    i have a nvr card i have to setup and test. i tired using tablets as monitors with the hdmi cables but they will not turn into monitors. i have a chromebook and that also has the hdmi port. can i turn the chromebook into a monitor so i can plug it into the nvr card and use the chromebook as the monitor so i can start setting up the nvr card to see my network cameras.
    i know the card works as i have connected to the other nvr monitor but i do not want to keep moving that monitor. it would be much easier to have this one on it's own monitor so i can go back and forth comparing settings so i can get this card to see the same cameras the other nvr sees.

    or is there a way to get my tablets to be turned into monitors? i found that i can make the table show on my tv but that is using the tablet as a output i need them to become inputs.

    thanks for any help bp.
