If the videocard of your PC has a hdmi out connector, you should be able to connect that to the hdmi in of your TV to use the TV as a monitor.
Can you tell what you mean exactly with "overload". What are the symptoms, what are the error messages?
And what are the minimum system requirements for that program and on what points your PC doesn't meet them?
Hello - I'm a novice with computing who's seeking wisdom from his betters.
I recently purchased a Philips flatscreen TV (model #40PFL4706). The TV is internet enabled, with both built-in apps (like Netflix) and the ability to let me stream video or photos directly from my PC. The problem is that the software that allows the PC-to-TV streaming (MediaConnect) overloads my PC's processor. This probably isn't surprising; apparently MediaConnect is a hefty program, and my PC is a pretty basic machine. I'm wondering if there is any other way to stream video from my PC to my TV? Particularly, is there another program that will facilitate this (esp. any freeware)? Many thanks.
