The port you're looking for looks like this:

It's called an SVHS or stereo VHS output port, and with an SVHS cable should be able to be plugged into a cable box.

Note that this is a ONE WAY PORT - it takes a signal FROM the notebook, not TO the notebook. If you want to view television pictures on your notebook you will need further hardware. This port is only for viewing your computer output through a television or other device.

I have a philips tv model 47pfl5704d. what cable

IF, your PC indeed supports TV out, then the Cable usually is SVGA or RCA, connectors. The PC must be configured to activate BOTH screens, ie: enable desktop, to be spanned or mirrored, , the Resolution on TV should only generally be set to 800x600. The correct Drivers must be installed. Must connect to TV before ya start PC too.

I just hooked up my HP Pavilion 9000 Laptop to my Vizio TV and put the TV on correct setting. It is not working on the TV, any ideas? I went on Display setup and kept trying to connect but it says the...

If your laptop has a VGA port, your Vizio needs to have a VGA port too so you can use a standard VGA monitor cable.

If your laptop has a DVI port, you hook it up to the Vizio using a DVI-to-HDMI cable.

And if your laptop has an HDMI port, you hook it up using a standard HDMI cable.

Hope this helps.

How can I view my pc on tv using an hdmi cable and a comcast digital cable box? My tv does not have an hdmi input.

The hdmi port on the Comcast box is an output only and cannot be used as an input from the general public. If your tv has a DVI output, there are DVI to HDMI adapters that can make the hook up....other than that, there is the super video cable but you will still have to run audio through a seperate line.

Little Experiment

fun experiment with relic, monitory.
the M90 is for PCs, not TV (settopsboxs)
  • Connections( not sound)
    1 x display / video - VGA - 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) - 1
see that VGA there, that is ALL this monitor supports.
what are you attempting, what is the unstated goal to reach?
no set top box stated
no service provider to the box stated.
so you have no TV and want to use a M90 computer monitor
that it?
SCART is very old EU system, (europe)
21 pin connector
you will need a Scart to VGA adapter.
buy one.
random example. (home made not easy ever work small coax cables/) I can but you, ? It also may need special terminations
no distances stated.
why not just get a real TV? & use HDMI, for ever....

Problem hdmi connection

Hello, I'm from the Netherlands and I had the exact same problem with my philips lcd...

So what I did, was upgrading the software of my videocard (,this resolved my problem of giving a error on my laptop and restarting.

Then I got the message on my tv: "video not supported' , this I don't know exactly how i resolved this, but i tried fn+f4 a couple times. If that doesn't work you have to do something with the nvidia control panel (right click on desktop).

So now i had picture, but no sound.

To enable sound from your laptop to your tv you have to go to control panel>sound> set the SPDIF to your standard sounddevice and tick the box with wma audio something, tick out the other boxes.

I hope this will resolve some of your problems and others who have the same problem.
