Hi everyone

Am new to this site and so far I have found it's a fantastic source of information.

I have a query, I want to build a new system with windows meda centre, TV tuner, large hard drive and large screen(approx 26").

I have built a few systems before but want to know if LCD TV's are compatible and if they are do you need any special leads to connect to your PC.

thanks

Different makes models of LCD TV'shave varying connectivity- You will have to study each model you have in mind to see if they have the appropriate connection/firmware - AVI I think it is called

*but want to know if LCD TV's are compatible*

Compatible with a PC? - some are some aren't.

Some have VGA inputs which connect to a PC just like a monitor. Even if they don't have a VGA input, some have other types of input that can be connected to a computer.

Some models are even sold as combined monitors and TVs (generally the smaller ones).

Some TVs are unsuitable for use as monitors owing to too low a resolution to be useable.

At the end of the day, what you need to get depends on what you want to use it for.
