Hi - I want to connect a Philips Freevents laptop to a Panasonic Viera TV - can someone recommend the correct cable. And will iPLayer work on the TV by doing this?Thanks
Check TV has * 1 x S-Video In * 1 x PC/VGA In Check laptop has VGA out socket click here or S video out (probably VGA)Connect with vga cable click hereyou may have to rely on laptop speakers or connect speaker to the laptop speaker out if no audio in on TV.
All of Panasonic Viera TVs have a “PC Input Mini D-Sub 15-Pin Connector, which you can connect to the Philips Freevents laptop via the VGA output socket using a 15 pin VGA / SVGA Male-Male CableYou would also need a 3.5mm Stereo Jack to 2 RCA Phono Audio Cable for the sound click hereOnce you have connected the VGA and audio cable, set the TV to PC source / input using the “Remote Control Source / Input button”You now have to set the laptop to access the external display on the laptopUsing the “FN” key (Function) and the “CRT/LCD” key look at the top of keyboard (F) keysHold down the FN key and press the CRT/LCD key onceDisplay will change as follows: - Press once laptop display onlyPress again external display onlyPress again both laptop and external displayYou must hold down the FN key each time you press the CRT/LCD keyYou should set the laptop to show “both laptop and external display”If set to “external display” the laptop will default back to the “laptop display” once you power up or reboot the laptop, you will than have to keep setting the laptop to access the external display
Great - thanks! Sorted!
