I HAVE A LG FLATRON M197WA LCD TV MONITOR . HOW I CAN OPEN BOTH TV AND PC AT A TIME ? HOW I ADJUST THE MONITOR TO VIEW BOTH IN A SINGLE WINDOW? 0919830151045


You can't. The TV can't operate as both a monitor and a TV receiver at once. In order to use the TV as a computer monitor you need to select the VGA input, which shuts off the TV tuner. If you want to watch TV at the same time, you need a TV tuner card in the computer. Then you can have the TV program displayed in one window while another displays whatever other application you're running.

Could you please let me know if i can use my viewsonic monitor as a tv if so what cord do i need to get


The monitor does not have a built-in TV tuner and cannot function as a TV unless your computer has a TV tuner. In this case all you need to do is connect the monitor to your computer and start the TV tuner/program in your computer.

I have a dell precision m60 and I want to hook it up to my hitachi 55 plasma tv Ive tried to do this via s-video without success


Trying to hook up your computer to the tv? Or the monitor to the tv? Anyways, you can't hook up the monitor to the tv to see the same thing on both. But for the computer to the tv, connect the s-video cable to the tv from the computer, and you have to press (on the computer) ctrl+alt+F2 or ctrl+alt+F1 it's different for some computers. But if that's what you tried to do, that's the way you do it.

Anyways, hope this helps.

MONITOR


You will need a TV Tuner expansion card for your computer. If you buy a TV Tuner expansion card and install it, and connect an antenna or cable TV cable, you will be able to watch TV shows on your computer monitor while using your computer. With some TV tuner cards, you can also record TV for watching it later, or even hook up your VCR and record VHS tapes and home videos to put on DVD. This is a more complicated topic and instructions should come with the TV Tuner expansion card you purchase.

TV tuner cards usually run in the range of $20-75 and will fit in most computers. You can buy them online and at computer or electronics stores. Installation is fairly simple and the instructions and software are included (unless you buy a used one)

Good luck!

Hello,

Unless you're hooking a computer up to the monitor and watching TV/DVDs on the computer, you need a TV box such as this: http://www.kworld.com.tw/product_overview.aspx?P_ID=15 in order to watch TV/DVDs on your monitor.
