You have to activate the external/dual monitor feature of your PC.  If it's a laptop, it's Fn + F? key and if your PC is a desktop you have to go to the Display Properties, Settings tab, Advance button.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I have done an autotune on my sony bravia tv but am not getting channel 9 sbs. the television in the bedroom is a smaller digital tv and that picks up all the channels. the two tv's are connected

Is the splitter an amplified splitter or not? Have you tried the channel search when you connect the antenna directly to the TV? (Disconnect the cables from the splitter and use a coupler to join them together.) Tuners do vary in their sensitivity. For digital signals, your TV should report the signal strength. This is often under the Settings sub-menu. Some TVs will give this information in the Channel Edit option.

If the straight through connection gives a better signal, check your antenna direction and try a different splitter. Amplification will often help; however, when my amplified splitter was damaged the less sensitive tuner lost a number of channels that the other TV received. (Looking at the signal strength, one TV was getting adequate signal with one bar out of 8. The other needed at least 4 bars to process the signal.)

I hope this helps.

Can't connect to pc

How are you trying to connect to the PC? Does your video card support TV-out?

If you are trying to connect VGA to component video, you need a converter like this: . There are similar ones for PC to composite video. The VGA to component video cables will not work since the two signal formats are different.

Some video cards do have a TV-out option, you will need to read the documentation to set up that option. (Those cards come with a special dongle to connect the card to the TV cable.)

If you have the converter and are not getting the signal to the TV, first check that the computer video is set to use the external monitor. (This may need to be enabled in the BIOS.) Next check that the converter is working. (Try connecting to a different TV or this TV to another computer.) Try different cables and make sure that they are fully seated to all three devices. Replace the converter if you find that it has failed. (If it is under warranty, send it to the manufacturer.)

I hope this helps.

I have A three year old AKAI 42 inch plasma tv---PDP4273M1---Mostly used as PC monitor. It was working just fine when I turned it off. When turned back on the next day, the on indicator light came on and...

Check to see what input setting the tv is on. It could still be looking for a signal from the pc input connection and no pc is hooked up thus getting no signal. Have the device you are trying to display on the tv connected and turned on and cycle through the inputs on the tv until you get a signal.

I am trying to connect my acer PC to a tv but get

The inputs on a TV are normally via the ariel and go into a pre-amp

To get a signal in you, would again, normally connect to the RGB or Video in which bypasses the pre-amp.

The VGA cable will be outputting a digital signal which a monitor will understand but a TV will not as it prime supply is via an analog signal

You may be able to get a connection if you process the signal through a freeview box which changes the signal from analog to digital

There is no real way to get satellite signals into your PC. There are many companies on the net that are selling software that supposedly does this and they are all a scam. Getting cable is easy because your cable connects to the TV tuner card you installed and then converts this into the various channels. Satellite tuners work completely different.

Connecting pc to grundig32 tv - msg out of range

I am going to suggest with that message, the the TV does not understand the signals it is getting from the PC.

Reboot the laptop while connected to the TV, and turn the TV off, then On, while the PC is connected. If you continue to get the message, look in the manual for the TV to determine the reason for the message.
