How can I connect acer aspire 5733z 4816 to HD tv to view internet content on my t.v.? example netflix or pandora


If you have a connection to the Internet, you can watch episodes of your favorite TV shows directly on your computer, using only a web browser. Many websites offer libraries of television shows and movies to watch for free with limited advertisements. Using your laptop can allow you to connect and watch TV from just about anywhere, as long as there is an Internet connection.

Visit a popular TV show streaming website. Use credible resources when watching and streaming media online to protect your personal information. Some popular television networks now allow the viewing of their shows online for free, in case you missed an old episode or in case you're on the go. Look through genres and categories that interest you and use the website's search bar if they have one available. Search for the TV show you are looking to watch. Choose and select the show you want to watch and click on it to see if there are any further instructions required regarding using the website. Watch the TV show on your laptop by pressing "Play" on the video player. If it is not working, you may need additional plugins to run your video and sound software. http://download.cnet.com/k-lite-codec-pack/3000-13632_4-64246.html Get a collection of VFW or ACM codecs, Directshow filters for your media files http://download.cnet.com/microsoft-directx-redistributable-june/3000-2121_4-10176490.html Microsoft DirectX Redistributable

Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

I do not have windows 7, so can I still use the avertv hybrid volar max tv tuner kit for windows on a regular computer?


YES!

You can use this on a regular computer with a usb port. The product says its works with Windows 7 and my question would be, You have 7 installed on the computer right?

AS long as it has a usb port it can be used on a PC, I hope you find this very helpful

WRONG!!!! do not listen to 002. All you need to do is:

1. right click on volume in lower left
2. click on playback devices
3. choose HDMI
4. click set as default.

Same goes for when you're done watching television, just go back in and set regular computer speakers as default.

When i try to watch internet on my tv using s video i get no picture.


What is the size of your T.V.?

Having the ability to plug in your laptop to T.V. doesn't mean your free to watch hassle free. First you have to consider the resolution that will be the number of pixels your T.V. set can produce. a regular T.V. only has 320x240 resolution your average computer and laptop can only go as low as 640x480. That resolution is still very for an ordinary T.V. to produce a picture. You need a T.V. set that is at least 21" or more in size. If you want more picture quality then you need a T.V. that has 1080p resolution.
