What adaptor do i need to be able to plug my laptop and internet to my PT-53TW53g panasonic color proj sys


You don't need an adapter if your laptop has a DVI port. Simply connect the laptop's DVI port to the TV's Digital In port and ensure the laptop is outputting a standard 720*480, 1280*720 or 1920*1080 resolution. If your laptop doesn't have a DVI output then you will need a DVI to HDMI converter cable. Connect the HDMI end to the laptop and the DVI end, of the adapter, to the DVI cable.

DVI to HDMI


HDMI and DVI use the same encoding scheme for video purposes- the only difference is HDMI can carry audio signals and therefore have different connectors- so it is not like the lack of a picture signal is because you are using two different cables (HDMI and DVI). In theory the DVI to HDMI adapter should work.
Is there a possibility that the adapter is defective? Any bent or missing pins?
How long are the cables? If they are of poor quality, a digital signal can be lost at 20 feet. Again, in theory.
The only other thing I can thing of, off the top of my head is to ask, did you change the input selection on your t.v.'s display screen to go from the input source that you get your t.v stations from... to the input source of the Play Station?

I have a 51UWX20B TV. I want to get a Blu-Ray DVD


Yes there are a few options for you to make the link between your TV and the BluRay DVD player, first there are adapter cables made with HDMI plug on one end and DVI plug on the other end, remember that with this cable you will have to link the audio signal with another cable because DVI only passes video. Second if you cannot find the adapter cable in your area you also can use the component video(red,blue,green)instead of the other adapter cable,that is if your TV has component video ports, and again audio will have to be linked with another cable because component video only passes video signal. Good luck !

Hook up a lg blueray player to mitsubishi medallion 65"


Yes, there is an adapter which will take the hdmi output of the blue-ray and convert it to dvi. You will also need to connect the blue-ray audio out (rca jacks) since the hdmi is both audio and video (digital) and the dvi is video only.

Sony KF50we60 hdmi-dvi sound cuts when plugging into a ht-sf2300


DVI = HDMI without the audio connectors. So basically you need to connect your audio in some different way, PS3s allow you to keep your video signal as HDMI and change the Audio signal to component, so that is one way or doing it, not sure if the blue ray players allow you to do this though.

I can not connect my pc to my samsung dlp


Not all TVs have video inputs to directly connect the computer output. Some computers have video cards that have separate outputs(usually S-Video) which you can use. Or you can purchase a video card that has the proper outputs.

If your computer has a DVI output, and your TV has an HDMI imput, there are cheap adapters that you can buy, as HDMI can process the DVI signal directly, just the cable is different.

If you need more assistance, we would need to know the models/outputs/inputs of both the computer and the TV.

Best Regards
