I love watching Television. Well, who doesn’t? But some people can not afford it, while some just don’t wanna fill their rooms with machines. That is why, in this article we are going to show you how to turn a computer monitor into a TV screen
Internet is cool. I agree. But, Television will always remain Television. Internet can never replace it. Since childhood, we’ve all been watching our favourite shows on the Television and we still love to do so.
It’s true that every show is available to watch on the internet, but watching tens of episodes a day doesn’t give the feels that watching one episode every day does. And that’s not all. On the internet, people mostly pirate shows. But on the Television, we can watch our favourite shows and support the creators, at what price? A few bucks.
But in the era of computers, only a few buy TV. Sometimes it can be because they don’t have money, or sometimes they just don’t want to fill their room with machines. If you are one of those people, then you are at the right place. In this article, I am going to show you how to turn a computer monitor into a TV Screen.
There are a lot of LCD monitor to TV converter available, but in this article we are going to add methods to not only use a LCD monitor to TV converter, but also convert your LCD monitor to TV without that. And that’s not all. We will even show you how to convert a laptop into a TV. Without wasting any more time, let’s get right into it!
How to turn a computer monitor into a TV screen
Check the ports.
The first thing you would wanna do is check which ports your monitor and satellite box have. If the output port of your satellite or set-top-box matches with the input port of your monitor, then just connect them with a working cable and you’re done. In case they don’t, follow the methods below:
Buy a TV Tuner
A TV Tuner is basically a device that allows you to connect your set-top-box or satellite box with your computer monitor or laptop. A TV tuner comes with input and output ports and cables. You are needed to connect the monitor and TV tuner using a cable and then connect the satellite box and TV tuner using another cable. You can get one for less than 50$ from Amazon. There are different models of TV Tuner for computer monitors and laptops, so check carefully before buying.
Now that you have a TV tuner, let’s learn how to use it.
How to use TV Tuner
- Connect the Monitor to the TV Tuner using the cables provided.
- Now connect the satellite box to TV Tuner.
- You can also add speakers to the TV tuner in case your monitor doesn’t have one.
- Once done, connect all the machines’ power plugs.
That’s all. Now you can use the remote given by TV Tuner to switch to AV mode (to watch satellite box/set-top-box). You can change channels using the satellite box’s remote. There are also options available to connect consoles and DVDs in the TV Tuner. That was all on how to turn a computer monitor into a TV screen. Enjoy!
