Computer to TV Inter-connectivity

I want to connect my PC to the Panasonic TV... using the TV as the monitor, so I'm wondering if that is possible and if there is any kind of serial-to-s video cable, or serial-RCA cable, or any kind of connector that will work? Can it be done????

You can use a video card that has composite out, but the picture will never be as clear as your computer monitor. for that you will want a LCD with vga connection.

I dont have pip is there any software i can buy

Yes there are many sorts, you can get USB, or Internal cards, I myself have a Pixelview PlayTV Hybrid, that allows me to view, HD DVBT & Normal TV as well. In fact I use two cards, another Pixelview internal BT878, chipset. I run them boyh, so I can work on one screen, and have HD TV, & Normal TV PIP'ed on my other monitor, it all works great. Dscaler is a wonderful software to use.. But the software that comes with the cards works well too. One Must be set to RGB & the other to Overlay, though to allow both to work at once. Download Dscaler below, it plays DVD;s great as well, simply the best out there.

I am trying to connect my laptop to the Polaroid LCD TV, as i would like to use the TV monitor as a computer monitor (my laptop monitor is broken). So I connect the correct wire to correct places, however...

The simple patch that I found (same problem) was to start by using any old monitor that I could borrow to set up my Dell Laptop.
After getting the Laptop booted on a regular monitor I right clicked on the desktop and went to properties then to the settings tab.
Here I found the dual monitor settings (#2 will usually be dis-abled by default.)
Click on #2 monitor and set the resolution to the lowest number (800 x 600 works well)
Then I clicked on "make this monitor my primary monitor"
As soon as I clicked apply the PC Windows screen appeared on the Polaroid TV screen

Earlier I had set the secondary monitor as "extend this screen to this monitor"
This also worked but I had to "drag the current screen to the right all the way off the
"borrowed monitor" until it appeared on the TV screen. The mouse pointer will be there also.
At first it took a little getting used to but in a few minutes I was up and running.
Hope this helps your situation
