VIDEO AND AUDIO FROM COMPUTER TO ROKU TV

Post by nanirdjeff » Thu Dec 21, 2017 10:15 pm

Is there an easy way to get the video and audio from a computer to a smart TV. I have a TCL * ROKU smart tv. All of the items are on a home network. Everything is HARD WIRED, I do not like WIFi as a connection. So far I have been unable to get anything to work. Any suggestions?

Run a HDMI cable from the computer to the tv. :watchingtv

A visual check of my computer shows that my current video card will not work - it does not have a HDMI connection/slot. So over the holidays/new year will upgrade. I thank you for your replies.

I am using aVGA conection to connect my computer to my Panasonic TV. TV is 30dig, and it might not work with a larger TV. Jess out in California.

This is an update from my earlier posts - I now have a video/audio card that has a HDMI out connection - However, all I get is a picture of my computer screen - with the only items showing are the symbols/logos that are displayed on the bottom line of the computer screen - it does not show my DESK TOP items - my computer is a TCL*ROKU 4K 55 INCH. The HDMI cable is plugged directly into a HDMI SLOT from the computer to the TV - any further suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong?

Problem solved. I had not set my computer to show the output on TWO SCREENS. Once I had done this, everything worked. Problem solved.
