I only have a small room and want to combine the TV with the monitor what would I need to be able to use a single monitor to use as a monitor and to watch TV programmes not necessarily at the same time?
IF you want to use a TV it needs to be a HDMI TV and you need to hava DVI output on your Graphics card. I Have a 32" LCD TV connected to a XP desktop. You have to choose HDMI on the TV before you switch on the Computer. You will not be able to read any text if you do not have the right equipment. you have been warned
I recently bought a new LCD TV which has a VGA (i.e. PC compatible) socket, but I've never used it nor do I intend to use the feature.
I would have to bring a complete computer system in from another room to do so and, frankly, it's not worth the effort; even more so as I have a Freeview TV card in my system, plus the original CRT set and set top box sitting in the opposite corner.
However, my youngest offspring does use a 32in LCD set to display computer output if and when required, but it's done using his fully wireless equipped property.
