That depends upon what you are using with it. Monitors do not have integrated tuners and thus cannot select channels. However, most cable providers use set-top boxes that perform the channel selection function for you. Many of these boxes have HDMI outputs that can be used with monitors that have these input capabilities. Otherwise, you need separate audio and video connectivity from the cable box to the set, either in the form of composite video plus audio cables, or a DVI cable with audio cables. Again, this is dependent upon what the cable box and monitor support.
I am not an xbox person, but as far as hooking it up, it should work as long as the other device is NOT powered up. That being said you will still have to provide audio from the xbox another way as dvi only carries a video signal, unlike the hdmi which carries both audio and video.
Your monitor has Analog RGB, DVI and HDMI inputs. Any other hook ups will require additional cables and/or adaptors. It also has 2 additional audio inputs. I can't answer your question without knowing what kind of outputs you do have on you computer system. Most desktops have DVI out and would probably be your best bet using a DVI to HDMI adaptor with a HDMI cable out to your HDMI in on your monitor.Rgb cable would use svga out on your computer. The best way to get an answer would be to let me know the make and model of your computer system with avaiable outputs, if you know what the outputs are or, repost with additional info included. Dave
Your HP2009M monitor supports (3) methods of accepting signals from a computer. They are: 1) VGA, 2) DVI and, 3) HDMI.
You would connect the computer to the monitor using one connection only. Generally the VGA is the least desirable as it is an analog signal. The DVI and HDMI method provide digital paths into the monitor and often perform better. Your computer may only offer 1 or 2 connection choices, so you'll have to choose a cable type that is supported by both the computer and the monitor. The HDMI choice will pass audio signals to the the speakers in the monitor without needing to run a second cable between the stereo audio jack of the computer and the audio input jack of the monitor (located next to the HDMI jack) or to a set of external speakers (unless of course you prefer the external speakers).
The message you're seeing is normal. Once the monitor is connected to your computer, there will only be one active selection; VGA, DVI or HDMI. Since you're using the analog VGA jacks and cable, it is expected that you'll see a message that there is no signal present on the DVI (and HDMI) inputs when attempting to view signals on other inputs.
I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply, thank you.
First figure out what output video the computer has. These days it can be VGA, DVI, or HDMI. Then determine what video inputs are on the monitor (same list). Then plug in the desired cable. Many monitors only come with the VGA cable. If you do not have a VGA port on the computer you would need a DVI to VGA adapter to use that cable. Otherwise buy the DVI or HDMI cable. (DVI to HDMI cables exist if you have HDMI but no DVI on the monitor and only DVI on the computer. However, you need to check your video specs closely. A Single link DVI is different than Dual-link DVI and the cables are not interchangeable.)
Once the data and power cords are plugged in, power up the monitor and then the computer. The computer should find the new hardware and install (or ask for a disc to install) the drivers.
What problem are you having? The connection should be fairly straight forward depending on your computer's video out. You can use a VGA cable, DVI to HDMI (check your graphics card manual for single link or dual link on the DVI side), or component video (even S-video). If you have HDMI out on the video card, use an HDMI cable. If you want to connect to the TV's speakers, you need at least an 3.5 mm audio cable (or 3.5 mm to RCA audio).
The DVI cable can be either a DVI to HDMI cable or DVI to DVI or HDMI to HDMI with a DVI to HDMI adapter at one or the other end.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (you will need to go through the input modes to find the signal. Some TVs need to be on (with no signal) before the computer is turned on.)
dvi is just video. hdmi has both video and audio. dvi is still used because it is a standard for computers.
connect the audio from the audio rca jack to your TV / speakers. If you have surround sound you should use the SPDIF optical audio port - it'll be cleaner and support all channels.
Remember audio has to go to an amplifier or all-in-one box, which goes to your speakers. If your speakers are built into your tv you should be able to plug it in directly and then select the audio channel on your TV. If you plug it in and you still don't hear anything it's a problem with selecting the correct audio input on your TV / amplifier
Only if you've got an HDMI output on your computer. Some computers with
higher quality video cards, or just newer ones will have a DVI output
for a monitor. You can get a DVI to HDMI cable that will then be able
to connect the two.
As others have said, if you have a video card with DVI output, you can get the video to the TV using a DVI to HDMI cable.
But no one mentioned anything about audio. DVI can not carry audio, so
you'll need to send audio from the computer to the TV (or receiver).
Some TVs have audio inputs associated to one (or more) HDMI ports for
use with devices that have DVI, but not HDMI. My Sharp LCD has two HDMI
ports, one with separate audio inputs, one without.
