I’m trying to connect my TV to my laptop. I want to play a movie on my laptop and view it on my TV.
At the back of my laptop I have a port which has 15 holes in a D shape, I’m pretty sure it’s for connecting to a normal monitor.
I also have a cable which has 2 identical ends which could both fit into my laptop port. This cable has 14 pins (one is missing on the middle line, 2nd from the left).
My TV has lots of differnt ports which are confusing to me. The only TV port that can fit the cable is a “D-SUB” port.
My question is: How do I get things set up and working? I’m totally new to flat screen TVs and all of the various formats etc. My laptop is connected to the TV, but when I go through the chanels I can’t see my computer screen on my TV screen.
