Connect Computer To Tv Through Serial Port A/v Cable

How will be the performance if we connect computer to tv through serial port a/v cable?


Probably pretty bad. Both rs-232 and composite video are antiquated and considered legacy standards for computers. You don't say exactly what you're doing, but try to avoid using those deprecated connections if possible.

Any Way To Use Serial Port In Safe Mode ?

I have an older ibm (thinkpad 500?) Using windows 2000 that crashes randomly. I only use this computer to run an automatic key machine in my truck that uses the serial com port. The computer runs fine in safe mode, but i can't link it to the key machine because the serial port is disabled in safe mode. Is there any way to enable the serial com port in safe mode?

Serial / Com Port Device Managing

Ok i have an old old ibm thinkpad laptop that has one physical serial port. I have a program that uses the serial port but the program says it is in use. Now in device manager under com ports in the adavanced port settings there is a list of com port numbers listing 1 through 256. This is where i get lost. If i have one physical serial port then why is there a list of 256? Can i share this one port with whatever is using it currently and how? I just want to disable whatever is using this com1 port and use it just for this program. But if i cant then i need to share it somehow. Ive messed with the list of com ports changing them to higher numbers but when i go to chose that particular com port in the program it says that one is in use.

Serial Port Usb Conversion

I have a microsoft sidewinder ffb pro joystick but it is the older serial port version, it way seem a little pointless to do this but is there such a thing as a serial to usb converter? If so how much are they and will i need to download any later drivers to support the joystick under this port?

Serial Port Communication Issue

I have two identical mb's both using xp pro w/sp2
They are the foxconn n570sm2aa. With two different serial devices (a fta receiver and a rf signal level meter) i have to first disable the serial port, then re-enable it to be able to communicate with either device. If i don't, i get a error message. My previous mb had a nforce2 chipset and used 2k. I had no issue with two different fta receivers using the serial port. With another piece of test equipment, there is a different problem. The software locks up after 5 seconds after hitting the 'start' button to try to connect with the device (after the s/w is opened). I believe this is aseparate issue since the disable/enable doesn't help. (There was no issue with the previous mb and o/s. )

Any ideas about why i have to disable, then re-enable the port everytime?
Btw; no conflicts in dm and it is the stock windows driver that is loaded.

How To Install Pci Serial Port Card ?

My pci serial port cards were fried by a lightening strike.couldn't buy the same combo (1 x 3 port card and 1 x 1 port card) so i installed two 2nd hand cards - 1 x 2 port card and 1 x 1 card and decided to used the onboard serial port to make up for the other lost port. Windows 2k detected the cards and tried to install them.couldn't find any drivers on the c drive or installation disk. Dial up is a total nightmare for this machine. I can't find any detailed tutorials or step by step info on how to install a pci serial port card. Do you need to obtain and install drivers (can't seem to located them as negligable info on card itself) or aren't they needed and instead you cancel any automatic attempt to install new device and just go to another area of the computer and configure that?

Do I Need To Buy An Adapter For Hdmi Cable To Plug Into Dvi Port?

I bought a cable to connect my ps3 to my desktop monitor. It is a hdmi to dvi cable. My monitor has a dvi and d-sub port. Even though the cable i got says it is hdmi to dvi it will only connect to the d-sub port (the d-sub is smaller and blue and the hdmi is larger and white). Do i need to buy an adapter to allow the hdmi cable to plug into the dvi port or am i doing something else wrong entirely. When i turn on the ps3 nothing comes up. I tried holding the on button to reset the ps3 display settings to hdmi but nothing happened. I suspect i need to buy the adapter but i wanted to confirm before i go buy it. My monitor is a hanns g hi221d. I'm pretty sure my monitor should be compatible but i'm sure someone knows alot better than me.

How Does Display Port Connect To Mini Dp ?

I might go for the brand new 5970 for my eyefinity setup, and i see the connections on the rear of the card are 2 dvi-d and 1 minidp connector. I have three dell 2408's, that all come with display port standard, but how does the display port connect to the minidp on the rear of the 5970 ? I hope to god i don't need one of those $100 active adapters, that's why i got the 2408's because they already had display port standard. I would think there might be a dongle or converter inside the box with the card ?

Connect Pc To Tv Using Vga Cable

How do i connect my pc to a tv using a vga cable ?

There are vga to tv converters (svga cables(*) are only usable if ur computer has a svga-out (*), and i believe (only 90 percent sure) they don't carry high def video) but they are rather expensive:

Try aiming for hdmi when u buy a new device. Hdmi is a great connective system, it carries both hd-video and sound and is easily switchable by using a hdmi-switch. Hdmi is also used in all types of modern home-entertainment appliances and also in computers and monitors so it's the best (wired) connectivity system available today.correction: svga is a video-standard, not a connectivity standard. Sometimes svga is confused with s-video. S-video is a connectivity standard (cable) that only carries normal density video just like for instance scart:


The only high definition connectors a comp can have for as far as i know are:
- Vga-out
- Dvi-out

This might be a cool solution if u have a hd-tv with hdmi in, see the video:

Although u would need to find a way to keep using ur monitor, if u would want to do that, like a vga splitter or something. Or just buy a new monitor because those converters and cables and stuff are quite costly. Or upgrade ur graphical card to have 2 dvi outputs (there are cheaper dvi to hdmi adapters) (*) should be s-video.

Connect Two Laptops With Ethernet Cable

Connecting two laptops via ethernet cable is troublesome. I tried creating homegroup, it got connected in laptop with win7(ultimate) but in win7(home basic), it asks for enabling ipv6 protocol ( but when i go for enabling it, it is not happening). When should i do? Can i connect them via bluetooth and transfer my data through?

Answer:- more then likely you will use to computer requires a crossover cable to connect the two. Not the more common straight through. I would user a network router. Or if you already have one then look into a switch (home routers should have switches built it).

Connect Printer Using Long Usb Cable

Better way to connect printer and scanner? I am using printer and scanner in my house. Due to space restriction, i am not able to keep both in the same place. Then i thought of moving the scanner / printer to next room or near by convenient place and i bought a lengthy usb cable. Now with that new usb cable my computer is not detecting the either printer nor scanner. Can any one suggest a better hardware arrangement to move printer / scanner at least 15-20 feet. Recently i have seen belkin home base, seems it is very expensive.

Cable To Connect Netbook To Big Screen Tv

What type cable can i use to connect my acer aspire one netbook to big screen tv?

Answer:- it depends on the t. V. I believe your netbook has a vga port so you should be able to use that, most t. Vs have a vga port. If your tv only has a dvi port you could get a vga to dvi adapter. Cables, click on vga or dvi depending on what you decide to use: http://bit. Ly/7ca4yw
