Here is how you can connect HD box display on your Windows 11 laptop
Is your HD box connected to your Television? Is your favorite team playing at the same time at which your family is binge watching their favorite show?
Instead of logging in and searching for various streaming services online. Connect your HD box to your laptop, and make sure you do not waste your “bein sports” subscription cost.
How to make my windows 11 laptop act as a screen of my HD box?
There are two ways you can achieve this. A straightforward way is to use advanced screen mirroring technology and wirelessly connect your laptop to your HD box.
How to achieve this?
You can make your Windows 11 laptop act as a screen for your HD box by using screen mirroring or screen casting.
One way to do this is to use the built-in “Project to a Second Screen” feature in Windows 11. To use this feature, first ensure that your HD box and laptop are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Then, open the settings on your HD box and look for a screen mirroring or screen casting option. Turn this on and then go to your laptop’s “Project to a Second Screen” option. Select your HD box from the list of available devices, and your laptop screen should now be mirrored on your HD box.
Another way is to use third-party software like “LetsView” or “ApowerMirror” to cast your laptop screen to your HD box.
But this way of making your laptop display for your HD box may have some limitations. Firstly, this process entirely depends on the strength of your internet connection. And since the HD box is streaming using the internet, results may drop if you further burden the internet with wireless connectivity. And issues like lagging may be faced by the user. Moreover, more importantly, you need to ensure that your HD box supports screen mirroring or screen casting features before trying these steps.
To overcome these limitations, you can simply use an HDMI connection between both devices to achieve better results.
How to achieve this?
You can make your Windows 11 laptop act as a screen for your HD box using an HDMI cable by using the built-in “Project to a Second Screen” feature in Windows 11. To use this feature, first connect your laptop and HD box using an HDMI cable. Then, go to the “Project to a Second Screen” option on your laptop.
You can access the “Project to a Second Screen” feature in Windows 11 by following these steps:
- Press the Windows key + P on your keyboard.
- Select “Project to a Second Screen” from the options that appear.
- Select the screen that you want to project to. It should be the HD box connected via HDMI.
Alternatively, you can access the feature by:
Right-clicking on the desktop and selecting “Display settings”.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and under the “Multiple displays” section, select “Project to a second screen”.
- Select the screen that you want to project to.
It’s worth noting that in order to use this feature, both the laptop and HD box must be properly connected to each other through HDMI cable, and the HD box must be set to display the input from the HDMI port the laptop is connected to.
Select your HD box from the list of available devices and your laptop screen should now be mirrored on your HD box.
If you are unable to set the HD box to display the input from the HDMI port the laptop is connected to, it could be due to a few different issues. Here are a few things you can try:
- Check the connection: Make sure that the HDMI cable is securely connected to both the laptop and the HD box, and that the cable is in good working condition.
- Check the HDMI input on the HD box: Make sure that the HD box is set to the correct HDMI input that the laptop is connected to. Some HD boxes have a button or a remote-control option to switch between different HDMI inputs.
- Restart the devices: Try restarting both the laptop and the HD box, and then try connecting them again.
- Check the settings on the HD box: Make sure that the HDMI input is not disabled and the resolution is set correctly.
If none of these step’s work, please check the user manual of the HD box or contact the manufacturer for further assistance.
Please also make sure that your laptop and HD box both have HDMI ports and they are correctly connected before trying these steps.
Using these steps, you can now connect your HD box to a second screen of choice and enjoy services available by your own will.
