What connections does your TV need to have in order to use the firestick or fire TV?

We have one TV that is newer and an older flat screen LCD TV. Wondering if we can connect either of those to the older TV?

SOURCE: LCD TV and VGA output

The resolution and refresh rates have to match exactly to the TV for it to work correctly with the computer.

The newer computers are using much faster refresh rates by default. Their default resolution is also different.

Consult the manual for the TV and see if the computer's external monitor output can be set to match to what the TV exactly requires. Both the refresh rate and resolution are critical.

SOURCE: I have an Element 32

When you are using a laptop you have to press and hold down the function key and hold down the dual monitor key (either F5 of F8) for about 15 full seconds. The screen of your laptop should darken and the image should come up on the tv screen.

How do I get an amazon fire stick to work on my Panasonic plasma tv model TH-37PX70BA

  1. Plug your Firestick into one of the HDMI ports on your TV. Plug the USB power cable into your Firestick and into the wall or a USB outlet on your TV (if there is one)
  2. Turn on your TV and set the INPUT device to the correct HDMI port. There should be a splash screen or setup screen on your TV at that point.
  3. Using your Firestick remote, navigate to network settings and scan for your WI-FI router, Then enter the Wi-Fi password for your router (the same one you use for your smart phone or laptop).
You should be able to fully use your Amazon Firestick, and if you have Amazon Prime, be able to access all prime and free offerings from Amazon.

Can you explain in simple terms that if I buy a fire stick with kodi, does that means it automatically streams various films and music from Amazon or Netflix foc. Does it needs to be jail broken

Why would you buy kodi installed FireStick when you can do it yourself in a few minutes? I mean, OK, you don't have any problem to spend some additional money in buying Kodi preinstalled Fire Stick but what if you get problems later? It is always better to know how to install Kodi on Firestick as it will help you in future too. How to Install Kodi on FireStick

I purchased a fire stick and I'm trying to hook it is to my tv I'm getting nothing should I still have my cable wire in my tv I have tried both ways and get nothin

Yes you can continue to use your cable. Firestick is connected to the HDMI port. You must have your tv source on HDMI to configure Firestick. Lastly, you must have a good wireless internet signal to setup Firestick.

Hey, there are couple of ways to download as well as installing Kodi on Firestick. I am not sure which method you used to download Kodi. I would suggest you download Kodi using ES File Explorer and then it will show install button as soon as download completes.

How do I get live tv with my fire stick

I have no experience of these but as they work by connecting to the internet nothing is live in the conventional sense but streamed either from a single or a series of websites the firestick is programmed to log on to. The website(s) will usually provide a mixture of "live" tv, catch up tv available for a limited time, archive material and special programming and some movies.

What you get will depend on what is available free and what needs to be paid for, your internet/wireless connection and how good you are at reading instructions and operating the remote, assuming the firestick is working correctly.

A friend had a problem with connected tv and it turned out some of the sites took a long, long time to load and he was impatient and assumed it wasn't working.

Will my hp pavilion a 420n support a 19" flat screen monitor


I have to assume you are currently using the larger size called a tube type monitor and would like to have an LCD or flat screen type monitor connected to your computer.

To connect to new LCD flat screen monitor to your computer would be exactly the same connection as what you are currently using.

The only problem you could run into is the connector itself. Some of the flat screen LCD monitors do not have the older style connector called VGA, usually blue called DB15, because it has 15 pin connector. They may have only have the newer style called a DVI type. Some do have both types.

Please be sure the LCD you want has the older style DB15 connector to connect to the rear blue VGA input of your compter.

Good Luck

Need codes to sink cable remote to rca flat screen

In order to use (Sync) a remote with a TV, the REMOTE needs to contain the codes for the TV. Us the remote's code list and try each code for that manufacturer. If none work, you need a newer REMOTE.
