PC Setup Tips
Choosing a PC setup location
If you intend to connect your PC to your TV, a set-top
box, or a surround sound system, HP recommends that
you choose a clear working area with easy access to the
connectors of these devices. If your TV is wall-mounted,
make sure that you have access to the rear ports on the
TV before attempting to connect it to the PC.
