  1. Hello, i have been wondering how to make your television appear on a computer.

    I have a laptop and have an video output on it in the back. I used the video cord and put it in into the TV. The only options i have when i press Fn and through F5 is makin it only making Computer Screen appear on both laptop and tv, only tv, or only computer

    Can i make it the other way around? And if i dont have the write equipment... what would i need to do this?

    You need a video input from your tv to your laptop.

    I probably wouldn't suggest fraps considering a 1min file usually takes about about 1gb of hdd space recording half screen at 20fps
