Connecting your JVC television to a laptop allows you to enjoy digital media from your computer on a larger screen. You may also enjoy an improved audio experience, depending on your TV sound system.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Identify your laptop’s video output port. Look for an S-video, VGA, DVI or HDMI port. HDMI is the only port that connects audio and video without requiring an additional connection.

  2. 2

    Identify your JVC television’s video input ports. Look for an S-video, VGA, DVI or HDMI port.

  3. 3

    Purchase the appropriate connector cable based on your port types. For example, purchase an S-video-to-S-video connector cable if both your laptop and TV have S-video ports. Purchase a VGA-to-RCA connector cable if your computer uses a VGA output and TV requires an RCA video input.

  4. 4

    Insert the TRS end of your RCA-to-TRS connector cable into the headphone or line-out port on your laptop. This will transfer audio from the laptop to your JVC television. Ignore this step if you are using an HDMI connection.

  5. 5

    Insert the white and red plugs on the RCA end of your RCA-to-TRS connector into the TV's RCA input port.

  6. 6

    Insert the corresponding ends of your video connector cable into the laptop’s video output and TV video input, respectively.

  7. 7

    Turn your television to the corresponding input channel or mode to view your laptop’s on-screen contents.

Tips and warnings

  • You can always ask a sales representative at an electronics retailer for help when purchasing your video connector cable.
