Make sure your putting the TV on the correct input. Also you might need to right click on your desktop and go into your display properties to turn on your second screen.

How do i get a movie to play from computer to the tv with hdmi


If your TV has an HDMI input - connect up the computer to the TV with an HDMI cable.
Select HDMI on the TV inputs.
Play the DVD on the computer, should appear on TV is Input is set. Sound may be a fiddle ~ check you PC sound settings if there is none.
The computer will usually show a blank screen when the HDMI is going elsewhere,
Good luck

Tip

USE YOUR LCD TV AS A COMPUTER MONITOR BY WAY OF HDMI.


To use your LCD TV as a monitor. look for a HDMI output on the computer and the TV. If you dont have a HDMI output on the computer, you will need to spend approx. $70 for video card and install it. I found "VisionTek Radeon HD 4350" to work fantastic.. Make sure your LCD TV has a HDMI INPUT. If not, you will need a newer TV. All thats needed now is a HDMI CABLE. The cable can be purchased anywhere computers are sold for between approx. $30 to $40. Depending on length. The cables can be found for much less ON-LINE. firefold.com has the cables for approx. $5. and they are the high quality gold plated cables. Now plug the cable into the computer and the TV and then using your tv remote, switch to HDMI and your tv is now a computer monitor. "Note"you may have to make adjustment on computer for display size and quality. My LCD TV is a 46" and the video card described above supports HD full screen. A wireless mouse and key board are a nice feature to add. If you like movies, you can get netflix and stream movies. there are many other sites for streaming and downloading. after doing this with my computer, i dont have a cable bill any more..I hope this tip helps.

HDMI audio cutting out


Sometimes it might be the TV, sometimes it might be that HDMI cable having issues with that certain TV. Your best bet would be to get another HDMI cable and see if that helps.

I have a 22" Westinghouse


Change the settings on your HDMI output to 720 progressive for resolution. The tv likely cannot handle the 1080 resolution, or the tv can only use interlaced (1080i or 720i) format.

I want to connect my computer to my Vizio TV to watch movies via netflix on my TV screen. If HDMI on TV end, what connection do I need to connect to the back of computer?


What "video-inputs" does your TV have:

* composite video (single cable for video, two cables for LEFT/RIGHT audio)
* component video (RED/GREEN/BLUE cables for video, plus RED/WHITE cables for stereo audio)
* DVI or VGA input
* HDMI input
* S-Video (similar to PS/2 keyboard/mouse, in size, and "round" shape)

What outputs does your computer's video-card have:

* composite (post-and-ring)
* S-Video
* DVI
* VGA
* HDMI

Just match them up.

Trying to hook compaq presario laptop to philips lcd digital tv


hey fox,
sounds to me like a connection problem. If the compaqs output is vga, you need to convert the input (tv side ) to hdmi, component, s-vidio... what ever you can find. Typically when you hook up your computer to a flat screen or such, its best to try to use the hdmi ports or the rpg. But if thats not available you need to take the outout from your laptop ( whatever type that might be and input it into your flat screen tv. If you input laptop into tv under ( eg..HDMI) then when you VIEW it you need to select the correct source on your flat screen. Such as hdmi or pcmi or rpg.I know that the do sell alot of cables that adapt from one type of connection to another. Typically only one cable is required from the laptop to the flat screen. If you think about it you are only using the flat screen as a monitor.

How to play movies from computer on tv?


if your tv has vga in, then you need a vga to vga cable (like a screen wire) then change the resolution in the settings of windows (put 800X640 resolution before you plug tv so that you can know what is supported)

if it doesent then you cant do anything other than buying a video card with hdmi or dvi (with a dvi to hdmi) with a hdmi cable then plug it in (will auto detect)
