HDMI to Component Video
I purchased an HDMI to component video cable, thinking I would be able to connect my laptop to my TV. My TV has a component input, and I know that we use the same spot to connect our DVD Video recorder (model # DMR-E85H). My laptop has HDMI out, and I've used it on occasion to hook up HDMI to HDMI.
So far, despite my best effort, I'm not getting any picture or video on the TV, and my laptop doesn't seem to recognize a second display source.
I really would like to watch netflix and play games on the bigger TV, are there any thoughts?
