View Full Version : g53jw-a1 to tv hdmi

I read a post about hooking up this laptop to a 3d tv. It said that the tv must have a hdmi 1.4 port. Is this also true for hooking it up to a regular hdtv? I have an older Philips 42" 1080p LCD TV (42PFL7432D/37) that I was hoping to connect this laptop to when I am at home. Is it possible to do this or would I need a newer hdtv?

No, if you just want to hook it up for normal viewing anything* will work.

*If you want to view protected content then you will need a setup that supports HDCP end to end but that isn't an issue for most things.

1.4 hdmi is only to view 3D. if you have DLP you dont need 1.4hdmi, 1.3 will work fine.

if you just want to hook up your laptop to the tv but no 3d viewing, 1.3 hdmi will work fine.
