Click here to watch our 'how to' guide on Youtube


We stock a full range of cables to enable our customers to connect their laptops and PCs to their TVs.

The various connections explained...

Unless both your computer and TV have a HDMI connection, you will require a separate audio cable for sound. However, if you just require a picture/video with no sound, only buy a video cable.

Here is our quick how to guide;

1) Select video connections that both your computer and TV have. Compatible options are below. Select audio connections that both your computer and TV have. The audio sockets on your TV that you plan to use must be the ones that are meant for use with the video input. They will usually be called 'PC audio in', 'VGA audio in', 'HDMI audio in', 'DVI audio in' or if you are using the s-video to scart kit, the audio cable will plug straight into that.
