Watching television and movies on big screen is a real joy. Online TV is getting better and better every day. It is easy to watch internet channels on the big High-Definition screen. Quality of video and audio signals is very good.
There are many free online channels. Some of online channels require subscription for watching.
In this instructable I will show how to watch online TV and movies on 42 -inch LCD TV.
First, I installed wireless router. That way, I can place my laptop close to LCD TV and have internet on it without running messy CAT5 cable.
Then I connect one end of HDMI cable to output HDMI connector of my laptop.HDMI cable connects video and audio signals from laptop to the LCD TV. Therefore, we need only one cable for connecting both: audio and video.
It is also possible to connect your computer to TV with DVI cable. This way we have also high quality HD video on the screen since DVI cable connects digital video signal. DVI cable connects video signal only, so we will need additional cable to connect audio signal.We can use cable with mini audio jacks (3.5 mm or 2.5 mm) or cable with standard RCA connectors for connecting audio signal from your computer to TV.
In addition, there are two more options of connecting computer to the TV. This way we connect ANALOG video signal with VGA or S-video cable. Of course, these cables connect analog video signal only so we will need additional cable to connect audio. We can use cable with mini audio jacks (3.5 mm or 2.5 mm) or cable with standard RCA connectors for connecting audio signal from your computer to TV.
