Struggling to connect my Goodmans Freeview+ HD recorder (HDMI output) to either the DVI (female) or VGA (female) input of my Samsung LE27T61B TV which is HD ready with a resolution of 1366 x 768.


They are different protocols. You have to have a converter than changes the protocol (protocol is like a language...it needs to be translated to a different language). They are available from eBay or amazon but they don't always work very well. Best thing to do is get a unit with the correct connections.

How do I load Netflix on the tv? I have it on my computer


It will depend on the TV. If you have a smart TV with a built-in networking connection, you may be able to just log-in to your Netflix account. (This depends on the manufacturer.)

If you do not have a smart TV, then you need to get the video from the computer to the TV. You can move the computer next to the TV and then connect the computer directly to the TV if the ports are compatible. If the TV has an HDMI input, then an HDMI or DVI output on the computer will probably work. (For DVI, you need a DVI to HDMI cable or adapter plus an audio connection between the computer's audio out and the TV's audio in. This may need a 3.5 mm audio cable or a 3.5 mm audio to RCA adapter.) Not all HDMI ports correctly read the HDMI signal from a computer, you'll need to check the manual. The VGA cable between the computer and the TV may work with the same audio connection as described for DVI to HDMI, if both devices have those ports. Connect the computer to the TV with the cables when both devices are off. Then turn on the TV and set it to the appropriate input before you turn on the computer. Once the computer is on, it may recognize the new monitor and set the resolution for you. (On some laptops, you may need to enter the BIOS to enable the video output port before you start.) Next use the graphics settings to set the computer to the correct resolution and to use the second screen (particularly for laptops). Under Windows OS, right click on the desktop and look for Screen Resolution,Graphics Properties or a similar command in the pop-up menu. (This means clicking on the screen anywhere there are no running programs or icons. With Windows 8, you may need to press the Windows + D if you are on the Start Screen.)

If you wish to keep your computer farther away from your TV, you'll need a set-top streaming device. You can consider a wi-fi HDMI pair or something like the Roku. (Some versions of the Roku box would let you directly log-in to Netflix.) Connect the device to your network following the directions. Then install the appropriate software on your computer. Set the TV to the new input and start streaming with that software.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the make/model of the TV and the computer. Then I can check the ports available on the devices and help you determine the best connection option.

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 change my LG 4k to a higher resolution.


You cannot change anything from the tv side. TV automatically select the resolution based on the content you are playing. Play a 4K video the tv will take care of it.

TV won't recognize PC through HDMI port anymore


Thanks for all the background, super detailed! I had a similar problem on a new Samsung that was really flaky with my HDMI from a raspberry pi. Would have to do all kinds of unplugging, cycling power etc like you're doing to get it to work. Once on it would work until I turned the tv off (actually doesn't turn off, but goes to sleep) and back on. Finally figured out that the resolution I was outputting wasn't supported, BUT sometimes it would work. Once I changed the resolution to a supported resolution it worked all the time.

Wrong resolution on smart tv- cvd601


I made the mistake of selecting the largest of the resolution settings of 1920x1080-50Hz. The CVD601 DOES NOT HAVE A RESET BUTTON! You have to do all your business on screen. So to regain my setting of 1280x720-60Hz, I disconnected from my TV and hooked up to my computer monitor. At that point, I got my picture back and went to settings. Upon restoring the settings in TV Screen Resolution to: 1280x720-60Hz just click and exit. In the US everything is based on the 60Hz cycle. Hence the hickup when you pick anything in the 50Hz cycle. I hope this helps!

Computer has vga port and tv has hdmi port


Please know that VGA is an analog signal and HDMI is digital so it is impossible to go from one to the other without a converter. If you need to convert any VGA or component signal into a digital high definition HDMI signal up to 720p resolution, this conversion box will do the job perfectly. The only additional thing that you need to get besides this converter is an HDMI cable of the appropriate length.http://sewelldirect.com/Component-VGA-to-HDMI-Scaler-720p.asp Hope this Helps you!

I can't get a signal between my Sony Blu-Ray Disc/DVD Player and Samsung HDTV monitor. They are connected via a HDMI cable. A brief message on the HDTV reads "Not supported".


First, try to reset resolution of HDMI Sony BD output.
Unplug HDMI cable from TV and change to Component connection to reset BD output resolution.
Than after you entered to resolution menu, choose to standart resolution 720 or 480 i.
If above methode working, try to reconect HDMI cable again to HD TV.
If any problem with picture or still "Not Supported" messege appear, i suggest to change HDMI cable first.
i hope its work.
