CCBS TV User Guide

Introduction

The LG 55” LCD TV (located in Room 3258, aka “CCBS”) can be used to connect your computer for presentations on a large screen.

Requirements

To display content on the TV, you will first need to determine if your computer requires either a VGA or an HDMI connection. Please note that a VGA cable is already provided in the room.

  • If using a VGA connection, please also confirm if you need to provide a VGA adapter (typically mandatory for Mac computers).
  • If using an HDMI connection, please also provide your own HDMI cable.

Getting Connected

(NOTE: A remote control is not necessary for operation of TV and therefore not supplied in room)

  1. Please set up computer at least 15-30 minutes before presentation to allow sufficient time should helpdesk support be required.
  2. Below the TV, there are wall-mounted ports for VGA and HDMI inputs. Please connect the appropriate video cable to your computer. (As stated previously, a VGA cable is already provided in the room. However, if HDMI is used instead, you will need to bring your own HDMI cable).

    CCBS Inputs
    1. If your computer is using a VGA connection, press the “VOL +” button on the TV until “RGB-PC” is highlighted in blue. Computer content should appear onscreen shortly.
    2. If your computer is using an HDMI connection, press the “VOL +” button on the TV until either “HDMI1” or “HDMI2” (input will vary depending on which of two HDMI port numbers on the wall jack was used) is highlighted in blue. Computer content should appear onscreen shortly.

    If content still does not display onscreen, and you are certain the correct video input is selected on the TV, please try disconnecting then reconnecting the video cable to your computer.
