I want to connect my computer to the pioneer sd-643hd5 tv so I can view movies, pictures etc; The tv only has pin connections, cable connection, s-video connection, and a RGB port for HDTV broadcasting....


depending on the connections available on your pc, you can get a vga to rgb cable fairly cheap but I am not sure on how good the quality will be, same with the s-video connection. vga connections on the pc are usually blue in colour, if you have dvi connection you can get a similar cable to do the job. Most computers will auto sense the tv if you connect the cables with the pc switched off, make sure you are on the right channel on the tv and the switch on the pc.

hope this helps

Is it possible to use the rgb input on the sd-643hd5 as a computer monitor input? My laptop has a female 15 pin video out which seems compatible with the tv's input except that they are both female...


O don't see why not. They are both female by default, as we don't want VGA pins poking out of the rear of our laptops to catch on stuff.
Don't forget to tell the laptop to switch to external screen.
Hope this helps.

Connect laptop to toshiba 50h8250


This requires a converter. If the laptop has a VGA port, use an VGA to component video or VGA to composite video converter. See this site for some examples: http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html . Do not use a VGA to component video cable - these are meant for projectors that use RGB signals.

If the laptop has an HDMI port, you'll need a different type of converter, like this: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdmi-to-component-adapter.html . Then set the output to YPbPr.

I hope this helps.

(I doubt your laptop has a video controller that can output a non-RGB signal.)

I have a dp15657 19" sanyo it doesnot have the 15


Possibly. If your video card has a TV-out capability, you can do it directly with the appropriate connector. This adapter may have shipped with the video card. Check the specs, only some cards do this.

Otherwise you need a VGA to composite video, VGA to S-video or VGA to component video converter. See http://www.svideo.com/vga2video2.html for some samples. Do not just use a VGA to component video cable; those are for connecting to a projector that interprets VGA RGB signals.

If you want to use the TV speakers you will also need a 3.5 mm stereo (male) to RCA stereo (2 male plugs red/white) adapter unless you get a converter that includes this in the unit.

I hope this helps.

Is component RGB the same as component Y-PBPR?


Most of the time, Component y-pbpr indicates an RCA type connection with three wires for video (Blue Green Red). RGB usually refers to a VGA input (like the one that comes out of a computer - 15 pins, and 3 rows)

Samsung LCD TV not receiving PC signal


Check your vga cable. Some cables have only 14 pins, some have all 15. The missing pin is pin 9, in the 15 pin cable it carries 5v from the graphics card to the screen. Without that 5v signal most LCD and Plasma television screens won't recognise a PC input. I had the same problem and only managed to fix it when my girlfriend swapped a cable over for me and as she did so glanced inside and said "it's got a bit missing" The cable that came with your PC most likely only has 14 ins as that is all a monitor screen needs.
You can buy a 15 pin cable at most PC or electronic shops, just check that isdoes have all 15 pins befiore you buy it. The cheap ones are just as good as the expensive ones unless you are buying 20 foot cable. For 6 foot cable the cheap ones are just as good as the expensive ones.
