Question about Philips 20PF5121 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD Television
The LCD TV works well in stand alone mode, but when I try to connect it to a PC with a VDI cable, the video mode is not accepted by the screen (though properly configured for PC use). The only solution seems to start the PC in safe mode and set resolution to 640 x 480, which is by no means an acceptable standard for today use of a PC. Is there any way to use the screen connected to a PC with a higher resolution? Thanks for your ideas.
If the tv accepts 640 x 480 via DVI lead in safe mode, then as long as the tv is set to work in conjunction with the same resolution as your pc by the pc to DVI setting, it must be your pc's graphics driver that is the problem, as in safe mode the graphics vga driver only is loaded and not the advanced graphics options and resolutions, so enabling you to view on an external monitor. You should be able to right click on your desktop, then graphics properties and select either clone/dual or monitor. If this option does not show then you need to go into your graphics cards properties and ensure that an external screen or multiple display; is enabled, depending on your graphics driver.
