Re: Phillips 32

No. USB doesn't send any images. Its a data line.
That said, I can't see that your TV does have a USB port.

However, the TV does have s-video in which COULD be used to show your PC on the TV. However, it won't look very good. (Certainly not as good as a computer monitor).

Panasonic hdtv 1080i CT-36HX41E..Can you hook up a PC to the tv for the monitor?

You can connect this to your computer if you have an S-Video output on your computer. This is the only supported connection on your TV. This model doesn't have a VGA, DVI, or HDMI port.

Hope that helps!

I have a one year old Broksonic 19" flat screen LCD TV. I wanted to use it as a computer monitor, so I hooked up the VGA cord and selected PC as the input. Nothing. What am I doing wrong? Charles...

Is the computer set to send data to the video port? Laptops often have the external port disabled; check the BIOS. (This is often accessed by pressing F1, Esc or F2 before the OS loads. Check your documentation.) Then you can set the preferred monitor by looking at the Display settings.

Some desktops have a similar issue where only one port is active (DVI, HDMI, and VGA). You may need to connect a different monitor via the enabled port or use an adapter to get the VGA cable to mate with that port to change settings. (In the case of computers with video graphics cards and motherboard video ports, only one item is active. Try moving your cable with an adapter if needed to one of the other ports. Then change the BIOS setting if you do not want to continue using the adapter.)

Try a different video cable and make sure it is fully connected to both the computer and the monitor. Damaged cables are always suspect.

What OS are you using? Do you need to download drivers for the Broksonic? Go to and ask in the Product support section - they don't seem to have a direct link on the site. (For example some TVs are not compatible with the drivers in the Mac OS.)

I hope this helps.

Trying to hook up Phillips DVD player and have 3 coaxial cables that need to be hooked into Sony TV and I have 14 holes for cables-help!

Don't use co-axial cables buy HQ SCART Gold Plated Ribbon cables with full 21pins then hook up the AV out of the DVD player into one of the AV in on the TV.

When you turn your player on it will autoselect the correct AV (audio visual) channel on the TV.

Input button says there is a setting for computer but manual does not give instructions

there are a number of methods that will allow you to make the connection. Many computers have incorporated composite (RCA) or S-Video (TV-Out) output that will either mirror or, better yet, extend your desktop beyond the monitor. For desktop systems, there are numerous AGP video cards available that offer a variety of video outputs. For example, ATI's Radeon X1950 PRO video card includes composite, s-video, and component video connections for analog signals. Of course, it all depends on what inputs your television can accept. If it has multiple input ports, remember that there is a hierarchy in terms of signal quality among the three typical types of connections, which, from lowest to highest, is composite, S-Video, then component video. So opt for the highest quality connection supported by both devices. Many older or more basic televisions may only have a coaxial cable connection. In this case, there are video cards with coax outputs and scan converters that will pass the signal through a coaxial cable directly to your television. Oh, and remember that you'll also need to connect your sound card's LINE-OUT connector to the TV for sound.
The tricky part may be finding the right cables to go from the computer to the TV, since there are several types of RCA (1 or multi-port) and S-Video (4-pin and 7-pin) connectors. One product I found, the Pro S-Video to 3 RCA cable allows you to connect your desktop or laptop computer's S-Video to your TV. These adapters are compatible with both S-video 4-pin and 7-pin receptacles and also connect your PC's stereo audio output to the TV.
But don't run out and buy any special video cards or cables yet... There are certain limitations of using older CRT televisions as computer displays that can easily render the advantages of size and affordability almost completely negligible. Perhaps the greatest constraint is the relatively low resolution of standard, tube-based televisions. Because of their design to accept NTSC (North American), PAL (European), or SECAM signals, good old-fashioned analog television sets generally cannot display resolutions greater than 640x480. That was barely adequate for a 14-inch monitor ten years ago, so just imagine how it might look on a 32-inch TV screen. Have you ever tried to read those fuzzy disclaimers at the end of a TV commercial? Viewing your computer's video signal through a CRT television will not yield the detail and clarity that you would normally expect, although for games and video playback it can produce acceptable results.
