How to connect a TV to a computer?

Further setup consists of the following steps:

  • on the screen, find and click on the TV thumbnail, and then move it to the "Resolution" field. If this is not done, then the picture may not be clear, which will bring you inconvenience;
  • if you plan to use multiple displays for work, then you will need to select the "Multiple Displays" mode.

And also, we should not forget about the existence of various modes of operation, but some of them need additional settings:

  • the ability to display the desktop only on 1. In this case, the second display will automatically turn off, and the image will be broadcast only on the selected one;
  • possibility of duplication. This function allows you to simultaneously broadcast a picture on two displays. But keep in mind that if they have different resolutions, then the picture may be distorted on one of these monitors;
  • simultaneous screen resolution. In this case, we are talking about the ability to expand the desktop by 1 or 2. In such a situation, the PC desktop “occupies" two displays at once. As soon as the picture goes beyond the boundaries of one display, it will automatically switch to another. In order to make the work as correct as possible, as an option, you can transfer the display thumbnails in a special basic settings window.

Perhaps at first, it will be unusual for you, but in the future you will only see the advantages of this method. If you plan to connect your TV to your computer via a router, then prepare for the fact that you will need time to cope with this task yourself.
