How to Connect a Mitsubishi HD 1080 to a Laptop


Mitsubishi HD 1080 televisions have two basic options for connection to a laptop: HDMI and S-Video. High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) is a common connector used with high-definition (HD) devices that allows the transfer of both audio and video simultaneously. Separate video (S-video) transfers only video, so you must use a separate audio cable or external speakers if you do not want to rely on the laptop's internal speakers. HDMI is preferred over S-video, because it transfers both video and audio, but if your laptop only has an S-video out, then that is what you must use.

Things You'll Need

  • HDMI/ S-Video cable
  • Turn off both the Mitsubishi TV and the laptop.

  • Plug the connector cable, whether it is HDMI or S-video, into the output port on the laptop. Connect the opposite end of the cable to the input port on the back of the TV. There is only one port of each type on the back of the TV, and S-video and HDMI ports are different in size and shape, so don't worry about getting them.

  • Power on the laptop, then turn on the TV.

  • Press the “Input” button on either the remote control or on the TV set itself. This brings up a menu of the various input channels you have available. Select the input that you are using, by navigating to it with the arrow keys and then pressing “Enter.” The screen of your laptop now displays on your TV.
