The Panasonic Viera is a series of high-definition television sets with different types of video inputs for connecting components. To connect the video output from your laptop to the Panasonic, you'll need a standard VGA (video graphics array) cable that will attach to the D-sub 15-pin port on the edge of the Viera TV. Once the cable is connected, a simple hotkey combination turns off the laptop display and activates the output to the Panasonic. The hotkey combination varies depending on the laptop model.
