PC, laptop or Android devices

Lots of different manufacturers make laptops and tablets, what is important is the type of connection it uses to display on an external monitor like a TV. An HDMI port is the easiest and cheapest to connect your device to the TV.
HDMI ports come in 3 sizes to fit the 3 cables illustrated on the left. The right hand cable is full size HDMI, the middle one is Mini HDMI and the right hand one is Micro HDMI. The other end of the cable that goes into the TV will always be a full size HDMI.
If you have a port for any of these cables on your device you will need the following type of cable:
Full size HDMI
Mini size HDMI
Micro size HDMI

Android device with MHL compatible port

Android tablets or phones with no HDMI port often allow you to connect to a TV through the USB port. Devices that let you do this are known as MHL compliant.
The bad news is that the port is rarely labeled MHL it usually has a USB symbol on it like the image on the left, but this does not mean it definitely has MHL.

An updated list of all the devices that support MHL is available Here. Search this site to find your device.

If your device DOES support MHL you should get a connector cable like this one or Google your device name and MHL.

Android device with no HDMI and no MHL compatible USB port

If you have read the 3 sections above and discovered that your tablet or phone does not have the right port, there is one remaining solution.
Google Chromecast is a device that plugs directly into the HDMI port on your TV and receives pictures and music from your device over WiFi.
We have added this solution last because it puts a heavy demand on your device and you may suffer some issues with video quality and delay. But the good news is that it is inexpensive and it works with Apple, Android and PC.

3. Connecting to your TV

Put the cable in the TV

Insert the bigger end of your cable into the TV. The port or hole you fit it into will be called HDMI 1 or similar- take a note of the port name you use if you can

Connect your device

Insert the other end of the cable into the tablet or phone
Switch on the TV
Switch on the device

Find the right TV input

You need to select the TV input (or source) you stuck the HDMI cable into
From the TV remote control, click on the button called Source
Choose from the list of inputs displayed (it will be called something like HDM1 or HDM2 …)
If you don't know the name of the source you used, try the first in the list, wait for 5 seconds, then try the next.
Once you have selected the correct TV source, it will display the same picture as your tablet or laptop is showing.
Make a note of the source name.

Next time you setup

Every time you plug the tablet in you'll need to find the right TV input or source.
Tip:
Find a sticky label and make a note of the name of the right TV source for displaying your tablet screen. Stick it somewhere discreet.
