You’ve asked us how you can use your TV as a monitor, so we’ve prepared this quick & easy guide to help!
Step 1: Check the compatibility
Before you begin, it’s important to check if your TV and computer are compatible. Here’s a couple of things to keep in mind:
Port: See if your TV and computer have suitable HDMI ports. If you have a Tesla TV, don’t worry: all of our TV models have HDMI ports. Also, Tesla monitors, as well as our TeslaBook 9 laptop, both have HDMI ports.
Screen resolution: It’s important to check if your TV supports the resolution you want, if you’re going to be using it as a monitor. All Tesla TVs support full HD (1920×1080) resolution.
Cable length: Make sure you have a HDMI cable that is long enough, so you can connect the devices.
Step 2: Connect the TV and the computer
After you’ve checked the compatibility, follow these steps to connect the TV and the computer:
- Turn off both the TV and the computer.
- Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the corresponding TV port, and the other end into the computer port.
- Turn on the TV and change the source to HDMI.
- Turn on the computer.
Step 3: Adjust the settings
After the computer is connected to the TV, you’ll probably have to adjust the settings to get the best possible picture quality. Here’s some advice:
Resolution: Go to screen settings on your computer, and choose the optimal resolution for your TV.
Aspect ratio: If you think the image is distorted or not properly scaled, set the aspect ratio on your TV or computer.
Screen settings: Adjust the brightness, contrast, and other screen settings in order to get the image quality you want.
Step 4: Enjoy the bigger screen
After you’ve set everything up, you can now enjoy the big screen: watching movies, playing games, or working on important projects has never been easier.
Using your TV as a monitor can be a great way to utilize the big screen for various purposes. Simply follow this step-by-step guide, and you should have no problems connecting the TV and the computer, so you can enjoy even better visual experience.
