Switching from PC monitor to an HDTV monitor

I want to be able to hook my HDTV to my PC. I can do it if I manually hook up my video cable to my HDTV, but then if I want to use it on my PC monitor I have to switch it back. Is there some type of switch I can get so I'm not switching cables back and forth? I've done some research and found what is called a 2 Port monitor splitter adapter. Is this what I'm hunting for? Below is a site with what I'm talking about...... Thanks

Yes, this product will do the job. An easier solution, although probably more expensive, would be to use a video card with dual outputs. Using a video card with dual outputs would allow you to see the computer's video on both screens simultaneously.

How do I connect a PC to a LG50PG20 50" HDTV Plama?


You need a VGA cable (15 pin) connected from PC (monitor out) to the PC input on the HDTV (15 pin) this is for the video. For the audio, connect from PC to HDTV, audio cable, either 3.5mm from earphone out on PC to HDTV 3.5mm audio input (next to PC VGA input) and also be sure to set PC screen resolution to compatible output for HDTV like 1024 X 768 or 600 x 800 etc.

Select the PC input on the HDTV using TV remote.

Hope this helps.

How do I hook up my hp computer to my lg flat screen tv


You can use the TV's VGA port which needs a VGA cable which you can get from a computer hardware store. It's called RGB in on your TV. This is also called PC input.The max resolution you will get is 1,366x768 off your PC.

Monitor turns off by itself during normal usage.


There are a few things you can try in order to narrow the the cause. First there's the easy outside-the-PC stuff such as:

- hook up a different power cable
- hook up a different video (VGA/DVI) cable
- You can always try switching to the other type of cable (try VGA if you're on DVI and vice-versa) to see if that makes a difference, assuming your monitor as both connectors.
- try connecting same monitor (and power/video cable) to a different PC for a day and see if it turns off there as well.
- For that matter connecting a "known good" monitor to your PC to see if that monitor also acts that way on your PC.

On the software side you can disable the power management features related to the display to see if that makes any difference.

If you were to connect this to a different PC with a different VGA/DVI cable and power cable and it still did it that I would say it's probably the monitor itself (unless the PCs were identical or something and under control of the same domain policies or some craziness like that).

At some point you probably want to call the manufacturer and see if an RMA is an option. I would recommend trying some things before that though. I hope this helped!

KWorld PC to TV Converter


I had the same problem. It turned out the issue was that I had the VGA Y-cable connectors between the PC and the KWorld box reversed. They look like they should be interchangeable, but they are not. A closer look at the cable connectors shows that one is marked "PC", one is marked "Monitor", and the 3rd is marked "SCAN CNVTR". Once I got them plugged into the right places, I got the screen image on the TV.
