Does your HDTV have a VGA connector? If not you will have to use S-video to component video adaptor or HDMI adaptor.

ACER AZ1620-UR10P HOW CAN i VIEW MOVIES ON THE TV


With the Desktop being an all in one it is doubtful it has video output features. If it did you could always hook the Computer up to the TV directly with cables. However, the other option is to stream the video from the PC to your TV with something like this.

I have a tv screen which i use for my computer.I have the hdmi cords going from the video card on the back to my tv.why is it not working


Hi,
Make sure your t.v. screen supports your display card resolution. Try lowering your display card resolution in display settings. Make sure your t.v. is set to AVI.

Best wishes,

Dell pc to tv hook up


Most video cards on computers output progressive scan, and your flat screen tv may be interlaced. This would cause the horizontal hold to keep rolling.

Hook up a Sony VGC RA 840G desktop to a Samsung 46 inch TV


Some TV's don't have a VGA input. S-Video cable is more common. Look on the back of your computer an see if you have an S-Video jack. If you have a TV compatible output on your computer, such as an S-video jack, just take an S-video cable and connect it to your computer and your TV. If you do not, then attach your VGA end of your adapter to your computer and use the RCA, S-video or Component Video cable to attach to your TV. After you've made all the connections, make sure you are on the correct TV video input. Press the input button on your TV or remote until you see your computer's signal.

Tv screen attatchment


YOU HAVE TO CHECK YOUR DISPLAY CARD FOR THIS WHETHER IT HAS THE OPTION TO CONNECT TO TV, or
you can use hard disk player available in the market, to connect to tv or monitor for watching movies etc.

Cant find out how to use the s video out on my extensa 5420


s video stands for separe video... it provides a way for your pc display to be proyected on a tv (tv output) with analog video... you need to have the appropiate cable with a 4 pin mini din connector that has 2 separate channels.. your tv should have the supported interface... when you have your computer hooked up to your tv press the tv/video botton to look for your auxuliary display and and one of the channels should show you your computer desktop.

Try to connect tv as a monitor


Does the desktop have an S-video output on its video card? If it does, you only have to get either an S-video cable and hook it up from the computer to the TV, or get an S-video cable plus an S-Video to composite adapter, and hook it up.

For the video card to output to S-Video, you may need to fiddle with something in the control panels, or unplug the regular monitor and reboot (at least on my NVidia 5600 cards, this forces the card into using the S-Video output).

Personally I think you will be very disappointed. Using normal computer applications while using your TV as a monitor will be basically impossible; the text will be too small and blurry. Web browsing on picture-and-headline type pages will be OK, but everything else? Instant headache. Most applications that are designed to be accessed via a TV screen instead of a TV monitor have huge font sizes and lots of contrast (cf. the TiVo's interface, for example); they're designed much differently than desktop apps. You may want to look into screen-magnification apps to make it easier on your eyes.

regards,

hope

Audio/Video questions


as to your audio the only way for you to get 5.1 is to get a sound card that supports it i think the computer you have only supports 2.1. you can find a cheap sound card at places like tigerdirect or newegg, also try ebay. same goes for your video you need to find one with a tv output.
