DirectTV

  • Connecting Your DirecTV and Your Computer

    Maybe your TV is on the fritz, or perhaps you just like your computer chair better than the couch. Whatever your reason for wanting to watch DirecTV on your computer monitor instead of your TV, you can do that with a few simple steps.

    Starting with your composite cables (tipped with red, yellow, and white) put the corresponding plugs into the same colors on the DVR. Make sure that the red tip goes into the hole with the red circle, etc.

    Then, do the same with the other end of the cables, plugging them into the DVD Express converter box. Again, it is a simple but imperative task to ensure the colors match up, because you’ve got connectors for audio and for visual, and they must match up for signals to be received properly.

    Use a USB cord to connect the DVD Express converter box with the USB ports on the computer. Plug one end of the USB into the port in the DVD Express converter box, and the other into a USB either in the back or on the front of your computer tower.

    You will have to restart the computer, like you do with any new program or hardware installation. You should now be able to watch DirecTV on your computer. Keep in mind that if your video card or viewing area is just not up to par, you could always switch it back to your TV later.
