Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have an emachine, a few (maybe three) years old and would like to use tv as monitor, at least for viewing some youtube. i think my tv as scan frequency of 60hz. would like to know scan frequency of emachine, as one online manual says differing scan frequencies can damage computer or tv. thanks for any help. michael
Most TV have interlaced 60, which is really 30 hz...
You can set your computer's scan frequency by right clicking on desktop, then going to the rightmost tab, under advanced, click on the monitor tab and select 60 from dropdown tab...
However, most videocards output Svideo to tv, not VGA so don't worry about it. if your TV has VGA in, you can select 60, but if it has VGA in, it probably has greater than 60 capabilities... but 60 is rock safe for everything.

Just be sure the Tv is LCD ....And make sure that The REFRESH RATE (scan frequency, you call it)....matches on both the pc and LCD tv....
Even if the tv isnt lcd.... you can use a tuner card for a CRT tv.....
But I recommend LCD HDTV...a high end one!
I actually am using my 40" WS Sony HDLCD TV....
Most TVs that can support a PC (HDMI or RGB) will automatically cause both the TV and PC to operate on the same Refresh Rate.....
