Trying to hook up magnVOX 15'' HD TV MONITOR and not sure abbout ports on back of pc


Answers :

Depending on the model of pc and what graphics card you may have. But generally, just match the color coded port to the color coded cable. VGA(blu), HDVI(long and white), Composite (white,yellow, red). If you are using VGA, or HDVI, you will need and additional cable to connect the audio from the pc to the TV. It has two male ends that look like headphone plugs that you plug into PC's green or blue audio ports. If you have a 7.1 audio card, you may want to used home entertainment system for audio but not being connected to the TV means you cannot record TV unless you have a TV tuner built in to PC.
