Hello hannahfunya,

 

You would need HDMI cord to connect to your HDTV from your notebook  ...

To hook your TV/Cable/Satillite/Analog up to the Notebook and use the notebook to RECORD TV you would need a TV TUNER (Hardware $50-$150) ....

 

What do you mean "use it as a dvd recorder etc" ? what DO you want to do with it ?

Also hannahfunya,

 

You should have posted this in either Display and Video, or Other Notebook Questions

Did you purchase the TV tuner package when you first bought your laptop?

 

If not, you'll need to buy a USB TV tuner if you want to have use your laptop as a DVD recorder.

Ok after an hour we finally figured this {Content Removed: Language Filter Evasion} out!

First you obviously make sure that you set the channel on the correct hdmi port (whichever one u put it in) usually hdmi 1 2 3 or 4...

On your laptop, right click and go to configure switchable graphics.. Put it on high perfformance gpu. Make sure the power savings isn't on...

At that point the laptop display should automatically appear on your TV...

Its pretty simple and really shouldn't have taken that much **bleep** effort! Haha

Hope that works for you!
