How To Connect Laptop To LG TV To Get The Best Use Of Both?


The two best ways to establish a connection between a LG Television and a laptop are:

  1. Using SmartShare-
  • It uses your home internet network to stream media files from the laptop onto the TV Screen. Just make sure that both the systems have the Internet access either via Ethernet or Wireless to a same Network.
  • Update the Media Player on your PC for best performance. You can do this by going to Windows Media Player, and then to Help > Check for Updates.
  • Add files on the Media Player by clicking on the Organize button at the top, then Manage Libraries, and then click on Add to select the folder you want.
  • Turn on your Smart TV.
  • Now, turn on the DLNA Server. Click on Stream in Windows Media Player, then choose ‘Turn on Media Streaming’, and then tick the ‘Allowed’ checkbox next to your LG TV.
  • Click OK to save the changes and start DLNA Server.
  • You can now browse the files from your TV Remote. Press the Home button and select SmartShare. Choose your computer from the connected devices’ list.
  • Pick the file and watch it play.
  1. Use the LG TV as the computer monitor-
  • You can use an HDMI cable to connect your laptop and TV.
  • Plug in one end of the cable to your PC and other end to the HDMI port of the TV.
  • Label the Input port (HDMI 1 or HDMI 2) on the TV.
  • Turn on the television and connect to the labelled input menu.
  • Switch the computer’s screen to the Smart TV by pressing Win + P to choose the method in which you want the image to appear.
