    Thank you for the video links. I needed to connect my laptop to the TV and had no clue how to. I went to a shop today and purchased an HDMI cable that the clerk said would do the trick, however, when I tried, I encountered difficulties with the connection. Your videos showed me how to and from there I was better able to understand how to connect via HDMI. Thank you for making it possible.
