Connect to hdtv
Connecting this up will be easy. What you do isget a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER oneof the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE wayCable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables withRCA PLUGSon them. ColoredYellow, (Video)Red, &White. (Audio)AV. OR If you haveSCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big BlackSocket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCARTCable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, aGreen,Red, &Blue Plugs.Also we have with the"Component Video" it is marked "Y" "Pb" &"Pr" these simply go color to color at BOTH ends, this is where theRed, Green, & Blues, colored Ends, of the Wires, goes, remembering thatthis is ALL only Video. With this method, you still must use the AV, red &White, Audio, Inputs to get the "Sound" into the unit, with theComponent setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for theAVAudio. these are,Red&White.(So with ComponentVideo there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any eventALL Cables go Color to Color,at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, oneither machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs inonly one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses,and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a"Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" onVCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.
Right, well,IFyour TV has a DB15FemalePlug on it then you CAN, connect it upand it will work, as a second "Monitor". OR If thelaptop,has a "Composite Video" aYellow RCA socket, then you can, connect to the TV's Composite IN. & itwill be a second monitor. Otherwise youcannot,the VGA signal is NOT compatible with a TV's input. SOME cards have a connectorthat plugs into the DB15 and to the TV, but they are "Special". Insaying that though you can "Micky Mouse" things together and get anoutput, but it real poor quality, and disappointing results, there are variousposts on the net about doing this if you wish.
Remember DRIVERS, you also need the drivers installed & setup correctly inorder for the hardware to work. As a tip, When connecting to a TV, alwaysconnect like this......First, plug all cables into TV's correct Video input(s).Connect up the Sound, plug all cables into laptop, turn TV ON. NOW,start the laptop, you should now soon see the an image.
NOTE: Some laptops & other devices, have HDMI out, sometimes, the AUDIO isnot passed through, the HDMI cable, & the Audio must be run from Audio/LineOUT on laptop to AV IN on TV.Alsosomelaptops have a socket that amulti-way 4/5/6/7 pins. A connector plugs into this, you then can connect tothese connections, as you would normally. Also we have "ComponentVideo" marked "Y" "Pb" & "Pr" these simplygo color to color at BOTH ends, this is where the Red, Green, & Blues,colored Ends, of the Wires, goes, remembering that this is ALL only Video. Withthis method, you still must use the AV, red & White, Audio, Inputs to getthe "Sound" into the unit
At the rear or side of the PC there should beeither or both of a 15 Pin DIN Plug, HDMI socket. or a Yellow RCA or 4 -7 pinDIN. Now IF these are present then YES you can connect to a TV. Now some TV'shave a connector a DB15 MALE, so that the cable from the PC to the TV, is DB15.this plugs in directly, with appropriate DB15 cable. This, however, will ONLYtake the VIDEO to the TV, Audio is delivered via the "Audio Out" Jackon PC, and Plugged into the AV Sockets on the TV, with a dual cored coaxialcable, they are Red & White. Some PC's also have a Yellow RCA Connector, ORa 4 -7 Pin DIN Socket, that requires a Special Adapter Cable (That generallycame with the unit, and are colored and marked as to output) to use, forVideo/Audio Out to TV. This signal is Composite or SVHS Video & Stereo Out.This connects up TO the TV's Composite/SVHS input Jacks and the Red & WhiteAudio IN, RCA Jacks, &/or DIN SVHS socket. Also we have "ComponentVideo" marked "Y" "Pb" & "Pr" thesesimply go color to color at BOTH ends, this is where the Red, Green, &Blues, colored Ends, of the Wires, goes, remembering that this is ALL onlyVideo. With this method, you still must use the AV, red & White, Audio,Inputs to get the "Sound" into the unit
First you need to know if your PC can output to a TV. Then you need to get theadapter & cables that connect the PC to the TV. Then you need the correctTV drivers installed for your video card. When they are all installed, you needto "Enable" that Monitors, the TV's, Desktop. You need to set eithera "Cloned" display or "Spanned, Extended Desktop". Go to "DisplaySettings" Now ensure the TV/Monitor connected has the correct input/outputdisplay settings. Adjust the screens resolution via the resoloution"Slider", it is best to start with, 800x600 32 bit color. or evenlower. and once working OK, THEN increase to max resolution, your TV can handle,find out from manual. Once it is all connected up. It should all just workgreat. Now, from then on, &, to get it to work every-time, the process is.Turn everything OFF. Connect the leads between PC & TV, Turn the TV, ON.Then, startup the PC up. Itshould "Detect" that it has TWO "Monitors" ie: One Monitor& One TV/Monitor, & you should see your desktop appear after a bit. Nowyou have screen 1 & screens 2. Now, if you are using "Cloned"mode, then whatever is displayed on the Master monitor, will be displayed onthe TV. If you used Spanned, mode, in this mode, however, you will haveto."Drag" the Video window, over to the TV, and it is though, youhave one "Big Desktop". Now IF using Nvidia or ATI then BOTH of thosehave thier OWN, Control Panel, this, all then can make it all a lot easier todo it. So I would suggest that this method be used. But if you get stuck, orjust want to do it by hand, then the the "By Hand" method is the onlyway.There is a great program called MultiMon, this allows great control overdual displays, and is well worth installing.
