Connecting Laptop or Computer to Your TV

Watching a movie when it is in a big screen is definitely something that we enjoy. This is the very main reason by movie houses exist. If you want to watch a movie or a bunch of pictures to your friends and family from your computer, perhaps it would be so much better if you can view it on a bigger screen just like that of you television. It is a good thing that you can connect your computer to your television so you can enjoy movies and photos with the entire family.

There are quite a number of ways to connect your laptop or computer to your television. With these ways, the quality of the video and pictures can vary from one to the other. This is why you should choose that one that produces the best quality for your specific devices.

Here are three simple steps to help you go through this.
null

1)      Know the type of connections and ports that your computer and television have. Take a look at the most common ports below:

  • RCA/Composite. This is the oldest connection available; it is also the one with the lowest quality. These are the wires that bear white, red, and yellow connections. White and red is for the left and right analog audio, respectively, while yellow is for the composite video.
  • S-Video. Also known as Super Video, this port has a better quality than that of the Composite, although this also a rather outdated type of connection. The two types of S-Video ports are the one that contains 4 pins and the other one with 7. And because its name is S-Video, this connection is only used for video. You will have to connect an audio cable for audio to work.
  • VGA. Video Graphics Array is what most of today’s televisions and televisions have. This is the preferred method of connection if you have an HDTV. There are older television sets, however, that do not support this connection so you will have to get a computer to television converter. You will also have to use an additional audio because it does not support audio, just like that of the S-Video.
  • DVI. Digital Video Interface connections are found in most laptop and HDTVs. As its name says, this type of connection can only be used for digital televisions. You will also need an audio cable.
  • HDMI. This is the highest quality connection available to date. While most HDTVs have this port, most laptops and computers do not. But if you laptop does have this, this is the most preferred way to use it.

2)      Once you find a port that exists in both of your devices, you will need the right connector cable to connect them. If you do not find a common port between the two devices, you will have to make use of adapters.

3)      Once you have physically connected the two devices, turn to your television and select the external input. Depending on the type of connection, it may be AV1 or HDMI1. This should be similar to selecting input when connecting your DVD player.
