If you have a YCBCR/YPBPR input on your computer, then you can connect a laptop to the computer and display your laptop on your computer screen. However, you need the right equipment to make the connection. You will need to buy a YCBCR/YPBPR to male VGA cable. Once connected, you can use your video capture software that came with your YCBCR/YPBPR input to display and capture what you do on your laptop. This is very useful when putting together presentations.
