Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hello, What's the model number off the back of the Coby TV?
Also, does your computer have an HDMI pot, or only the standard 15 pin VGA?
I will need specifics to help you here.
Oh it's an Olevia? You mentioned "Copy" tv, not sure what that was.
You would run an HDMI cable from the computer to the Olevia TV's "HDMI/DVI" port, then select "HDMI/DVI" using the source button on the Olevia.
In your computer's settings, select "Connect to external display" to get the picture on the TV (if it does not come up automatically).

Okay sounds good.
I posted the instructions above- can you see them? Scroll up the page to see all replies and follow those instructions.
Oh, you can't do that without video editing software and a TV that supports AV output which your TV does not. That was why I thought you had posted "Coby tv shows to computer"- meaning the TV shows a hookup to a computer. No you cannot copy TV shows to a computer. You need an external tuner or DVD recorder in order to be able to do that and then you also need video editing software I'm afraid.
The answer was that additional equipment is needed. If you need specifics on what is needed then let me know.
Okay, good luck.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. If you still need help with this, I'd be happy to give you more information.
Can you tell me specifically HOW you are getting your tv stations currently? (Antenna, basic cable, cable box, satellite, etc)?
Do you have content on an existing DVR and you're looking to transfer it to the computer for archiving, putting on a cd/dvd, etc? Or are you actually looking to edit the tv content somehow?
