I'm a little confused. Are you actually trying to send images from the TV to the laptop? Usually, it's the other way around.
Hi, yup I've managed to do the other way around, so though I'd ask if sending tv images to a laptop is possible without any additional hardware.

The HDMI connector on a laptop is meant as an output and is not input capable. You'd need a video capture care with HDMI inputs for the laptop to display the output from a TV. Also, I've yet to see an HDTV with an HDMI output jack.
Video capture card? So it's kinda: "Plug the AV cables to tv (output), plug the other end with a special box and connect the box to a laptop", right?
Yeah I think got the whole idea, I've heard about these stuffs, but I though there'd be a way or a trick to use the hdmi to do it.
Well, you've cleared the picture in my head so thanks a lot folks!
