Get a Roku streamer. It had an HDMI out as well as a composite cable so it will even work on older tv's You'll need to have a fast internet connection and a wireless capable router.

SOURCE: ilo 27 inch hdmi/dvi hd tv monitor

Hi, I'm afraid that not only a cable is needed but an analog (vga) to digital (dvi) converter/scaler as well. The iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12 can hook up to a PC using the DVI-I connection only. As you said, your computer has the standard 1D15 pin VGA connector. Another possibility is if your video card has a composite video output (normally a color yellow RCA female) or an S-Video output which will both connect direct to your iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12. For the RCA connection all you need is an ordinary RCA to RCA shielded wire cable and for the S-Video, an S to S Video cable will work. There is of course the question about the quality or the resolution. Good luck and hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

SOURCE: Need help hooking up TV, BluRay, Home Theatre & cable box

I found that since the Panasonic TH50PZ80U TV has only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV, the best solution for me was to use component (red, blue, green) cables to connect the Home Theatre to the TV. I suppose I/you could connect the home theatre to the HDMI port on the front panel, but I don't want cables hanging out the front of the TV (personal preference). Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use the VIERA Link functionality available by connecting all Panasonic components to each other using HDMI cables, but I feel it's a small price to pay for the incredible picture quality acheived by using the HDMI cable to connect the HD Cable Box to the TV. I may yet be able to control everything using the HD Cable Box remote, but I haven't gotten that far yet but I've got Comcast coming on Saturday and hopefully they can let me know if this is possible: let me know if you have a solution.

So here are the components and the cable types used to connect:

  1. HD Cable Box to TV: HDMI cable & Optical Audio cable
  2. Home Theatre to TV: Red, Blue & Green component cables
  3. BluRay Player to TV: HDMI cable
I hope this helps someone else.

SOURCE: PS3 not working on reg tv's after HDMI use on LCD HD tv

Shelley,  the fix for this is simple! Hold down the power button for about 5 seconds and the system will beep. This resets the video setting for your ps3 from HD too whatever the current cables are that you are using too hook up too the tv. This works on my PS3 which I just bought about 3 months ago and should work with the older ones.

SOURCE: the Netflix app on my

I had the same problem with my Vizio XVT473SV. I couldn't find the Netflix Activation Code. When I clicked on the Netflix App, the TV would ask me if I wanted to connect to Netflix, then it would ask me if I was a Netflix member. After clicking yes to both, it would tell me it couldn't connect to the Netflix server, check with Netflix.com/tvhelp. After a couple hours of troubleshooting, the solution was......your first use of the Netflix App has to be via the Ethernet Port/Cable. This will give you a screen with the Activation Code, after you activate the code in your Netflix account, you can go back to using WiFi on your Vizio TV to connect to Netflix. Step by step instructions are...
1) Exit the Vizio Netflix App.
2) Physically connect an Ethernet cable to your broadband (just temporarily)
3) Check to make sure the Vizio is using the Ethernet port and not your WiFi (Apps Button - HDTV Settings - Network...may have to reboot the TV to get Ethernet port connection)
4) Start the Vizio Netflix App
5) Click OK to start the Netflix App
6) You should now see a different screen that gives you the Netflix Activation Code.
7) On your Computer, Login in to Netflix,
8) Click on "Your Account & Help" link on upper right corner
9) Scroll down to Watching Instantly on your TV or Computer section
10) Click on Activate a Netflix Ready Device
11) Enter the Activation Code shown on your Vizio TV and click Activate
12) Once your Netflix account (on your computer) shows it is active, your Vizio TV will automatically log in. You should see your Instant Queue.
13) Exit the Netflix App, unplug the Ethernet cable, Turn Off your Vizio TV.
14) After 20 seconds or so (remember the TV is software driven), turn the TV back on and your WiFi should connect again.
15) Use your Netflix App and this time it should automatically connect via WiFi
note: just make sure that your wireless DSL/Cable Modem or Wireless Router is not blocking your WiFi connection request from the Vizio. You can check the connection status in the modem/router or in the Vizio in the HDTV Settings - Network.

What special equipment do I need to watch Netflix


All you need is a computer and a connection to the internet and you can watch it directly on Netflix.com. In addition you can download the free Netflix app onto your smart TV, game console, streaming player, phone or tablet.
If what you are really asking is how do you watch it on your digital TV (not smart TV) then you will need a wireless home network and a streaming internet player such as Amazon Stick, Roku or Chromecast. Your digital TV will need an HDMI input connection. Most players are also powered through a USB port so it would be helpful to have a USB port on the TV but it can be powered with a transformer at a normal AC plugin.

How do I hook-up Netflix through a Sony Blu-Ray player and a LG television


If your Sony Blu-Ray player and LG TV are recent models, each should have an HDMI cable connection. HDMI is an method to connect your digital video and audio devices with just a single combined cable. In the case of your LG TV, using an HDMI cable will allow you to send the HD video signal to your TV's screen, and allow you to hear the sound through the TV's speakers.
Your LG TV may have multiple HDMI connectors, to allow other devices to send signals to your TV, such as a cable box or satellite box or digital video recorder (DVR). Your Sony Blu-Ray player will usually have just a single HDMI connector.
Purchase an HDMI cable from your local electronics store. There are different versions of the HDMI specification, and you should get a cable that you can verify is certified for the HDMI version 1.4 specification.
Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the Blu-Ray player, and the other end into one of the HDMI connectors on the TV, noting which one you selected.
When you turn on your Sony Blu-Ray and your LG TV, you should use the remote for the LG TV to select the input source. Your LG remote should allow you to select the HDMI input connector you used, at which point you should see the display of a DVD playing on the Blu-Ray player. If you cannot hear the sound, use the LG remote to increase the TV volume.

How can I connect computer to tv


Most newer TVs have a VGA connector on the back with the rest of the connectors. This is generally the easiest connector to use. You can get a VGA cable from a local computer store to connect between your computer video connection and the TV. If you have an old VGA monitor you are no longer using, you may find that the old VGA cable is removable - as they are on some monitors.

Alternatively, you can connect to an HDMI connector on your laptop / PC to the TV's HDMI connector (they should be labeled) using a standard HDMI cable if you have such a connection available. This is the preferred method if you have this connector available on both devices.

Third alternative option is if your computer (or TV) have a DVI connector. This connector can be adapted to HDMI. As an example, if your computer uses a DVI connector, and your TV has an HDMI connector on the back you could buy a DVI -> HDMI cable, or just use a HDMI cable with a HDMI -> DVI adapter on one end.

Once you have connected to the TV in one of the above methods, you then have to use the TV remote and change the 'input source' until you see your computer.

Side note: If you are using a laptop, make sure that your external connector is enabled - for Windows users, right click on the desktop and choose properties then Display. (Windows 8 users, choose screen resolution in the same location).

Good luck!

How do I watch Netflix on a non-smart Vizio TV?


Here are several answers--but keep in mind, they all involve attaching a device of some sort--whether it's a computer, a laptop, a tablet, a phone, or a device like Google's Chromecast, Amazon's Fire Stick or FireTV, or other devices similar to those I just mentioned from Google and Amazon.
You will usually need an HDMI cable to attach your device to the TV (whether it needs an HDMI cable or not depends on whether the device plugs directly into your TV's port or whether it needs a separate cable--of which there are standard HDMI, mini HDMI, and micro HDMI).
The simplest, easiest, and least expensive types of equipment to enable your non-"Smart TV" to view Netflix are the "key-fob" type devices like the Chromecast and Amazon Fire Stick (there are others, but these are the most common, most popular, and well-supported devices.)
You would simply plug the device into your TV's HDMI port, attach the power cable (these devices may be able to draw power from your TV's HDMI port, but often require a separate power adapter to be plugged into them) log onto your Google Play account or Amazon account, download and install Netflix, and log onto Netflix. Usually (but not always) the Chromecast and Fire Stick have Netflix installed, but you may need to update or download and install/reinstall the Netflix app.

Can you hook a JVC lt-42x579 tv up to your pc for netflix


It should be as simple as taking an HDMI cable (if your computer has an HDMI output) or VGA (monitor) cable and hooking it into the TV. From there, go to Control Panel and Display Settings, and click which option you want for the TV screen under "Connect my PC to a projector."
