How to Connect Your Macbook To A TV


People are increasingly viewing movies and TV shows on streaming services these days. The distinction between computer and television is becoming increasingly blurred as a result of this service. However, even if you’re viewing a TV on your computer, Netflix, your huge flat screen TV is likely to provide a better viewing experience than the PC you use to access the internet.

When you connect a Mac to a television, you can view the internet on a much bigger screen. Using a TV with a Mac may also provide you with a second display, allowing you to be more productive and enjoy your job or games. You may even connect two external monitors or TVs at the same time in many circumstances.

Click the Apple logo at the top left of the screen, then “About this Mac” to see if your Mac is compatible with external video devices. Hit “Support” in the popup, then “Specifications” in the following box. A webpage with information on your Mac’s external video capabilities will appear; simply scroll down until you reach “Video Support” and read the information underneath it.

However, TVs don’t necessarily make good second displays since specialized computer monitors, which are meant to be viewed up close, typically have far higher resolution than a TV.

After that, you may utilize your TV as a second monitor.

5.If you want to mirror your MacBook screen to your smart TV, then select Arrangement on your Display Settings and choose Mirror Display.

When you’re finished and wish to disconnect the monitor, follow the steps above and select Off in Step 3.

Alternatively, you may pick Screen Mirroring from the Control Center on your menu bar, then select the TV you wish to mirror your screen to.

Can I Plug a MacBook Into My TV?

You can use a wire to connect to your MacBook if you have an older model TV or MacBook that doesn’t have AirPlay capability. The sort of cable you’ll need is determined on the model of MacBook you have and the computer’s connections.

You might also have to decide whether to utilize a cable that links directly from your MacBook to your TV, such as a Thunderbolt to HDMI cable. Alternatively, you may utilize an adaptor that connects to your MacBook and gives adaptable ports. A Thunderbolt adapter, for example, connects to your Macbook and accepts HDMI or DVI connections.

You may need to go to Settings > Display to modify your display settings after you’ve connected.
