Hello I have some movies on my laptop but now I want to wach them on tv on my TV I have only scart-input,experts told me I need a cable with D15 connecting from my laptop to one transformer to my...


Most Laptops use S-Video as a way to display video on your TV screen.
You can pick up a S-Video cable at your local Electronics store IE Radio Shack. Before purchasing the cable ensure your TV has the correct input.

The four main types are (in increasing quality):
1. S-Video [2 types: 4Pin as in picture'7Pin]
Port: http://www.coloredhome.com/video/s-video...
Cord: http://akamaipix.crutchfield.com/graphic...
2. VGA
Port: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/co...

3. DVI
Port: http://vocaro.com/trevor/blog/wp-content...
Cord: http://www.tech-faq.com/dvi-hdtv-connect...
4. HDMI - also transfer sound signal
Port: http://media.bestofmicro.com/,2-3-49323-...
Cord: http://www.k1cable.com/images/hdmi_000.j...

All of these do the same thing: The laptop sends the video information through the Port and the Cord. Your TV Recieves that information in its port. Numbers 1 to 3 do not transfer sound, so you will need a separate adapter for your headphone to TV Audio. #4 HDMI transfers both sound and audio data, so you won't need a separate cable for sound.
Check if your TV has corresponding ports. If not, you can buy adapters. This is an example of a VGA to RCA(Red/White/Yellow analog cables) and S-Video

I cant watch a movie with the attached dvd on my dx-ldvd19


Hello,

If you cannot watch a movie with the attached dvd on your dx-ldvd1, you have to first check your connection if it is properly done, ensure the video out prongs from are properly connected to the dvd and the video in is properly plugged in the vidoe in of the television. Also do same for the audio cords too.

If you have assessed it to see that they are properly plugged, then you check if you have the television on the AV channel or mode to be able to watch movies on your television.

If you have checked all these and see that they are all properly connected, then it is obvious that the problem is from the prongs, probably they are bad and need replacement.

Take care and good luck

I've connected my laptop to mu Tv - want to watch a movie from DVD on computer. Video part ok, but no sound coming through tto Tv. Using two separate cords for audio and video.


Go into the audio settings in the computer and make sure the a/v volume or audio output volume is turned on. Right click on the little speaker at the bottom right and select adjust audio properties. This will be the sound and audio properties. Click advanced at the volume bar box and you will see all the different volume bars. Make sure they are turned up and not muted. This is on windows XP. Yours may be different but it should have sound and audio properties somewhere. Thanks for using fixya. Hope this helps.

My girlfriends computer did this a lot. What we did and I don't know if it would work for you was to use the HDMI cord (obviously your laptop has to have an HDMI). The S-Video cord was very tricky to keep it from going black we had to mess with the cord a lot!

Lost manual...I cannot get DVD or VCR to record


You need to decide which set of inputs or outputs you want to use. To record, and watch what you have recorded on your TV, you will need TWO sets of audio/visual patch cords. One for recording and the other for playing. Let's start with the recording. Look for the Line in or video in plugs on your DVD-VCR unit. Some recorders have separate inputs for the VCR and DVD. Others let you select with the remote. Usually Line 1 is at the back and Line 2 is on the front. Your remote will have "recording source" to let you select, or sometimes you can use the channel up and down arrows to select your input source. Your remote will also allow you to select either the DVD or VCR for recording. Connect the Yellow plug to the Video In socket, and the red and white plugs to audio in., Connect the other end of the cord to the TV or cable box. Yellow goes to Video Out, red and white go to audio out. Recording from the cable box is much easier because you wiull always have a signal going into the DVD-VCR recorder no matter what happens at the TV.  Now look for the Video out connection on the DVD-VCR recorder. Connect the Yellow plug to video out and the red and white plugs to audio out. Ignore the other connections at this point. They are for RGB component video. Your DVD -VCR should have one output for both functions. Use that one.
Now connect that cord to a Video one or Video 2 input on your TV.
Test the set-up. Play a DVD or a VHS tape and try to bring it in using the TV remote.
Then turn on a program and try to record it on  the DVD-VCR, then play it back.
This sounds very complicated, but all that's involved are two patch cords with three plugs on each end - 12 connections in all and color-coded. YELLOW is always video.

Connecting plasma tv to pc


You need to either connect to the TV the cord that your computer monitor would connect to or have a video card that supports S-Video and the appropriate cables S-Video and RCA audio out cables for either.

Then you must select the appropriate input on your TV, such as VGA or S-Video (and audio in.) .

Let us know how you make out.
