You can order from the dealer the VGA cable adabtor to go between the computer and the TV. Make sure that the display card in the computer is complient to drive the TV monitor. You will have to look in the specs for both to see if this is so.

You will find that the pictures on a TV set will be very poor compared to a dedicated computer monitor. TV sets are really optimized for TV videos and not for computer applications.

Want to connect TV to PC and need to know how to connect


You can most likely connect your computer to your TV, but it depends on what kind of connections your computer has and what inputs your TV has. The best solution would be if your computer has an HDMI port and your TV also has one. If your computer doesn't have one but it has a DVI connecter, that is the second best solution because you can just get a DVI to HDMI adaptor. The last solution is the worst case scenario because it is analog. If your computer and TV both have VGA (the blue trapezoid plug) you can just get a VGA cable and connect the two like that. The reason that is the worst is because the quality is not that good, but in the end it will work. If you want sound, you will need a cable unless you have an HDMI port on your computer and TV. If you don't just go to the store and get a 3.5 mm headphone jack to RCA connectors and plug that into your TV.

Hello
VGA and DVI are not compactable. Your TV has no provision to connect it to computer.

DVI-HDTV Input (Input 1)

Use this DVI-HDTV Input for your external devices with DVI-HDTV output such as a Set-Top-Box, high-band DTV decoders, DVD
players and D-VHS with Digital Content Protection

1. Only DTV format such as 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p are available for DVI-HDTV input.

2. The DVI-HDTV input is NOT compatible when used with a DVD player from a personal computer.

3. When connecting a Set-Top-Box with a copy-protect digital out terminal, a high definition picture can be displayed
on the screen in its digital form
OK.

Attach laptop to hitachi 51s500 tv


See if on the back of the TV, and on the computer you have an external type VGA type connector. You then have to purchase a long VGA interface cable to go between the laptop and the TV set.
The TV must be compatible to receive the VGA and external audio from your computer, and the computer must be capable to drive external audio/video devices.
Another issue that must be worked out is both the TV and computer must have compatible screen resolution rates. You will have to get the information about the display card in the computer, and compare it to the specs of the TV set. If these do not match up in to proper range you will either have a very stretched or compressed picture, or you may not be able to have any results at all.
If the scan rates are too far out, it is possible to damage the TV set!

If everything is technically correct, you will also have to purchase compatible cables to go from the lap top external audio output to the correlated audio input connectors on the TV. This is an adapter type audio cable.
For these cables, you will have to determine the connector end types on each of the units, so that you can go to any audio/video supply store and properly pick them out.
There is a simpler solution, but it will not have good picture quality. You can buy a VGA to baseband video converter box (if these are still available). These are not cheap but they can work if set up properly and the scan rates can be matched. You attach the converter box to the external VGA port on the computer, and then use its output via the proper baseband video cables to drive the TV set. The scan rates will still have to match. The quality will be very poor.

Watch Computer on Mitshubishi WS-55819. Help me please.


Look on the back of the set and see if you have a VGA connection available. On many of the HD series they do. If id does it should also have a audio in via rca jacks or a 3.5mm stereo jack. If the set does not have a VGA input on it , look on the Laptop and see if it does have S-Video out. If it does, you can probably use it in the S-Video in on the TV and run the Audio out from the Laptop to the audio in of the S-Video Input you are using. I would use the VGA Jack if available. Be aware that if it does and you use it it will only work in low 800x600 at 60Hz.
Hope this helps,

PC to TV can't seem to get to work.


okay buddy its esay just give me a good rate!

u select:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
