Transfer picture from laptop to my tv

How do i transfer the laptop screen to my TV to watch movies etc.
I've tried all sorts of permutations using s-video like fn+f5 alt+f5 and got nothing.

I've been into the laptops control panel then 'display properties' clicked on 'display settings' then clicked 'advanced' to find there is nothing to click on for a second monitor.

When i click on 'advanced' all i have is the following choices:
general
adaptor
monitor
troubleshoot

Do i have a hardware issue?

    Where is the drop down box you mention?
    You don't say where its located.

    I've just been into Display properties and clicked on the default monitor icon and all i get is a message that says "whats this"
    Within display settings there is no 2nd option visible no matter what i click.

You need to click the dropdown box and select the 2nd option. It should say "(Default Monitor)" in the beginning of it. Hit "Apply" and then "Ok". After that, the 'Fn+F5' combo should work. It should cycle through A) Laptop and TV, B) Just TV and C) Just Laptop.
Hope that helps.

How to Play iTunes DRMed Movies on Samsung Smart TV via Mac


Apple makes its digital content too proprietary so that we can't enjoy any content we purchased or rented from iTunes store on any other Non-Apple products. It of course won't allow us to watch the iTunes movies on Samsung Smart TV.

But this will make Samsung Smart TV users depressed if they have purchased or rented movies frm iTunes store. This tip is written to help the Samsung Smart TV users to solve the issue.

Method 1. Transfer the iTunes movies to Samsung Smart TV using an USB port.


If you have a smart tv on hand, you will see there is a USB port on this TV. So we can transfer content via USB port to this TV set. But iTunes movies are DRM protected, we can't transfer it directly. So it needs us to remove the DRM at first. TunesKit iTunes DRM Removal application is a must-have tool for Mac users.

iTunes DRM Removal for Mac Remove DRM from iTunes Rentals and Purchases...

Step 1. Download and install the TunesKit DRM removal software on your Mac
It works with Mac OS X 10.8 or later and the newest iTunes. The Windows version is coming soon.

Step 2. Add iTunes M4V videos to TunesKit
Click "Add Files" icon, you can add iTUnes movies from iTunes library directly. Or you can also drag and drop the movies to TunesKit.

Step 3. Manually choose output subtitles, audio tracks and AC 3 adolby 5.1 surround

If you don't want to output all the audio tracks, subtitles in the MP4 video. You can manually choose the audio tracks, subtitiles or 5.1 surround, stereo channels for the output.

Step 4. Start removing DRM protection.

Click "Convert" button to start removing iTunes drm protection from iTunes movies now. Once the conversion done, you can find the output MP4 video under the "Converted" tab or clicking "Open" button.

The output MP4 videos are totally DRM free and 100% original quality preserved. You can copy and paste the videos to USB now and plug the USB device to Samsung Smart TV.

Network quality to poor?


Your TV is too far from your router. It is buffering the feed. Either upgrade the speed of your internet connection or get an extender for your router.

Probably you need to do this in two stages.

1. Save the movie to your HDD -

www.vdownloader.es is good free software for saving clips, for example, from youtube etc.

2. You need a video card with a TV output to transfer the clip to your TV screen. Maybe your Pinnacle card can do this?

Hope I understood your question correctly.

Cheers

Transfer video files from camara to pc


I have a JVC Everio GZ-HD3AA camcorder which I recently purchased. I am able to connect it a TV and watch video files, but they all appear in black and white!
The downloaded movies to my laptop (Acer aspire 5630) with windows vista as the operating system are played in slow motion on the laptop screen.
