PS4 question

Post by Lord dragon » Tue Jul 07, 2015 2:19 am

The HDMI port on my PS4 is broken, I was just wondering if I could connect my PS4 to a laptop via the LAN port and just play games that way.

If it isn't obvious, I have no clue what the LAN is actually for. Though I know what it means.

That's not how it works. You need a dedicated display like a monitor/TV to use with the HDMI port.
LAN (Local Area Connection) is used for connecting devices over an RJ-45 connector, also known as Ethernet. it's basically a faster version of wifi with a physical cable.
