Question about Televison & Video
I'd like to watch movies from my PC on my TV, but I don't know how to connect the two. Can anyone tell me what cables i need to buy?
Depending on your laptop connections, they will decide what adapters you need. Just take the laptop to a Radio Shack or similar store and they can get you the right connections. You will need an adapter for the video and the audio separately most likely. My laptop, I use the headphone jack for audio and I have the two adapters connecting to an RGB jack. You also want to buy some extra RGB cables for more length between the laptop and tv. You may need some double ended female connectors for those too.
Then in order to get the tv to be a second screen, you need to go into your video driver. I use nvidia. You can access it from a right click on the desktop>properties>settings. Depending on your driver, you can extend the image on a second screen which is what I do or you can also have the same image on both screens.
Let me know if you have any other questions, and I would be glad to help you out.
