I have purchased this monitor to run a variety of things. I have my PC connected through the DVI input. I have my digital cable connected directly through the coaxial input. I just bought a PS3 and connected the HDMI cables to the monitor but the monitor cannot access the HDMI input sources.
When I go to the Menu for the monitor, I can only select the sources "TV" and "DVI". It will not allow me to scroll down to the HDMI1 or HDMI2 inputs. Can someone help me out with this (I would greatly appreciate it)?
If it like my monitor, same hookups as yours, then when you want to use the hdmi port you need to disconnect the dvi cable. The monitor cannot read from hdmi & dvi when both are connected, Try this & see if your PS3 works. Good luck.

They are different protocols. You have to have a converter than changes the protocol (protocol is like a language...it needs to be translated to a different language). They are available from eBay or amazon but they don't always work very well. Best thing to do is get a unit with the correct connections.
Turn your computer off, and turn it around to view the rear
of the unit. Find the cable that comes from the computer's monitor, and
follow it to the back of the PC. The cable will be plugged into the
output of the video card, which will be either a 15-pin VGA port or a
29-pin DVI port. If you are fortunate, there will be a second port
directly next to it, of either the DVI or VGA variety. On the newest
machines, you may even find a regular HDMI port on the card.
Choose the connection for video output. If your computer has
an HDMI port, you can simply connect an HDMI cord of the correct length
between the computer and the TV. Otherwise, you will need to make a few
decisions. If your computer has only a single video output, and it will
not be used solely with the television, you may want to invest in a new
video card. Purchase one with either a DVI or an HDMI output, and
install it in an available slot, according the instructions included
with it. If you intend to use the VGA output on a single-output or
dual-output card to drive the HDMI display, then a special device will
be needed to convert between the formats, and the price of the converter
is actually about the same price as an entry-level video card that will
be easier to use with your TV. In that case, it may be a wise idea to
upgrade the card in order to obtain a DVI or HDMI port. However, if your
chosen output port is of the DVI variety, an inexpensive DVI to HDMI
cable can be purchased to convert your computer's output into the proper
HDMI input for your TV.
Connect the HDMI cable from your television to your computer.
Install the correct adapter or converter for your computer, if
necessary. Unless your computer has HDMI output, cords will also need to
be connected from the sound card output to the HDMI video cable or
adapter, because HDMI carries both video and audio signals.
Boot your PC, and configure the new display, by selecting
"Control Panel" from the "Start" Menu. Then double-click the "Display"
icon and click the "Settings" tab. The manual for your HDMI TV will list
the screen resolutions it supports, along with the refresh rates.
Configure the resolution in the "Settings" tab, and then click the
"Advanced" button to set the refresh rate. If you are using the HDMI TV
as the second monitor, you will also have to configure how it is used by
Windows, according to the instructions pertaining to your video card.
Most cards offer a "Clone" or "Mirror" mode, where both screens display
the same content. Alternately, the "Extended Desktop" mode can be used,
in which each monitor will operate independently.
Reboot your PC to apply the changes, if necessary, and
prepare to relax on your couch and watch your movies on the big-screen
Hi , just access the monitor on-screen display (OSD) menu and ensure Monitor input mode is configured for HDMI ( Asus speak the " desired input source" ) - Input select is accessed under tv with arrow icon : change from vga to hdmi
Any contemporary monitor is able to switch analog/digital mode automatically if connection from signal source to monitor is set up properly.
Connect digital output from your graphic card to DVI input of the monitor. Disconnect any other signal cables from monitor and switch on both devices (PC & monitor). Wait a while. Monitor checks its inputs and a activates digital DVI, because it is only one active input on it.
If none picture excluding error message of monitor is displayed, go through these steps: 1) Check whether your monitor is set for automatic input selection. If monitor buttons have no response try to use analog input to activate screen (any picture, desktop background...) and then get monitor menu access by pressing menu button.
2) Find out what connector type has your graphics card in PC. Possibilities are: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and some their options. See Wikipedia for connector look if you are not sure. Remember that blue D-SUB (VGA) connectors are analogue and you cannot activate digital mode through analog VGA cable.
3) Use appropriate cable to connect monitor to PC. Example: Your PC has HDMI output. Use HDMi-to-DVI cable. Your monitor input is DVI and common DVI-DVI cable is not suitable in case you have PC with the HDMI. Note that DVI-to-DVI, DisplayPort-to-DVI etc. cables are available. You must buy right one.
Be aware that "Auto" button is inactive in digital mode of monitor.
I see that you are having a check input error on the Monitor/LCD that your are connecting to your Dell tower, please see steps below.
On your HP 2310E make sure that your HP is set to the input/source that you are using and make sure that you only use one type of video cable for the issue.
I see that you mentioned that you have a VGA cable and a DVI cable, you can only use one type of cable for a video connection.
VGA would be the Blue tipped cable connecting to the tower and going to the LCD monitor.
DVI this is a black cable connecting to a white port much bigger than a VGA port and is rectangular in shape unlike the VGA
and on your LCD monitor check the input type to see video from the tower.
everything seems to be OK you just need to change the input of your LCD monitor for the video to show up on the screen.
also if you are using HDMI for the video u will need to change the setting of your Audio and set HDMI as the Default to have Audio come out from the HDMI connection together with video, the HDMI viedo will automatically be detected as long as the LCD monitor's input is set to HDMI.
I hope that this will able to help resolve your concern.
Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug. Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV). I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.
the ideal solution is to use a HDMI cable if the player has such an output ...if the player has only RCA out ...so ...use a hybrid cable if you want to use the audio from the monitor... http://www.campus111.com/m00299.html or any kinda cable that will make video connection ...and use the sound on some computer speakers or so... if the player has HDMi the things are ideal ... anyway the monitor suports ...dual HDMI input ...(2 devices at once onthis interface ) ..VGA (monitor like ..clasic...) and DVI ...(digital video interface )... so ...in a way ..no mather how you connect it ..the thing is to have the cable to do the job ...
Older LCD TV's have a variety of inputs, one of them being VGA, to connect to your PC. The problem seems to be that you either connect your PC to its own monitor, OR to the TV, but not both? If that's the case, you may have a couple of alternatives:
The most expedient one would be to get a VGA splitter cable; the other, more expensive: replace your video card with one that has dual outputs: either one with two DVI ports; one with one DVI port and one VGA port; or one with one DVI port and one HDMI port. As you can tell, there are several possibilities, depending on the connectors available on your TV.
Im no expert on the subject, but I use my L37 for a monitor, and use just the vga adapter. It works good as a monitor, and both dvds and my hdtv wonder tuner card look great through the vga connection. They do make adapters for dvi to hdmi. Although, hdmi also carries sound, but you wont get that out of your dvi output from your card. So you might not have sound when using that connection, as your tv may not look to the headphone type jack used for sound imput from your computer when you select the hdmi source on it. If you have speakers already connected to your computer you may not care. Also if you have a 720 p Vizio, 1366x768 is the highest resolution you are going to get out of it anyway, if I'm not mistaken. I'm Not sure why you would need 2 connectios to the same monitor either. I posted 1 link below because they had several dvi to hdmi adapters. Hope that helps.
