How do I connect my computer to my TV?

You can connect your TV to your computer using a VGA, DVI, S-Video, HDMI, DisplayPort or Thunderbolt connection.

You will need to know:

  • What kind of video output sockets you have on your computer
  • What kind of video input sockets you have on your TV

You can find this information from the documentation that came with your TV and computer.

If your PC and TV have different socket types, you may be able to purchase an adapter to convert one type to another.

For information and support, please contact your device manufacturer.

Connecting wirelessly

Some computers can be connected to a TV wirelessly using devices such as the Apple TV or Google Chromecast. Some of our My5 apps also support Chromecast - see My5 updates for more details.
