How do yu connect a desktop tower to this tv


First, we need to look at how to make your PC send the correct signal. As a general rule, I can say that you will likely need some sort of adapter in your PC in order to send a signal to the TV. This is typically referred to as a "tuner card." It converts PC output to the input that a TV can understand. I don't normally recommend Wikipedia, but this article does tell you the basics of how to get signals from a TV to a PC:
TV tuner card Wikipedia the free encyclopedia
Then, it would be helpful to know what brand, model #, etc. "this" TV is.

How do i go from my pc to my tv?


Your tv must have a VGA/DVI (-D) plugin for you to be able to do this directly. Otherwise, you will need a converter from VGA (which is an analog source) to RCA-type plug (generally yellow) or a converter from DVI (also analog) to RCA-type plug. If output is DVI-D (digital), there is also an adapter available (yet more expensive) to convert down to analog then to RCA-Type plug.

I have personally found these adapters at places like Best Buy, Walmart and Radio Shack.

This will ONLY convert the video. The audio will still have to be converted the same way.

If your TV will take an HDMI input, there are adapters to take in both the audio and video to create an HDMI input for television;

Good luck.

TV tuner card will not display digital TV


And, unfortunately, it never will. TV tuners cards are almost exclusively an analog connection. You would need to convert the signal to analog using a secondary device, such as any of these:

http://www.google.com/search?q=512mb+xd+card&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a#sclient=psy&hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US%3Aofficial&biw=1920&bih=1073&tbs=shop:1&q=digital+converter+box&aq=0&aqi=g5&aql=&oq=&pbx=1&fp=84578a1e35ef3dc7

It will work pretty easily...set your TV tuner card to the appropriate channel as detailed in the converter's manual and you should be fine.

You could also see if your cable provider's box has any analog outputs (yellow red white or screw-on coax).

How do i connect to an hdtv ?


You're going to need to connect a cable supported by BOTH the PC and HDTV. Check your HDTV's jack panel or manual. List the types of Input jacks it offers. The HDTV will likely have Component, Composite, DVI, HDMI and maybe even VGA jacks. Do the same for your PC. It likely has one or two Video Output jacks. Typical Video Outputs are DVI and VGA. The VGA type has been standard for years. It consists of a total 15 pins in 3 rows. The DVI has a number of pins, but most noticeable is a wide tab at one end of the jack.

If your HDTV has a jack that matches one of those found on the PC, you're in luck. Purchase a cable that will connect them - this would be either a VGA cable or and DVI cable. Nearly any inexpensive VGA or DVI (Digital Video Interface) cable 6 ft or less will do, but the better cables cost a bit more and when the distance is increased, the quality (or lack thereof) really becomes visible - especially on the lager HDTV screens.

If you want the sound to go to the TV speakers or elsewhere, you'll need to get a cable with a 3.5mm stereo plug (or whichever type your PC has - but that's the most common) to RCA or whatever the audio input jack type is that is associated with the video input you chose. The audio input must be the one associated with the video input - other wise you will not hear the audio on input 4 while watching input 3. The PC audio out is analog, so do try to put the signal into a digital input.

If you don't have a matching video input jack, you'll have to purchase an adapter or new video card with jacks that match your TV. Do not buy simple adapters that change VGA to DVI as they will not convert the actual analog VGA signals to Digital Video signals expected by the HDTV's DVI jack. The best bet is to buy a modern video card supported by your computer's mother board and OS that has a fair amount of memory (512 MB is a good start). If your HDTV has HDMI jacks and you wish to play the sound from the HDTV's speakers, get a card with HDMI output and buy an HDMI cable. It will send both the sound and video to the HDTV for you.

You can read a nearly endless list of articles about HTPCs aka "Home Theater Personal Computers" for ideas and deep discussions about everything from soup to nuts to implement, design and set up on google.

I hope this helps - good luck!

Tv tuner will ot detect digital signal in windows media center, vista


All US TV signals are now digital, but most TV tuners are like our old TVs - analog. Are you sure your tuner is a DTV tuner? If not, you will need to replace it or get a DTV converter. A DTV converter will not let your computer pick the channel and time though.

But one footnote. Broadcast digital TV is often not the same a cable digital TV. If you get a cable digital signal it is encrypted to the actual serial number of the receiving box. No broadcast DTV converter can do this. This is how the cable company now controls the number of receivers and one has to pay for EVERY set.

Hdmi connection for camcorder to hdtv does not work.


If i am to understand you correctly, you are are connecting a mini-HDMI adapter to the TV, and another adapter to the camera, then connecting the two adapters together.. i believe this may be an issue..

Too many adapters can actually cause signal issues, especially when converting a digital signal to analog, then back to digital, or vice versa.

Check to see if the manufacturer of your camera has an adapter to go directly from the camera output source to your TV's input.

Cam > adapter > TV = Correct
Cam > adapter > adapter2 > TV = Signal degridation
