The TV inputs are as follows
Red and white RCA connectors is for left and right stereo audio
Yellow RCA connector is for composite video.
You need an adapter to convert 15pin video to RCA audio and composite video

Rgb connection stopped working on laptop


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.

How can i connect my laptop to my tv?


This will depend on exactly which model of laptop and TV. Look at the TV and determine what ports it has. Then look at the laptop for the same information. You may need to enable the external video ports in the BIOS. Turn off the computer and press F2 repeatedly after turning the unit on. (Some computers use Esc, F1 or F10. There will be a quick splash screen with the information.)

Then it still depends. If your TV and your laptop both have a VGA port, get a VGA M/M cable. (Often this is blue - it's a D-sub 15 pin connector.) This is the simplest option. Turn off the TV and the laptop and connect the cable. Then turn on the TV and set it to the VGA source (look for a button marked Input or Source on the TV or remote). Then turn on the computer; with most modern OS versions, it should set the correct resolution. You will need to enable the external monitor. This will depend on the OS. In Windows 7, right click on the display (where there are no running programs or icons) and select Graphics Properties. Then set the monitors to use the external monitor. Click Apply and then confirm the setting. Note: you'll need to also connect an audio patch cable (3.5 mm) between the laptop's headphone jack and the TV's VGA audio input if you want to use the TV speakers.

If your laptop and TV both have an HDMI port, you may be able to use that cable. You'll need to check the details on the TV. Not all TVs will read the computer's signal on the HDMI port. (The data isn't the same as from a set-top box like a Blue-ray player or cable box.)

If the laptop has a DVI port, depending on the TV, try either a VGA to DVI adapter or a DVI to HDMI adapter.

A few older laptops may have have an TV out (looks like S-video) port. In that case, you can connect to a similar port on the TV with a dongle and the cables.

For a TV with only composite or component input and a laptop without a TV out option, you'll need a VGA to composite or a VGA to component converter. These convert the RGB signal from the laptop to one that the TV will understand (component is YPbPr). See http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-composite-video/c10000-c11200-c11213.html?sorter=productname-en-asc or http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215.html?sorter=productname-en-asc for examples.

Please add more information about your laptop and TV for additional help.

If you want to copy analogue video to your computer to make a DVD video disk, then you need an analogue video capture device on your computer and of course a DVD burner.
There are USB analogue video capture devices on the Internet, and they cost under $100.00

Cant get my acer to burn dvds it doesnt reconise the blank disk


Ok, Here the issue, A lot DVD media are out side not good. To use your burner try to install original software came with it(Poss.NERO)
If you can't try to use older version, Vista is not working for most burners. You need XP. ALso look for dvd43 and install it. You need this.
You may also need some codecs that works with burners, Media as Taiyo Yuden suggested. check smartmediacom for more informations.Specially media troubles section.
