Use a HD set top box which has VGA output.

Ensure the STB will output at a resolution and scan rate to match that of the screen.

If your Laptop and Monitor has HDMI port, you may use that.

Which cable do i need to get my xbox to work on my HD tv


any will work asl long as your tv has the inputs available. but the _2_ that work the best i know personally is hdmi first and foremost. then your component cable (red, green, blue). i used them both on hd tv's and hdmi by far is the best. but if you have a vga (computer hookup) on your tv, i suggest trying the xbox vga cable second just as good as hdmi but the audio cables will hookup to another spot on the back of the tv. hope this helps.

I want to use my philips 29 PT8321as a monitor for my laptop


I think you need a VGA to Component Video Converter. You will need a VGA to VGA cable as well as the Component video cable and the converter box. One converter box: http://www.national-tech.com/specs/vga-to-component/40h1-50200.htm

You can check your video output specs: if your video driver can split the VGA signal into the different video components, then you just would need the component video to VGA adapter. (This is usually limited to working with projectors unless you have a higher-end stand alone graphics card.)

I hope this helps.

How to connect my computer to my tv


First off your TV needs a VGA or a DVI connection
there are two types 1. a stand alone TV ( no monitor )
and your regular TV the same VGA or DVI cable used
for your computers monitor is the same cable you'd use
for a TV , it either goes on your video cards VGA or DVI
or on your motherboards VGA or DVI

PC to tv VGA cord hookup. Installed but it said it has no single, will be used as main monetor. Workes but I ca'nt use my keybord to try to get single to tv. a1600n has onley one VGA port and nothing else...


First idea to try: make sure the TV is on (saying no signal) before you turn on the computer. Several TV/monitor units will not respond if the computer is already on when the TV is turned on. Check that you have a good cable (they do fail) and well-seated connections. Then double check that your VGA port is sending a signal out; use another monitor to check. You may have to change your BIOS or graphics card settings. If no signal at the port, you should also check, if using a graphics card, that you have sufficient power to the card from your power supply and it is well-seated in the slot.

I hope this helps.

How to hook up rca 32in flatscreen to puter


The hookup is not hard just use the output from your PC VGA , Composite etc to the TV and make sure the right input is selected ont the TV . The tricky part is making sure your PC or laptop is 1 set to display to TV (goto your video settings on desktop) and 2 if you have a laptop most have a function button on top that switches from monitor to external monitor or to split to both.

Enhanced video/TV missing in Device configuration


After looking at the specs of the think pad T43 i think you need a new laptop. The port you need to transfer video from a computer is called S-video. Your laptop don't have it. Srry.

You could look into some sort of breakout box that you could plug into your VGA out port and from there to a TV. The VGA out port is for adding a stand alone monitor and is not compatible with most TV's.
