HDMI input to Motorola 7216 HD DVR

Message 1 of 5

I have a Motorola 7216 HD DVR connected to Verizon FIOS. I want to connect my laptop which has an HDMI output. Can I connect my laptop's HDMI output to my DVR as an alternate program source?

 

My TV doesn't have any HDMI inputs - only composite video is available.

 

Thanks...

Does your laptop have DVI and audio outputs?  If so you could use a DVI-to-component adapter.  If it only has a VGA output the yon could use a VGA-to-DVI adapter with a DVI-to-component adapter.

Then you would need a VGA to DVI adapter and a DVI to component adapter.  I'll send you links in a private message.
