Plasma Hook up

I am trying to hook up my 42' plasma to my computer so that I can use it as a monitor. The problem that I am having is that i don't have a HDMI jack on the plasma, only s-video. The other is that I am using a Bose surround sound system and A direct TV system along with it and I cannot figure out how they should all be wired together. Thanks for any help.

Re: Plasma Hook up

The only way that you can connect a tv using s video, is if your pc has an s video out on the graphics card, so as to clone the screen or by a vga to s video adapter, see below to get the sound you will need an auxilliary in audio phono connection on the tv or your Bose from your sound connector at the back of the pc, normally the green socket

Where is the cable hook up on the tv?

This plasma is only a monitor meaning they do not have a tuner, so it doesn't have a cable hook up. If you want to receive over the air channels, if you live in the USA, you will need a digital converter decoder or if you have cable/satellite suscription you will need a cable/satellite decoder box to receive the channels.
The way to connect any of the mentioned devices to your plasma is to use the yellow, red and white cables to the input of the TV and select input 1 or video 1.
If you live where you can still receive over the air analog channels, a VHS should work.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
