Questions: How do I connect my laptop to my TV? In that case, I will always watch my videos, TVs or movies on the big screen in our hall. This question is haunting me for a long time. And I finally determined to cope with it.
First, I would like to list the benefits of connecting a laptop to TV for me:
1. Watching movies, podcasts, TV and videos on my biggest Plasma TV. Large Screen experience as watching in the cinema.
2. Meantime, we can surf the Internet freely with the tiny laptop on comfortable sofas or with a laptop stand.
3. Make a home theatre atmosphere with DIY popcorn.
4. Share wonderful screens with all your families
5. Video call with my families who are far away.
Thinking of this, I can’t help to resolve it in no time.
Part One. Before start, which materials do I need?
Find the right Port of my laptop and TV. There may be DVI Port, HDMI port, VGA port.
We need to find all our videos and audios ports of the laptop and TV. And if the port can’t be connected together, you may need an adapter cable. a DVI-to-HDMI adapter or a DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter. you might need to use an audio patch cable to connect the notebook’s audio to either the HDTV or a nearby set of speakers. Still, a direct, wired connection is the best method if you value speed over all else.
Apple TV is the best solution for Macbook user.
