Thread: how can I see video on laptop?

    Default how can I see video on laptop?
    I have a appletv 2 I have a laptop with a hdmi port. when I hook up the appletv to it there is no video. Is that hdmi port on laptops for hdmi "out" only?

    My appletv 2 is jailbroken. Now I want to install nitotv. do I need to do this on my desktop pc? Do I need a video card with a hdmi "in" port on it. My desktop has a video card with a ps2 port on it. It is a Nvidia 8800 gt.

    It is for HDMI out. You need a mini-usb cord to connect the Appletv to your laptop to jailbreak.

    Are you trying to watch video from your aTV on your lappy? If so, doesn't work that way. Unless the HDMI out and your laptop can be an HDMI in, which is extremely unlikely.
