This PC to TV Converter Review will discuss the various types of products available that allow you to send TV programs and channels, movies, videos, etc. that you are watching on your PC to your home television.
If you have been enjoying watching TV, Movies and videos on your PC, using Satellite Soft or other providers, you may wish to take the next step. The next step would be to send the satellite TV, movies, videos, etc. to your home television via a PC to TV converter.
In this article, we will discuss three of the various types of PC to TV converters available and hopefully help you choose the right converter for your needs.
Three PC to TV Converter products available are:
Wireless PC to TV Converters
PC to TV Converter Cables
PC to TV Converter Gadgets or Boxes + Cables
Many people wish to use a wireless PC to TV converter. Through my research, I have found that a large majority of people who have tried using these wireless devices report problems with both audio and image resolution on their home television. It seems that there are many things that can disrupt the signal and cause the home television’s images to be very blurry.
There were also statements of causing the PC images to blur while the wireless converter was hooked up to it (many would only hook up the PC to TV wireless converter while watching their home television, so they did not have to look at the blurry PC images). There were people who were happy with their wireless converters, so this may be a good option for you. Just make sure you choose a device with a high GHz.
Many providers of PC to TV converter cables claim all you need is “their” cable to display satellite TV from your PC to your home television. Unfortunately, after reading many product reviews, I have found most people could not get their home television to display in high quality, especially if they used a long cable (over 6 feet). Most consumers found that if they hooked up to a PC to TV Converter box (gadget I like to say), using a cable, they could get a much better quality viewing.
PC to TV Converter boxes (gadgets) seems to win in providing the best quality of image clarity and audio. There are many on the market today, yet you will have to find the best one that is suited to your computer as well as your television.
One way to increase the quality of any of the PC to TV converters is to have the computer as close to the receiving home television as possible. This may be difficult for many people if their computer is in one room and their television is in another.
One solution I found to the location problem was to use one of my old (yet still working) laptops. I would first have it connected to the internet via DSL, and using the Satellite Soft software. Then I would connect it to my home television via a PC to TV converter gadget and cables. I set the laptop rather discretely close to my home television and no one was the wiser that we were viewing Satellite TV from my laptop PC on my home television!
In summary, of the three types PC to TV converter products reviewed, the one that came up most favorably is using a box (or gadget) with cables, keeping the computer and home television as close to each other as possible.
