I have a portable computer with a VGA connection that I want to hook to a TV monitor, an ILO 32HD TV, with : HDMI, DVI, AV2 IN, AV1 IN input. How can I achieve this? I bought an adaptor, from VGA to DVI, but on the DVI side, it has 4 little pins that prevent it to connect. I searched the Internet and what I found out is that different "kinds" of DVI exist... It is not specified in the manual, what king of DVI input it is... DVI-A, DVI-I or DVI-D. I went to different places but nobody seems to know anything about DVI...

Re: Hook computer to ILO tv
The best way is to buy a graphics card with HDMI output. This will dsplay your PCs desktop the way it's supposed to look, and will appear much sharper and clearer than using vga, as the output is digital to begin with. If you don't need to play the latest games, you get get one for around $30. Add a wireless mouse and keyboard and you'll be able to control everything from your armchair. You can also then use your PC to download and watch films etc from the internet..

hi just hooked up the VGA cable from your PC into the VGA port of the tv unit and then select pc in the source menu. if it is hdmi or dvi you must need a converter , like vga to dvi or dvi to hdmi etc.
Your TV comes with HDMI, DVI, Component In and S video in. Since it has no Tuner built in you will have to use a Set Top box with either component out or if you buy an HD Set Top box with HDMI out. The later will be in your favor so that you can use the only component video input for your old DVD player and not keep juggling pins at the back
Are there multiple ways you can connect your PC to your TV. If your PC has a HDMI out just hook that up to your TV (if it has one too of course). If your PC doesn't have HDMI out but does have DVI out, you can buy a DVI to HDMI adaptor and hook it up to your TV. If it doesn't have DVI out or HDMI out but does have a VGA out you can use that to hook your PC up to your TV (if it has VGA in). There are many things you can do. Including...
PC TV VGA---RCA HDMI--HDMI HDMI--RCA HDMI--YPbPr DVI-----DVI and so on...
As you can see, there are many ways to do connect them. You can decide what method you prefer.
Your computer should have a DVI port to make this possible since your TV dont have a VGA port. If your computer have a DVI port then an HDMI/DVI cable is all you need. This allows you to connect you computer or laptop to you tv through the HDMI connection on your tv.
Hi, I'm afraid that not only a cable is needed but an analog (vga) to digital (dvi) converter/scaler as well. The iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12 can hook up to a PC using the DVI-I connection only. As you said, your computer has the standard 1D15 pin VGA connector.
Another possibility is if your video card has a composite video output (normally a color yellow RCA female) or an S-Video output which will both connect direct to your iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12. For the RCA connection all you need is an ordinary RCA to RCA shielded wire cable and for the S-Video, an S to S Video cable will work. There is of course the question about the quality or the resolution.
Good luck and hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
Unfortunately you are trying to mix two different video types: VGA is an analog video interface found on most computers (except for latest with flat panel monitors, which are usually DVI). Your TV DVI interface is digital (although there is a DVI-A, which is an anlog DVI interface, it is unlikely that your TV has this). So, what you are trying to do probably won't work. I assume your computer does not have DVI output (otherwise you wouldn't have bought the adapter), but some monitors have VGA inputs; does yours? What kind of DVI adapter did you get? Is a DVI-A? Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvi for info on DVI interfaces.
Not sure if you have fixed your problem or not. When I hook up my pc to the ILO 32 HD...I ran DVI input for picture...you can also use HDMI if you like..I had a problem with sound and had to use a splitter and run sound into AV2 IN to get sound for some reason...your no picture...if you are getting a black screen, you need to set the resolution on your pc. VGA to 640x480 and SVGA should be 800x600 and XGA should set at 1024x768..most likely the last one is the one you need..and this is not a normal pc res....set your refresh rate to 60HZ. All this is done in the control panel/display/settings tab.
Also remember that you need to change your source on the TV to the proper connection to see it...ie component, HDMI etc.
