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.

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.
Most probably it will be enough to press Fn + F5 to change the display output. Pressing this combination sequentially toggles between 3 settings usually: Internal LCD External output LCD and external simultaneously.
The external-only option is the best, as it will give you an option to set a screen resolution suitable/optimum for your TV, as oposed to the resolution of your internal LCD display, which is optimum for your display, but doesn't use the full capabilities of your TV.
Good luck, and please come back with a testimonial/rating if helped.
IMake sure that you have the laptop for an VGA OUTPUT. When you toggle between the function keys. When your laptop LCD goes out it is in VGA OUT mode....when you toggle again it should be in LCD/VGA OUT (both TV and laptop should display). You need to set the TV to VGA mode as well...otherwise you might not get an output. If you still have a problem then test on a regular monitor to see if you are getting an output to the monitor
IF THIS HELPS PLEASE VOTE.....GOOD LUCK AND THANKS..
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.
OLD PROGRAM GUIDE:
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.
NEW PROGRAM GUIDE:
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
If the LCD only has coax, it will never display a HD picture quality. However, the Comcast HD Box will still display a picture using the coax connection. So, you could watch any HD channel, but the picture quality will not be high definition.
