Re: lcd hd tv

It depends what laptop you have.. If yours has a vga port used to plug in an optional monitor, then you'll be able to use a dvi cable to plug that into the dvi input of your tv. Then it's just a matter of setting up your laptop resolution so it looks good on your TV. Right click anywhere on the desktop, select properties, then the settings tab and adjust the size of your display until it looks the way you want. If you know the native resolution of your TV and your laptop's graphics card/chip supports this, then go for that option as you'll get the best picture. Otherwise, go for a 16:9 ratio, like 1280 x 720. You can get away with a 4:3 display like 800 x600, but bear in mind the screen will look stretched unless you opt for 4:3 mode on your TV which will leave black bars down the sides. Plugging a wireless mouse and keyboard into your laptop will mean you can leave in beside or behind the TV and work from your armchair.

How can I connect my laptop to my LCD TV through HDMI cable (brand:LG) (model:LF15 series) HD ready?

You'll need to make sure that your laptop & LCD TV have an HDMI port. If they both do, simply connect an HDMI cable from your laptop to your LCD TV and make sure the input on the LCD TV is set to receive A/V from the HDMI port.

LC-26DA5U 26 in. HDTV-Ready LCD Television: i connect a hdmi cable 2 my hd cable box - the pic...

The cable box needs to be set to send different signals when using hd tv and standard tv. Usually a good setting would be 720p in hd and 480p in standard. The tv is working fine it is the cable box sending the signal. If you have another hdmi source such as a dvd player you may hook that up to show the tv is working just fine.

My 47" LG has an internal HD reciever but it isn't picking up any HD channels.

Is it connected to an antenna? Did you do a channel scan for digital channels? See or for more information.

you will need the following = HDMI LEAD
Optical Audio Lead
Red and White phono Lead

Sky HD Box > connect to Tv via HDMI Lead.

Sky HD box > Connect the optical Audio, and the Phono Leads To your Surrounds sound.

The reason I am wanting you to connect the phono's as well as the optical audio out. Not all programs are transmitted with Dolby D so you will need these for normal sound to come through your surround sound.

One last thing I would like you to check is the sound settings on your Hd box.

On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 4, 2, then ensure that Dolby D is displayed if not highlight and using the blue button change this to Dolby D. then arrow down to save.

On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 0, Arrow along to SOUND then arrow down and change this to DOLBY D Then press the GREEN button.

Hope this Helps you out. IF so please leave a thumbs up

Connecting Laptop to LCD

It might have something to do with wether the VGA cable has all pins connected.
I think some cables don't have all 15-pins wired.
As soon my LCD TV works I will post the outcome.
