OT Laptop to LCD TV

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by Gordon MacPherson, Nov 2, 2007.

  1. I am not sure where to go for advice but hope that the group may help. I am
    going to buy a LCD TV - probably a Sony Bravia KDL 40X2000. I have a Dell
    Latitude D410 laptop. I would like to be ab le to hook the two up so that I
    can view JPEGS FULL SIZE on the TV. I am told that this may be difficult to
    achieve but that there may be adaptors that will do the trick.

    I would welcome any advice on how to do this or where else I might go for

    I've heard that (some?) Bravias have a media slot. Then you may need
    no computer at all.

    Additionally, (cheap and) decent DVD players have memory slots and/or
    USB ports, and may show your JPEGs at the maximal monitor's
    resolution. (At least Philips 5982 can.)

    AFAIK, laptops which can connect to monitors digitally are quite rare
    (if they exist at all).

    Hope this helps,

    Seems almost all newer lcd style tvs (even smaller ones) now actually have a
    standard VGA connector. You switch the tv's input from Tuner, thru Composite
    Input(s) to VGA input etc. to use. One's I've seen so far seem to handle up
    to at least 1280x1024 resolution. Also seems almost all laptops have a vga
    connector for an external monitor so it basically becomes use TV as laptop
    monitor. Is that what you want? IF so nothing to it but money :)

    I often take my laptop out to a buddies and hook it to his 42" tv to play
    various pc games, looks great.

    VGA is an analogue connector. There is quite a difference.

    Sure. But if you wanted to base your answer on the subject only, you
    should not have inserted your reply in THIS particular place of the
    thread ;-). You replied to my posting, which was discussing some
    highest-image-quality connection options.


    P.S. My current monitor is connected via VGA cable, and suffer the
    result a lot.
