It would depend on your computer and tv. I am assuming that you are trying to take a video and play it from your computer to your tv. Well, either you will need an hdmi connection on both the tv and computer (Most new tvs will have this kind of connection). You also could use an s-video cable if both your computer and tv have one. For audio, you can use a regular head phone jack converter to rca. Basically, go to a Radio Shack and they can set you up with what you need. Just have your tv and computer makes and models figured out so they know what you need. Even bring in the computer if you can.

If you want to bring television channels to the computer, then you need a program such as Windows Media Center to do this to start with.

Let me know how this works out for you.

    Its not Media Player, it would be Media CENTER that you would need and then a tuner if you want to use it that way.

    Another, easier option would be to buy a Tuner like one made by ATI. Please check out the following website link and any tuner you buy from them would come with its own program to use and complete instructions.

    Let me know how this goes for you.

How to connect Hi-sense plasma television to dell windows 8 laptop? Can Hdmcable be connected if not what are the other options?

Computer HDMI ports don't usually pass the sound from the computer on the cable. You have to use a cable between the PC and the PC audio IN connection on the TV. This is usually a 3.5 mm stereo audio cable.

How to hook up a laptop to tv

Hello smfj37 and welcome to FixYa. In order for you to connect your PC to your television you will need a PCI Connection Cable which can be purchased online or at places such as Radio Shack. After you obtain the cable you must first connect the cable to your PCI input on the back of your laptop then connect the other end to your television. Now your television remote should have a video input button that changes the signal to accept a PC connection which will display your laptop monitors image onto your television screen. I wish you the best of luck and if you have any further question please use the comment box below. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i use it a a PC monitor? i am connecting it and receiving a "not supported mode" display


To hook up your television to your PC, first you need to get the appropriate cable which is the cable you use in connecting your CPU to your monitor, then turn the back of the television and try to connect it to the port that is on the television.

Then turn on the television, and go to the AV mode, select from the different AV channels you have to be able to access the laptop.

That is how to hook up your television to your PC.

Take care
