Question about Panasonic TH-50PX75U Plasma HDTV
You have to have a couple of things to make this work: 1) a PC with DVI or HDMI output, 2) a video card capable of 1280x720 resolution and 3) a video card driver/utility capable of correcting for overscan.
I have my laptop connected to one of the HDMI inputs via a DVI-to-HDMI cable. I have Windows at 1280x720 resolution on the DVI port (the external monitor). I set this through Control Panel-> Display. Once I did this I was able to see my PC desktop on my TV. The only problem then was the desktop was cutoff on all side. To fix this it was a bit more of an adventure and this solution would only work if you have an ATI Radeon video card.
I installed ATI Catalyst Control Center (CCC). In CCC, it recognized that I was connected to a Panny 50" plasma. Than enabled the DTV settings. Under those settings I put the video card into 720p@60Hz mode. I then had to create a custom format to shrink the screen to fit my Panny display. I then saved this as the default setting for the Windows desktop. Whenever Windows boots it runs CCC and sets this setting for me.
I hope that helps! It can be done and it looks great.
