using all in one computer to connect sky tv box via hdmi

HP Recommended
22-3130na

Hi

 

I have a HP all in one computer monitor which has a hdmi port to the rear. i want to connect my sky box to this so i can use just one screen rather than 2 however i believe that this is only a hdmi out put.

can it be converted to receive or is there another solution?

 

Thanks

Oops!  I misread your question.  The following suggestion is not suitable for your setup.

 

See: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/dynex-3-port-hdmi-switch-black/2058023.p?skuId=2058023

 

for a "HDMI switch" for receiving up to 3 HMDI signals, and outputing 1 HDMI signal (to your monitor).  About $30 US.

Thanks for trying.

 

I am led to believe that a hdmi to usb tv card may be a solution?

 

Please advise

Yes, you need a "tuner" device, connecting to a USB port on your computer, plus software on your computer.

 

I tried a few searches, but did not find a device with HDMI input, just coaxial:

Does your existing TV-reception box also have coaxial output?

Coax cable, like an HDMI cable, will carry both audio and video signals.

I looked at:   https://www.sky.com/help/articles/connecting-a-new-tv-to-your-sky-q-box

 

and it does say "only HDMI output".

 

Like I said, I only did a "quick" search, not an "exhaustive" search for a device with HDMI input and USB output (to your computer).

 

I hope this helps.
