Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

No instructions! do i need a lead to detect tv signals?


Answers :

Well to your somewhat undetermined question if you are connecting to a tv say an hdtv certain graphics cards need to be hdcp compatible but in other instances no
By "TV" Signals, do you mean video signals? If so, the WIndows video player does a good job of playing most varieties. If you mean off air or cable TV signals, you'll need a receiver. Look at the Elgato, or similar brands. They plug into a USB port and are capable of receiving analog and/or HD ATSC signals, or cable signals. Keep in mind that digital cable signals are generally a mess to identify and sort out because they are on different digital channels and subchannels. You may need a digital to analog converter in front of your Elgato to keep from going nuts trying to fighure out where everything is.

I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 that I'm trying to connect to my very old TV (16 years). I'm going through the VCR. I thought I could connect the laptop's VGA to the RGB port on the VCR, tune to the right channel, adjust the display on the laptop & poof --- big screen monitor. Well, no such luck. Any help would be appreciated. Oh, it go directly to the TV, I would need to convert the PC's VGA to coaxial. I thought it would be easier going through the VCR's RGB.


No that will NOT work, first the PC's VGA doesn't have any "Channel" Second you must install Drivers for said VGA card, and the card MUST have a TV out connector either SVHS, or Composite, video out, or as of late HDMI. You Cannot "Receive" a VGA, si ... Toshiba Satellite L300-EZ1004V Notebook
