[ Bruce  Jan 17, 2018 ]

A
It should work fine if you are sure you have a HDMI input on your laptop. But if it is only a USB then you will need a different Product. Something like RCA to USB Input. I hope that my input was of some value to you

Thanks for your question. For more information on the cable(s) you need, I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to qualify the right items for your specific phone. I hope that helps!

Q
I was considering buying this to connect my HDMI output from my laptop to my car screen. Will this cable be enough or do I need an actual digital to analogue converter? If this cable can take HDMI and output to RCA and then a separate cable (CANON) take the RCA and connect it via the 4-POLE AUX port to my car I think I'm in business. I own a 2015 Chevy Sonic
[ Melia  Oct 31, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
Well if you have a digital output then your end input should be digital as well but for this cablestv-250n accepts analog signals only so it will not work for your application maybe a converter in between the hdmi and the drv-250n might work but not so sure
[ Laryea  Oct 31, 2016 ]
Q
I'm planning on hooking my Xbox One to to the car aux and wondered if this would still have sound?
[ dotcommer  May 28, 2016 ]

A
If your HDMI and other equipment is good and with good connections then you should have sound as the red RCA jack lead is for right side audio, the white RCA jack lead is for left side audio & the Yellow RCA jack lead is for composite video. Enjoy !!
[ ROBERT J  May 29, 2016 ]
A
I've used this on my tvs Rca as well as my vehicles and I had sound on both platforms.
