    Default Using the laptop thru the TV

    Does anybody know how to use a laptop thru the TV?
    i bought a USB to USB cable as i have a USB connection on my tv, but when i plugged them in it doesnt register. and the tv is set to take a USB device.

    Am i doing something wrong or do i have the wrong cable, or maybe something else?

    sometimes you have to tell the computer to output to a differnt output rather than or as well as the usb lead tho i would have thought that a laptop will only out put via hdmi(if u have it) s-video or vga?

    No usb will be for hard drives etc,you should have a tv connection on the laptop.

    Usually it will be a svga or vga connection - whichever one you have you will need to order a lead that will connect to your laptop and tv

    Eg something like this
