Question about V, Inc. Vizio P4 Plasma Television
I just bought a 19" vizio LCD TV to use as a monitor with my computer(DVI to HDMI). I power the TV off when Im gone, but when I power it back on the HDMI input shows "no signal". The only solution Ive found so far is to turn the computer off and back on. Another note, when I power the TV off the computer makes the sound of a device being disconnected. The computer Im useing has Windows 7 RC, but Im not sure thats the problem, seems more like a hardware issue. (Ive found similar problems online, but havent found any solutions yet.)

Here is the link to the user manual for the TV if you need it; http://www.haier.com/admin/en/product/upload/42EP24S-UM.pdf Check page 7 - The DVI input has next to it an audio input - DVI does not carry audio as HDMI does - you need to plug a seperate mono audio cable from your cable box to the TV at the DVI Audio input (top of page 12). The Audio needs to be in the one next to the DVI socket in order to work at the same time as the picture from the same "source" selection. Check page 18 "CATV Type" and make sure this is set to the correct one for your cable box Check page 21 that all the audio settings are logical and nothing is turned right down or muted. If none of this helps then please post back. What make and model is Your Cable box? Hope this helps :)

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.

Once minute my Vizio P50HDM was working the next minute the picture was barely visible. I called Vizio and they gave me a number for a repair company. Their company gave me a $650 estimate. I called a few other local placed and they said that this is a very common problem for this model TV. All the places gave me an estimate of between $600 - $700. I called Vizio to complain, but they are not interested.
