    How to connect my laptop to tv through cable box with HDMI?

    I bought a new laptop with an HDMI port but my tv doesn't have the HDMI. However my digital cable box does. I'm trying to hook up my laptop to the cable box so I can use my tv as a computer monitor but I can't figure out how to get the picture to show up. Does it need to be on a certain channel? Is this even possible in the first place?

    click the windows button
    in the search programs and files search bar type in HDMI
    then something should pop up that has four options
    "computer only""duplicate""extend"and "projector only"
    click one of those options

    side note i don't let it search i just type HDMI in quickly and press enter.

    I also just found out try pressing the windows key and p at the same time

    Is the cable box HDMI port an HDMI in, or HDMI out? If its an "out" port (Which is more likely), it won't work. Most cable boxes don't function as an AV switcher.

    If for some reason it does work, try the suggestion above.

    Thanks guys, the issue was that the HDMI was an out port. I'm well aware of how to change the screen to a projector, I've been using an S-Video cable but I just got a new laptop which only has HDMI while my tv only has S-Video. Is there any way to hook up my laptop to my tv (which only has S-Video and the red/yellow/white composite input)?

    If it doesn't have an HDMI port is it even a HDTV?

    It is an HDTV. It's pretty old though, probably like 6 or 7 years old.

    not easy/cheap. hdmi is digital and s-video is analog. So you would have to buy some "conversion box"
    Thats life, son!
