It depends on the ports the computer and the TV have If both have VGA (blue) use a VGA to VGA cable. You can also use an S-Video-to-S-Video cable If both have DVI, use a DVI-toDVI cable. If both have HDMI use an HDMI-to-HDMI cable.
Other possibilities are combinations of the various modes above VGA-to-DVI, VGA-to-HDMI, VGA-to-S-Video, etc. VGA-To-D
Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.
You need a VGA cable (15 pin) connected from PC (monitor out) to the PC input on the HDTV (15 pin) this is for the video. For the audio, connect from PC to HDTV, audio cable, either 3.5mm from earphone out on PC to HDTV 3.5mm audio input (next to PC VGA input) and also be sure to set PC screen resolution to compatible output for HDTV like 1024 X 768 or 600 x 800 etc.
-get a vga cable(usually both ends are male)
- connect it to the vga port on the laptop then the other end to your tv
-press fn+f2 to switch the display to your tv( this is model/brand dependent, check your user's manual for more info)
You'll need: •VGA cable •S-Video Audio to 3 RCA Type Adapter Cable •HDMI cable •DVI cable Check the connection options on your TV. If your TV has a VGA connection slot, plug the TV into the computer with a VGA cordlike a computer monitor. Connect one end of the VGA cable to the back of the computer and the other end to the TV. Switch between normal TV viewing to displaying your computer on your TV by selecting the proper mode from the remote control, some remotes will mark the proper mode as "VGA" while others will label it "Computer" or "PC." Check the back of your computer to see if you have an S cable slot. Connect S cable portion of the S-Video Audio to 3 RCA Type Adapter Cable to the computer and plug in the green audio plug to the audio port of the PC. Plug the red white and yellow RCA cables into the matching colors of the RCA slots on the TV. With this method you will need to switch modes from TV to video. Check the back of the computer and TV for either DVI or HDMI slots. The slots on your computer must match, you cannot connect a DVI to a HDMI. Plug one end of the corresponding cable into the the back of the TV and the other end into the computer. Choose the correct program mode, HDMI or DVI, from the remote to view the computer from the TV.
First off your TV needs a VGA or a DVI connection there are two types 1. a stand alone TV ( no monitor ) and your regular TV the same VGA or DVI cable used for your computers monitor is the same cable you'd use for a TV , it either goes on your video cards VGA or DVI or on your motherboards VGA or DVI
So you have a mac with a mini-dvi slot, you have a mini-dvi to dvi adapter, and then Dvi to vga adapter which connects to the tv?
The mini-dvi to dvi adapter doesn't have the analog VGA signal your tv needs. If I understood right.
Apple's mini-DVI to DVI-D cable does not carry the analog signal coming from the mini-DVI port on the Apple computer. This means that instead of buying a single mini-DVI cable from Apple and using a cheap DVI-to-VGA adaptor when you need VGA output, you must purchase another mini-DVI cable from Apple.
