Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32HS500 32" TV
I'm trying to cable connect from laptop computer to Sony Trinitron for webstreaming. I was sold a "standard DVI male plug" from Tiger Direct that has one larger horizontal piece with has two pins above as well as two pins below this horizontal metal piece on their plug, with several pins on the other end. Meanwhile back at the ranch, on the back of the Trinitron there are two vertical slots and a smaller horizontal slot on the right with various pin slots on the left end. I bought the TV used from a friend's son who conveniently forget to give me the cable and owner's manual before he moved 5 states away (first state being Texas). Any and all rational ideas will be considered.
While typing this I am speaking to Sony and am being told this port labeled DVI is for DVI-HDTV and not for computer webstreaming......any way around that?? Anyone in south Texas want to trade a great TV for one that will receive webstreaming????
I've just recently connected my old 32" Sony KV-32HS510 to my HP G60 Laptop via an HDMI (laptop) to DVI HDTV port(TV) with a cable.
I'm running Windows Vista on my laptop with the nVidia software. Once I've plugged in the TV to the HDMI port, the software initializes (recognizes the TV) and then I can select it as my second 'monitor' in the nVidia control panel.
I found I had to tinker with the resolution settings in the nVidia program to find an optimal resolution where the sides of the screen weren't 'cut off' by the TV.. I finally ended up with the resolution 1152x768 (I believe). It might be different for everybody, as I'm told Vista might do things differently than XP... But you should be able to tinker with the resolution settings and adjust the screen size...
(hope this helps with the second post - above)

I tried the recommended cable to the TV, but I cannot get a picture. I have a Sony HSKV32HS500. I attached a VGA cable from the PC to the HDMI adapter I bought for the TV. I fired up the PC and went thru all the various options from the remote trying to find the right mode on the TV. Nothing worked! It does not display anything from the PC. What option did you find that worked?
