Hi arturo,

Thanks for asking ahead, we’ll be happy to help.

The USB2-HDMI-165 will work to connect to your TV – If your TV provides EDID information via the HDMI connection.

Here’s why:

The DisplayLink chips inside the USB2-HDMI-165 require EDID (Extended Display Information Data) from the monitor to set the resolution. The manual for the TV will have more information on how to connect to a PC.

I hope this helps, let us know if there’s anything else we can do.

Thanks,
Jerome
