Use Your Computer as a Home Entertainment System


Did you know that your computer can now become a complete home entertainment system within minutes! That does sound exciting doesn’t it? With simple connections, you don’t need to spend a small fortune on a brand new home entertainment system.

Let’s take you through the basics:

  1. Firstly, check that your TV has a VGA (PC monitor) input connection, if not, the purchase of a simple converter such as a USB-to-HMDI or VGA-to-HDMI will solve this problem.
  2. Then, check to see if your computer has an audio output connection that can be connected to your TV. This could also require an adapter plug or converter.
  3. Alternatively, you can connect to the internet on your computer and connect the audio to your TV speakers or home theatre speakers.
  4. If your computer has multi-channel outputs for a surround sound speaker system, you can play DVDs directly from your computer with a basic home theatre sound experience.
