Why can't I see my computer on my TV?

Episode 1496 (1:36:56)

Quame from Phoenix, AZ
Plugable USB 3.0 to VGA / DVI / HDMI Video Graphics Adapter

Quame routes his computer display to a TV screen using a splitter, but the TV is only being shown on one monitor, and not the one he wants. Leo says he can arrange the displays within the display settings. Leo says that the Splitter is his problem. That won't see all three devices. So he should take the splitter out. He'll need a laptop that supports multiple monitor connections.

Leo recommends using an external USB video monitor for his laptop instead. Asus makes one that's about 15". Or he could use a plugable USB video adapter for $47.

The chatroom suggests this HDMI display adapter.

A universal docking station could also help..
