How do I connect my LG LCD TV to my HP laptop? 

by on September 27, 2010

Q: I just bought an LG LCD TV and I want to hook it up to my HP laptop. I’ve been to 3 stores and got 4 different answers and have purchased 3 different cables that I have had to return. My laptop has a s-video port a VGA port and obviously several USB ports. My new TV has the following inputs/outputs

on the back
RF In (Antenna/Cable)
Component Video In (Y, Pb, Pr) + Audio
Digital Audio Out (Optical)
HDMI/HDCP Input (1.3 w/Deep Color)
RGB In (D-Sub 15pin) – PC
PC Audio Input
RS-232c In (Control/Service)

and the following on the side
HDMI/HDCP Input (1.3 w/Deep Color)
USB 2.0 (Music/Photo)
Headphone Out

I have hooked the TV up to a DVD player and a tuner but I would really like to hook up my TV to my computer because I don’t have cable and instead watch all my TV online. A guy at Futureshop says this can’t be done with my laptop and tried to sell me a new one! I have only had this laptop 18 months so there is no way I am replacing it.

Is there anything I can do to hook this up?
