Does your TV have a VGA input? Does your Video card have RCA output?

If one or the other is true ... you can probably do whata you want.

    You will need a video card that outputs RGB signal ...

    You are identifying a mike input ... speaker out put and a headphone output ... probably.

    I don't get it ... I gave you good advice for a question you asked ... you later changed the criteria of the question ... (where did the VCR come in?) and you rate me not helpful. You identify your computer as OLD ... if it is old ... and does not have TV readable output ... it will have to be upgraded to that capability. Simple.

    If you want to view movies (which are delivered in VCR format, DVD format and downloadable) you have a DVD player, a VHS and a computer - why don't you concentrate on what you CAN do instead of what you might be able to do at great additional expense. Why put the movies on your hard drive (which take tons of resources) so you can see a movie on your TV.

    Your negative rating is unjustified.

    Thank you for visiting

How do I connect my laptop to my tv?

This application is really not that hard to do if you have the cables, ideally you are going to want the HD stuff so you can go depending on your laptop tops resources as far as hookups. If you have HDMI hookup on the laptop you will need a long enough cable to go to your TV just hook the cables up to HDMI sources both input and output then get a split Y RCA and stereo input that will plug into the audio jack the Red and White that is all there is to it really. Go to settings and tick on connect to another monitor.

Whichever sources you have to plug in with be it audio or video you will need to match cables to TV and your laptop. There is DVI, HDTV, Standard Yellow Red & White cable and popular SVIDEO source.
You can find all that information on the Internet on how to do this. I also took a look at the images of how to do this that is what your seeing above in the picture that came from images in the "Google Search" John

I need to connect a Dell Optiplex GX520 PC Desktop to a TV that is non-HDMI Can you assist?

As I see you have two choices to connect your PC to TV.
1. Use VGA to RCA Component Cable

2. Use VGA to Scart Cable - It is hard to find that one.

So if you choose the first option, you have to connect VGA to your computer (it is marked with 9 in the picture below) and RCA end to the TV.
Before that, lower the resolution of the computer and set the frequency of the Video adapter to 50Hz.
Make sure your Video card software initializes the TV.

That's all. Simple as that.
Good luck!

Dell Inspiron 2200 to Phillips 47 " TV

check this out *A VGA connector and cable are used to carry analog video signals plus display and graphics data. The VGA is a 15-pin connector commonly found on laptops and other devices. With this port you need a PC-to-TV Convertor to connect laptop to TV. You simply plug the VGA cable from the source into the convertor, and use an S-Video or RCA cable out to the TV. The converter is USB powered, so there’s no external power adapter to carry around, making this laptop to TV connection entirely portable. you will need a seperate audio cable unless you are going to use your laptop's speakers

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.

Sanyo TV


If I understand your posting/description right, you have:
1, a Sanyo TV with only 1 video input;
2. you have a DVD player with only video output; and
3. you have a VCR (which I will assume to be with both video input and output).

Your query, if I may clarify, is how to hook them up so that you need not connect/disconnect any video cable when you want to switch video source from either DVD or VCR.

If that is what you want, then connect:
a. audio/video OUT of your DVD to audio/video IN of the VCR;
b. audio/video OUT of your VCR to audio/video IN of the TV.

The above described connection would allow you to:
i. watch DVD movies on your TV (your VCR must be powered ON and set to Video INput, your TV must be powered ON & set to Video INput);
ii. watch tape movies from your VCR without disconnecting/connecting cables.

Additionally, this arrangement would allow you to record DVD movies in your VCR. Further, connecting your cable/aerial to the RF INput of your VCR would allow you to do the same with a TV/Cable program.

Incidentally, if one of your units (TV, VCR, DVD) would only have a single audio input, it is still possible since some models uses the white audio RCA connector as either left or mono, the red is right. You can also use a 2 female RCA to 1 RCA male adapter as shown below to joint the red/white audio.


Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you require additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
