Hi krahul17,

I see that you want to connect a BigTV to your Y560 Laptop, I can give you a few details on what you can do to conenct a bBig TV to your Laptop.

- Your Y560 has an HDMI port on it and you can use HDMI to connect an LCD TV to your Y560 Laptop.

- In Windows7 lower right side of your task bar you will see the speaker icon right click on it and it will give you options, see below image.

- Click on Playback Devices

- You should see the sound window inside the window you will see a list of audio devices on your system, you should see your HDMI first on the List with a Picture of an LCD TV next possibly will be your speaker which is set as the Default device the last should be Realtek High Definition audio device.

- Right click on the HDMI and select set as Default Device once set as default device your HDMI video and audio should work but if you connected your Laptop to the TV before you changed this settings you will need to restart you Laptop for the changes to take effect on your system and also make sure that the input for your TV is also set to HDMI to make everytihng work.

- And if you will be going back to using you Laptop only you may need to go back to the sound window to set the speakers as your Default device to make the audio come out from your Laptop Speakers.

I hope that this will be of help regarding your concern, have a nica day.

Press the "Input" or "Source" button on the TV remote to select the computer. On the computer, right-click on an empty space on the desktop and select "Screen Resolution". It should show 2 screens. Select the TV, then, from the dropdown menu, select "Duplicate screen".

I cant seem to get my lenova ideapad to work on flatscreen

Are you using HDMI to connect? In my experience, given a video or audio problem related to home theater, HDMI is responsible 9/10 times. First of all, make sure your TV is set to be displaying the HDMI port your computer is plugged into (can usually changed with the INPUT button on the TV remote). Most laptops have a key that looks like a screen on it. In may be printed in a different color on one of the F1-F12 keys; that just means you need to use the Fn key to activate it. This key opens the Windows display mode chooser dialog. It has some options, all of which I can't recall off the top of my head. I believe they are None, Laptop Only, Projector Only, Mirror, and Extend. Keep in mind that this method is not restricted to projectors (though it would work with them as well), and should also work with your TV. You'll want to choose either Mirror or Extend, depending on your preference. Try both and choose the one that works best for you.

If either I wasn't clear enough or totally missed the mark, just tell me and I'd be happy to fix the issue. ;-)

Hello,everyone!! i have lenovo ideapad y560 with inbuild tv tuner & also a connector wire to connect dish cable to laptop... but my question is that how do i watch tv on my laptop OR in which...


TV tuner cards allow you to view programming on a computer system. Although desktop computers allow you to install internal TV tuner cards, laptop systems do not have the available space for internal cards. Because of this, laptop computers have PCI express card slots. This slot allows you to install and remove (at your will) additional hardware, such as TV tuner cards.

  • TV tuner card
  • Driver installation CD
  • Software installation

  1. Locate the PCI express card slot (located on the side of your computer opposite the disc drive). Push in on the protective cover on the slot to unlock it from the case. It pops out slightly, allowing you to remove the card.
  2. Slide in the TV tuner into the PCI express card slot. The card clicks into place and a light blinks on when the card has connected successfully to the laptop computer.
  3. Insert the driver installation CD into the disc drive of the computer. Momentarily a driver installation wizard appears on the screen. Click "Next" on the welcome page, then accept the given license agreement. Choose "Next" two more times, then select "Install" and the drivers from the driver installation CD install onto the computer.
  4. Eject the driver installation CD and insert the software installation CD. This is the program you use to view the connected receiver. As with the driver installation CD, wait for the installation wizard to load up onto the screen. Accept the license agreement, leave the installation name and location blank, then click "Install" to install the software.
  5. Restart the computer. Upon restart the laptop is ready to begin using the TV tuner card.

How to use in built TV tuner in lenovo y560 laptop

In windows 7 - Windows Media Center will use it (NOT media PLAYER, media CENTER)
media center is actually wicked cool for watching TV because if you have cable, no more waiting for the listings pulls up to 2 weeks of listings from your provider, so you can schedule shows to be recorded, record series etc...very cool!
