Could you tell me the steps to hook up my vcr & my dvd players to my tv. And what cables and or devices I need to accomplish this task?


It will depend on the devices. Most VCRs will have composite and S-video outputs. For this you will need either a composite audio/video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end: yellow (video) and red and white (audio)) or an S-video cable and a separate audio cable. The DVD player will probably have component video or HDMI outputs, depending on its age. The component video requires a 3 plug RCA video cable (red, green, blue) and a 2 plug RCA audio cable (red and white). Some DVD players have composite outputs as well. However, this limits you to an SD video output and isn't recommended, unless your TV doesn't have any HD inputs.

If your TV has one each of the appropriate input ports or 2 composite video ports, you just need those cables, assuming you have no other devices that have filled the inputs. Always connect the devices with the TV and the A/V components off. Match the color of the plug to the port. If you mix up the colors on component video cable, you may get a black&white picture. Some newer TVs use an adapter dongle to convert composite or component video to single port on the input board. Again match the colors at the dongle and then plug in the adapter. If your TV has shared composite and component signals, use the HDMI port output on the DVD player, if possible, or get a Audio/Video switch, like this: http://www.amazon.com/Panlong-Switcher-Composite-Selector-Consoles/dp/B00KXVBB3Q/ref=sr_1_24?s=audio-video-accessories&ie=UTF8&qid=1440632814&sr=1-24 .

Please add a comment with the make and model of your specific TV, VCR and DVD player. I hope this helps.

How To Connect Flat Panel TV to Computer


Hello <br /> First identify your TV's input connections. Most TVs these days have three basic types of inputs. You have your coaxial cable input, the same as your cable box or satellite, an RCA composite input (the yellow, red and white inputs) and an S-video connector. Newer televisions might have Component Video, DVI, VGA or HDMI inputs but the ones listed above are more common. <br /> Identify your computer's outputs. These days computer manufacturers are adding TV compatible outputs on their products so it's easy to have a pc to tv connection when you hook it up. The S-video in particular seems to be popping up on more and more computers, so a PC to TV S video connector might be what you need. You can shop for S-video cables all over the place online. Mostly you will find the usual VGA output that the regular monitor hooks up to (see more later on VGA cables). The newer multimedia computers will probably have all high definition outputs that connect directly to your HDTV, but for now we will deal with what most people have for both computers and televisions. <br /> Find the appropriate adapter for your connections. You may need to get a computer to TV cable so you can hook up your computer to the TV. If you have an HDTV, you may need a VGA to component cable. This VGA to component cable connects your computer to a HDTV and acts as a converter. (And that computer could be either a Mac or a PC.) <br /> A PC to tv connector has a VGA adapter on one end and (usually) a selection of connectors on the other (S-video, RCA composite and Component). The good thing about these is that you can take it from TV to TV and you'll be able to hook up computer to TV for all of them. I highly recommend a wireless adapter. It costs a bit more but wireless is worth not having a big cable mess and not keeping your computer near your TV. <br /> or you can get help from this video <br /><br /><img src="utube.png" /><b><i> You-Tube video "ZCN-nN1orYE" placeholder (do not delete) </i></b><img src="utube.png" /><br /><br />Hope this helps, if so do rate the Tip.<br />

I want to connect my computer to sony wega triniton kvxr29m80 from the hdmi or vga port to the tv's component or 3rc ports. is it possible..i have tried the hdmi to component cable and it does not...


An HDMI to component video cable will not work. These are meant for projectors that work with computers and have only component in jacks.

You will need is a VGA to Composite video converter, VGA to component video converter or HDMI to component video converter. These translate the computer output to the input the TV will understand. Here are some VGA to component video converters: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215-p1.html . (The exception is if your computer has a TV-out port. In this case, you need an adapter that looks like an S-video plug that will then have composite or component video jacks.) If you want to use the TV speakers, you will also need a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA audio adapter (either M and F/F for an RCA cable to the TV or F to M/M for a 3.5 mm audio patch cable) or cable (3.5 mm M and M/M RCA).


I hope this helps.

(A computer gives RGB output on the VGA cable; the TV reads PbPrY on the component video. Thus you need for the converter rather than a simple adapter. Similar communication differences apply on the HDMI signal.)

How do I hook up my hp computer to my lg flat screen tv


You can use the TV's VGA port which needs a VGA cable which you can get from a computer hardware store. It's called RGB in on your TV. This is also called PC input.The max resolution you will get is 1,366x768 off your PC.

I connected my computer to my TV via a VGA to RCA component cable and no image is showing up on the television.


I have two suggestions. First, make sure your TV is set up to receive inputs from the RCA jacks you're plugging the cable into. Second, you may have to change the screen resolution on the computer to something the TV can handle. To do this plug the VGA cable back into your normal monitor. Right click in the field. Left click on properties or personalize, depending on your operating system. Then left click on setting or display settings. There should be a slider bar where you can change the screen resolution. I'm guessing it's probably set too high for your TV. Try reducing it and then plug the VGA cable back into the RCA jack converter. I hope this helps you out.

If the laptop has no HDMI port, the forget the whole HDMI thing cause getting it through that port when the laptop or desktop is not made for it will end up costing as much as a new computer altogether. You need to find out if the laptop has any Composite or Component outputs. Those are relatively easy to spot. a Composite output is usually a RCA jack and also usually colored yellow, and goes into the yellow RCA port on your TV next to the red and white RCA ports which are the left and right sound channels. The Component outputs are also RCA jacks, but are usually red green and blue cause each wire sends its own color to make up the TV's image. They will also go on the back of your TV near all the other RCA ports. Wether your TV has just HDMI and no other porte or not, or if it has either Composite or Component inputs or both, that i don't know cause i don't know what your TV is. As for the sound, if you also want it on the TV, you just need to go to the local electronics store and buy an adapter/wire that goes from a 1/8 stereo headphone jack to 2 RCA jacks on the other side, one being white and the other being red. See where i'm going with that?:P Plug the 2 RCA jacks from the wire you bought into the TV in the corresponding inputs that go with the input you plugged the image in, and the 1/8 stereo jack into the headphone output of your laptop.

Connecting tv to surround sound


Look at the back side of the TV .
There will be [more than one] composite video in & out
How composite video port looks like typical 3 RCA jacks - std color of ports are Red, White & Yellow. The yellow one is the one - which carries video signal. You can connect - a RCA cable from output of SC-HT730 [yellow] to back of TV.

Most probably there will be at least one Component video behond your TV set [ if the set is HD Ready one] - in other words, If your TV supports component in.
Component Video ports are namsed as Y Pb Pr - if you have so, connect output from SC-HT370 to back of TV.

Recommendation: choose component video - if that is supported in both. That gives much better picture quality.

Input button says there is a setting for computer but manual does not give instructions


there are a number of methods that will allow you to make the connection. Many computers have incorporated composite (RCA) or S-Video (TV-Out) output that will either mirror or, better yet, extend your desktop beyond the monitor. For desktop systems, there are numerous AGP video cards available that offer a variety of video outputs. For example, ATI's Radeon X1950 PRO video card includes composite, s-video, and component video connections for analog signals. Of course, it all depends on what inputs your television can accept. If it has multiple input ports, remember that there is a hierarchy in terms of signal quality among the three typical types of connections, which, from lowest to highest, is composite, S-Video, then component video. So opt for the highest quality connection supported by both devices. Many older or more basic televisions may only have a coaxial cable connection. In this case, there are video cards with coax outputs and scan converters that will pass the signal through a coaxial cable directly to your television. Oh, and remember that you'll also need to connect your sound card's LINE-OUT connector to the TV for sound.
The tricky part may be finding the right cables to go from the computer to the TV, since there are several types of RCA (1 or multi-port) and S-Video (4-pin and 7-pin) connectors. One product I found, the Pro S-Video to 3 RCA cable allows you to connect your desktop or laptop computer's S-Video to your TV. These adapters are compatible with both S-video 4-pin and 7-pin receptacles and also connect your PC's stereo audio output to the TV.
But don't run out and buy any special video cards or cables yet... There are certain limitations of using older CRT televisions as computer displays that can easily render the advantages of size and affordability almost completely negligible. Perhaps the greatest constraint is the relatively low resolution of standard, tube-based televisions. Because of their design to accept NTSC (North American), PAL (European), or SECAM signals, good old-fashioned analog television sets generally cannot display resolutions greater than 640x480. That was barely adequate for a 14-inch monitor ten years ago, so just imagine how it might look on a 32-inch TV screen. Have you ever tried to read those fuzzy disclaimers at the end of a TV commercial? Viewing your computer's video signal through a CRT television will not yield the detail and clarity that you would normally expect, although for games and video playback it can produce acceptable results.

Step 1
Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.
Step 2Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input. Step 3 Select which type of connection you will use. HDMI and DVI represent the highest-quality connections, followed by VGA, Component, S-video, and composite. If your computer has only a VGA output and you will not using it solely to drive the plasma TV, you may want to invest in a video card upgrade. Most new video cards will offer dual monitor connections and possibly a separate TV connection. The first monitor connection is intended for the main computer monitor, and the second monitor connection, or the TV output, can be used for either a second monitor or a TV. Depending on the card, the TV output may be DVI, HDMI, component, S-video or composite. Step 4Purchase a video cable long enough to reach from your PC’s video output to your plasma TV. If the distance is over ten feet, you may want to invest in high-quality cables to ensure that the plasma TV receives a clean signal for the best possible picture. Cables over thirty feet in length, depending on the connection type, may result in poor video performance. Step 5Set your computer’s screen resolution to something that your plasma TV can accept, using the “Display” settings in the “Control Panel” in Windows. Refer to the owner’s manual of your plasma TV for the supported resolution and refresh rate. If you are using the S-video, composite or component outputs on your computer, this step may not be necessary. Step 6Connect your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate cable. Start the computer up and it should recognize the attached display. In the “Display” settings, you will need to configure how the plasma TV is used if it is attached a second display. Most video cards support “Clone” or “Mirror” mode, which displays the same content on both displays. In addition, there is the “Extended” mode, where the second display will operate independently, and windows can be dragged from one screen to the other. If your plasma TV is the only monitor for the computer, you will not to configure the multiple display modes. Step 7Connect a cable from the sound output of your PC to your plasma TV using the appropriate audio adapters. Then relax on the couch and enjoy your videos on the big screen.

I am trying to connect my PC to my TV. I have a Sharp HDTV and my PC is a Toshiba with windows XP. I have a componert video cable which is connected to the TV and PC. I have used Fn and F5 didn't work....


what model of TV was it please,
Does your computer have tv out video card installed?
For video to tv you will need a vga to tv converter,this is an external device and will work on the computers vga output straight into a vga input and give you 1 x vga out,1 x rca out, 1 x s/video out,comes supplied all prebuilt with onboard graphics solution. no extra power required runs straight of vga output.
Once the computers video output is established then set the TV up to tune into the converters output signal.
HD TV can be set up to run thru rca and components and if model is late enough shuld come equip with serial vga input for computers.Other than that HDMI seems to be the better quality of picture over rca component.Cost verses dollar really and function.
