HP TouchSmart 520 PC model 1049 Windows 7 connect to TV

I have connected my PC to a Samsung HDTV via an HDMI cable but the TV does not pick up the signal. I have checked to make sure the TV has the right HDMI input.  Is there anything I can do to get it to act as a second monitor?

The HDMI port on the AIO PC is an Input not an Output. It is for connecting a game console to the PC to be used as a monitor. If you want to connect it to a TV, you would need to purchase a USB Graphics adapter to output to the TV.

To expand upon "PC Tester's" post. You will need to use a USB-to-video adapter such as the EVGA UV Plus+ UV39 to connect your TV to your TouchSmart computer.

bodyety2012,

 

When requesting assistance, please provide the complete model name and/or product number of the HP computer in question. HP/Compaq makes thousands of models of computers that are all different. Without this information it may be difficult or impossible to assist you in resolving your issue.

 

If your computer is an AIO or TouchSmart, chances are that the HDMI connector on the right hand side of the computer is for INPUT only. To connect your AIO or TouchSmart to a second display requires the use of a USB-to-video adapter such as the eVGA UV Plus+ UV39.

 

Please send KUDOs
