Hello , my name is Jack

Sorry this took a while but this tv does not have a specific RGB/VGA input made for computers so i had to check if this could indeed be done with it .

The manual that i will upload in a minute gives only one option for this and that is the HDMI input.

What type of computer are you trying to connect to this tv ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Is it a laptop or desktop computer ?

Does it have a DVI or HDMI output ?

Take a look at the link below , that is how it would go ;

Note that if you have external speakers then you don`t need the audio connect

Remote is optional as you can select the input/source with the CH +/- buttons directly on the tv , (page 11 of the manual)

I would prefer to have a refund please. I just noticed an extra part that is needed.
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Yes you do have all the info now.

I don`t handle refund or anything that has to do with the workings of the website , you will have to go back to where you first logged in.
