Description of connectors on the PC card
Then the same thing needs to be checked on the TV. It is required that the same connectors are free on the computer and on the TV. If both ports are free, then it is better to give priority in favor of the HDMI connector, since it has a higher bandwidth, and, therefore, better quality. Plus, HDMI connects not only image but also sound.
If the computer will be connected to the TV through the VGA connector, you should note that on most modern TVs when connected through this output, the screen resolution will be significantly lower than the “native” TV resolution, which will negatively affect the image quality. In the characteristics of the TV, the screen resolution is always indicated separately when connected via the VGA connector.
After the computer and TV are connected with a cable, it remains only to indicate on the TV from which connector to receive the image (usually the source button).
