How to Connect a Philips TV to a PC


Philips TV sets have a full range of features including a broad range of inputs. Since many of them offer both High-Definition Multimedia Interface and Video Graphics Adapter inputs, connecting a PC is a relatively easy task. An HDMI connection is the easiest because it requires just a single cable. Since Philips TV sets have large, high-definition screens, they are excellent for sharing a larger version of your computer’s output so that you can use it to make presentations to customers about products or services.
Using an HDMI Cable

  1. Press the “Power” buttons on your computer and Philips TV to turn them off. Unplug them from the wall.
  2. Connect a HDMI cable to your computer’s HDMI port. Since it will only go in the correct way, ensure that you orient it correctly and do not force it.
  3. Insert the plug on the other end of the cable into an open HDMI port on your Philips TV.
  4. Plug both your TV and computer back into the wall and press their respective “Power” buttons to turn them on.
  5. Press the “Source” button on the TV’s remote control until the HDMI port to which you connected your PC is selected. You might need to press it a few times to cycle through to the correct input.
