expect some wait time before you can sign into Netflix.)

I want to connect my Sony Vaio VGN-NR120E to my TV Samsung. But I have no idea how to do that. Could you give me advice ...


Hi,
Your Sony vaio does not have any TV-out port to output the display on any analog TV. You can use your VGA (by using VGA cable) port to output your laptop on LCD / Plasma / LED TV (with a VGA port also)). If you still want to project to analog TV via the VGA port, you need to find a VGA to RGB adaptor. But bare in mind, it's hard to find one.
VGA port is like the port on computer monitor. RBG consist of three colored port.
Good luck ;)

I am trying to connect an acer one notebook to a beko 32" flatscreen and everytime i plug the vga lead in the laptop screen goes black an the tv says no signal,,what am i doing wrong??


It could be a no. of things:

- Wrong input selected via the TV
- The VGA input on the TV is turned off
- Problem with the VGA cord
- Problem with either VGA port

there the basics, if there all great and it's still no working, try setting your Computer display to EXTEND rather then projector only, then play around with your graphic output settings.

UPDATE all your Drivers and check all your cables. PLUG IN YOUR LAPTOP, yes it will make a difference to the way the graphics card operates.

Hope this helps.

Receive an invalid format message from my Olevia 32 tv


You get invalid format, or format not support becuase the video resolution setting on your PC is too high for the monitor to display, you need to lower your PC video resolution to the native resolution of the TV to get the best picture. Look at the owner manual for your TV or search the web.

I'm trying to plug my laptop into a tv to display my desktop and I can't seem to do it. I got a vga adapter and cord that is plugged into both the tv and laptop. What am I doing wrong?


The 13" White MacBook 2.0GHz has a mini-DVI out port. The adapter you need is
Apple Mini DVI to VGA Adapter
On the TV side, more information is needed. You need to specify what ports on the TV you are using for your signal, and what kind of adapter cable you are using. I suspect this is the component or connection where your problem lies.
