Well, this is a real short hack (or a howto really) for hooking up your TV to your computer.
First, you will need a dual-monitor graphic adaptor or extra graphic adaptors. (1 per monitor) If you don’t have one, go buy one with lots of RAM over at your favorite electronics store.
*If you have a laptop, you don’t need a dual-monitor, just use the S-Video or the video outputs. You will need to hit that monitor shaped button along with Fn button couple times usually to make the screen show.
You can also get DVI to TV cables if you want better resolution but I simply hooked up via S-Video since most TVs support that and I don’t feel like shelling out another 30 bucks for the cables.
After you have your graphic adaptor installed, hook up your PC Monitor and your TV as shown above. (The picture shows how I hooked up S-Video but even better if you have that DVI connectivity on your HDTV or DLPTV. You can also hook up to another monitor if you’d like. I only used TV example since I only have 1 monitor.)
If your graphic adaptor comes with some software, install that too.
Now go to your Display Settings. Click on #2 and select on “Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor” and hit “Apply”.
You should now be able to drag any of your windows into your TV and enjoy SiteHoppin or watch YouTube videos in full screen.
Here’s a video explaining the whole thang:
