connect ps4 to lenovo ideapad

I have an ideapad 300 and i want to use my laptop's screen as my ps4's monitor. I don't want to use remote play and I want to connect it with hdmi cable.

Can anyone help me do this work. it's too important for me.

Re: connect ps4 to lenovo ideapad

Hello Arash380

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


You cannot connect the PS straight to the laptop's HDMI (if it has one, I do not have this unit so can't confirm) as this is a HDMI output, same as with nearly every single laptop.

 

To achieve what you are trying, you will likely have to use a capture card of sorts, something like an Elgato. However, these as you can imagine, not exactly cheap, so I would say, you are much better off investing in a separate screen that you can use for your PS.

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
