Can I use my HDTV as a computer monitor?

Whether you can use your HDTV as a computer monitor depends on the available connections on your equipment.

To check whether you can use your HDTV as a computer monitor:

  1. Compare the connections on your HDTV with the connections on your computer.
  2. If the computer has an output that matches an input on the TV, you may be able to connect them. For example, many new HDTVs and laptops have HDMI ports. You may be able to connect these ports with an HDMI cable to use the HDTV as a monitor.

Not all computers or TVs support this feature. For more information, refer to the user manuals for your computer and TV.
