How to use the rj11 port on a laptop

Connect Nintendo Switch to laptop and use it as a monitor?

Can I connect my Nintendo Switch to a laptop and use it as a screen? If so, how can I connect my Nintendo Switch to the laptop screen? Even if you can play very well with the Switch on the go, there might be one or the other who would like to connect the Nintendo console to a laptop screen in order to have a larger picture. Especially if you want to play with two, three or even four people on the go, a larger screen than the one on the Nintendo Switch is often very practical. But can you use a laptop for this? Actually, you should be able to easily connect the Nintendo Switch to the laptop monitor via HDMI, right?

Laptop as a screen for Nintendo Switch?

Even if it sounds so simple, it is not that simple, because many people overlook a small detail here. If you want to use your laptop as a screen for the switch, you either need a capture card or a notebook with an HDMI input. Even if almost every current notebook has an HDMI connection, it is mostly an HDMI output and NOT an HDMI input. The HDMI output can only transmit the signal from the laptop to an external screen and cannot transmit and display a signal on the laptop screen from outside.

In summary, you can say, no, you can't connect the Nintendo Switch to the laptop and then use it as a mobile screen for gaming. The exception are notebooks with an HDMI input. A notebook with an HDMI input is quite rare and not built into most consumer notebooks. The only option would be to get a capture card and display the image on it from the Nintendo Switch on the laptop. Here, however, you should make sure that the capture card does not have a long delay.
