Video Input Selection Problem

I have two separate macs hooked up to this monitor.  But I can't select between viewing the two desktops unless one is put to sleep.
Am I missing something?

That is due to the fact that you can only connect 1 desktop to the HP LP2465 as most monitors.

For one the LP2465 does not have the picture in picture technology and for another the two ports you are connecting your Macs into are DVI (Digital Video Interface) connections. One is the Single DVI and the other is a Dual DVI.

It does not mean you can connect two Mac computers to the same display and both work. That is not practical because there is only one video input interaction possible with a computer and a monitor.

The DVI connections are determined by their ability to use either Analog and Digital signal transmissions through one connector.

So in order to effectively use your HP LP2465, you can only use 1 computer with the monitor because it is not designed to work with two computer graphics cards at once. Most LCDs have only one DVI or VGA connector to connect to a computer- your just happens to host two types of DVI connections is all..

That is the reason one computer is on with your display and the other is not displaying any video.

Take a look at this great explanation of the differences between Single DVI and Dual DVI connectors via this link:

How To Connect Flat Panel TV to Computer


Hello <br /> First identify your TV's input connections. Most TVs these days have three basic types of inputs. You have your coaxial cable input, the same as your cable box or satellite, an RCA composite input (the yellow, red and white inputs) and an S-video connector. Newer televisions might have Component Video, DVI, VGA or HDMI inputs but the ones listed above are more common. <br /> Identify your computer's outputs. These days computer manufacturers are adding TV compatible outputs on their products so it's easy to have a pc to tv connection when you hook it up. The S-video in particular seems to be popping up on more and more computers, so a PC to TV S video connector might be what you need. You can shop for S-video cables all over the place online. Mostly you will find the usual VGA output that the regular monitor hooks up to (see more later on VGA cables). The newer multimedia computers will probably have all high definition outputs that connect directly to your HDTV, but for now we will deal with what most people have for both computers and televisions. <br /> Find the appropriate adapter for your connections. You may need to get a computer to TV cable so you can hook up your computer to the TV. If you have an HDTV, you may need a VGA to component cable. This VGA to component cable connects your computer to a HDTV and acts as a converter. (And that computer could be either a Mac or a PC.) <br /> A PC to tv connector has a VGA adapter on one end and (usually) a selection of connectors on the other (S-video, RCA composite and Component). The good thing about these is that you can take it from TV to TV and you'll be able to hook up computer to TV for all of them. I highly recommend a wireless adapter. It costs a bit more but wireless is worth not having a big cable mess and not keeping your computer near your TV. <br /> or you can get help from this video <br /><br /><img src="utube.png" /><b><i> You-Tube video "ZCN-nN1orYE" placeholder (do not delete) </i></b><img src="utube.png" /><br /><br />Hope this helps, if so do rate the Tip.<br />

I Have Proline LD1401 TV and it does not work with sound and picture, Only sound. What can I do. No money for new one.


Hi! Welcome to Fixya!

If you are unable to view video on your television set, the issue may be that the TV's video input selection does not match.

The TV input source must match how the equipment for example DVD is connected to the TV. Every TV is different in the way that the ports are configured on the back of the TV and the menus are presented on the TV screen; however, there are some basic similarities between them.

You may follow the steps bellow:
1. Please make sure that the cables are properly connected,
2. Use the TV's remote control and change the video input selection.
Some common names of the button on the TV remote are:
  • Video Source
  • Video Input
  • TV/VID
3. Press either of those button and check if that will give you options.
4. If you are using a coax cable kindly cycle the channels from channel 1 to 10 check what channel can give you picture

For clarifications please keep me posted.

Thanks!

To correct the issue, use the TV's remote control and change the video input selection. Many newer TVs have an auto-detection system and will automatically detect that something is connected to the various ports on the back of the television. However, some TVs have to be configured manually.
Some common names of the button on the TV remote are:
  • Video Source
  • Video Input
  • TV/VID
Locate the video input menu for their specific TV. Below is an example of the video input menu of a TV.

This example indicates check boxes next to the items that the TV is detecting. Be advised that this menu must match the location on the back of TV where video components are connected.
You may also check if all cables are properly connected.

Thank you.
Keep me posted. :)

When I switch on the unit, i can hear the sound but there is no picture


Hi! Welcome to Fixya!

If you are unable to view video on your television set, the issue may be that the TV's video input selection does not match.

The TV input source must match how the device for example DVD player is connected to the TV. At the back of Samsung's LN40A650A HDTV are three HDMI inputs, plugs for component input, an antenna input for the DTV receiver and a VGA input. Please check on what port the device is plug.

To correct the issue, use the TV's remote control and change the video input selection.
  • Press the Menu button on the remote control and navigate to TV Input
  • Only ones that are actually connected are highlighted and available.
  • If there are multiple device connected please make sure you select the device you want to connect.
You may also check if all cables are properly connected.

Thank you.

How do I hook up my hp computer to my lg flat screen tv


You can use the TV's VGA port which needs a VGA cable which you can get from a computer hardware store. It's called RGB in on your TV. This is also called PC input.The max resolution you will get is 1,366x768 off your PC.

Trying to hookup old dvd/vcr to new flat screen. have cable box hooked up nad working. dvd/vcr no hdmi connections. what cable hookup do I use


You need to use composite inputs. They have three connections, yellow for video, white for left audio and red for right audio. It does not matter which input you go into. I would imagine there are about 7 separate inputs like the ones I described, just remember which one you use because you will have to set the input to that number to see the VCR/DVD later. Get a phono or RCA patch cable and connect the same colors from out on the vcr/dvd box to in on the tv. Turn everything on, set the tv to the proper input using the menu or input selection and you should be able to view video tapes or dvds. Let me know if you need more help.

I can't seem to hook up my Insignia T.V. and my dvd player up


The way to hook up the dvd player to the television to to put a cable into the output signal section of the dvd player( Ther may be many different ways to hook-up the signal s-video and component video, regular video. You must pick one of these output signal sources to put into the input section of your television by matching them up i.e s-video out to s-video input compnent video output to component video input, regular video out to regular video input. For each of these video hook-ups there will also be a set of two sound cables. Look on the back of your television for the signal input section and hook up the video cables and the sound cables to your selected input. You should do this with both units turned off in order not to damage the circuits by shorting them on cable insertions ofr causing heavy feedback in the circuits. One this connection is complete. Trun on the television first and select the TV's signal source . By pressing the input button and using the up and down arrows to find the correct selection. By matching up all three sources you now should have the correct signal path. Turn your DVD and test the controls. try using the volume control and use you dvd to to play,ff, or stop the dvd.If all this works then you have done the set up correctly and can now enjoy your dvd's on the television Hope this helps you with your problem..
