The Alienware M17 laptop has two types of video connectors. One is HDMI which is used to connect the laptop to a HDTV. The other connector is VGA, which is used to connect an external monitor, which might or might not be a TV. Both connectors cannot be used to accept video from an external source, but instead can only output video to an external device. To connect the M17 to a coaxial display device, you need a coaxial to VGA adaptor.
