PC cable to LCD TV

  Mr Confused 13:53 18 May 2005

I have recently purchased an LCD TV with a PC connection on it. I used to know someone who connected their TV to their PC hard drive and display the image on both their PC monitor and on the TV screen. How can I do this? And also what equipment will I need and where can I purchase this from?

The video card on my PC has "TV out" on it as far as I know.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

We need to know make and model of LCD TV and type of connector is it the same as a monitor connection?

Some TVs can be used as a monitor just plug into grahics card output as normal not TV out, this is why the model No. would help.

Sorry about that!! I have a Philips 26" Widescreen Flat TV - Model No: 26PF8946/12.

This link click here provides more details about the TV.

From the spec. of the TV looks like a standard PC VGA connector 9 pin, A cable can be purchased to connect a Laptop or PC in place of the standard Monitor you use, just make sure you get Female/Male connectors correct on the cable you purchase, most PC suppliers will have stock, I have the same connector but have not used it yet ... hope this helps ...
