In this article I would like to share my experience on connecting various home appliances and suggest starting with how to connect a laptop to a TV.
When I bought my first laptop, I have a long timerejoiced at its mobility and compact size. But after a while I had a desire to watch my favorite films and photos on the big screen of the TV, and I began to look for ways how to connect the laptop to the TV.
Having typed in the search engine: "How to connect a laptop to the TV?", I received a large number of answers and recommendations. I will try to systematize instructions received by me.
We check both devices for the presence of an input and an output for their connection. Modern technologies offer us three main types of ports and connectors, these are:
1. Four-pin analog video connector - S-video. By using this connector, you only need one cable to connect the devices.
2. The connector used for normal connection to the computer monitor is VGA. It has fifteen contacts and uses analog technology. The multimedia data transmitted through this connector does not lose its qualities. This is the simplest method and the most common.
3. Digital rectangular port with 24 contacts - DVI. On laptops it is quite rare, but in stationary computers it is used very often and starts to displace the standard VGA connector.
In my case, the laptop and the TV turned out to beVGA connector. Since I use the Windows 7 operating system, I did not have connectivity problems, because this operating system practically defined and configured everything.
And if all the same, after connecting the VGA cable to theboth devices, the image did not appear on the big screen, you need to go to the "Control Panel", then in the "Screen Settings" and in this section manually specify the extension settings and the screen to which you want to display the image.
Here we have in short form disassembled how to connect the laptop to the TV, proceed to the next case - how to connect the TV to wifi.
Finally there was such a convenient thing, like wi-fi. What does this direct connection mean?
With it without the help of wires it is possible to connectamong themselves a lot of various devices, for example, two or more computers (laptops), smart phones, laptops and TV. In general, there are a lot of options for building your small network, and besides all of them without providing an access point and a router. The connection setup is very simple, and the technology itself is completely safe, because it is based on WPA2 ™ encryption. In general, this technology works by analogy with Bluetooth connections, only at a speed of 12 times faster and with a larger coverage area.
Before you connect the TV to the wifi, Itried to connect it through a smartphone. First, for TV, you need to purchase an additional adapter (so that it can receive and view incoming signals). During the connection of the device, exchanging information about themselves, check the compatibility of their work and request a password for the connection. In my case, the virtual access point is a smartphone, since it is a functional device.
Even in this article you could describe how to connect the TV to the router, but this is such a laborious process that most users prefer to contact specialists.
An inexperienced user should pay particular attention togive such a factor as the compatibility of devices among themselves and the propiska of the correct data redirection route. The main point is to configure the parameters that meet the requirements.
It is possible to sum up (my opinion) - adjustmentconnections should be entrusted to specialists. Since connecting a TV to a router is a very serious process. But if you are not too lazy and find detailed instructions on how to connect the TV to the router, you can safely consider yourself a specialist and configure the connection.
