The manual won't help you to much in this regard. This monitor is a standard type that has both a VGA and DVI input. Normally what you would use with a personal computer.
If you want to use it as a TV monitor you will have some sort of device that outputs to VGA or DVI. DVI stands for "Digital Visual Interface" and it's preferable over VGA as it should potentially give you a better image.
This means: A) A computer. You can build your own media TV and watch internet streamed shows like Hulu, Netfix, use as a DVD player, etc. I recommend this route. No more dependance on Cable companies! You just need internet. B) Find a DVD, and, or Tuner/Cable/Satellite box that has these outputs. If you want to use Cable or Satellite, contact your provider company and see if they have a box that will output to either VGA or DVI. Might have a hard time finding one of these, or it might cost more then it's worth. C) Buy a S-Video input to VGA/DVI output. You can buy these for around $40. Then you should be able to hook it up to just about any device as most modern TV devices will have an S-Video outputs.
The best option here is to use your TV as a secondary monitor for your iMac. Doing so would require the correct type of connector in your case a mini-DVI to HDMI connector. Once it is connected, you have three options - you can have it mirror what's going on on your iMac's display, have it act as extra monitor 'real estate' - that is to say extra space that you can drag windows onto and so on - or you can have the TV act as your primary monitor. All of these options can be changed when your TV is connected through Apple menu > System Preferences > Display > Arrangement.
You don't really need to worry about the DVD player on the TV as the Mac OS has a DVD player application built into it. You can use it or the TV's DVD player, it's really up to you.
As for connecting both of them to the same speaker system, you should be able to purchase a connector that will go from the audio out port of your TV to the audio in on the back of your iMac. You would then be able to select the TV's output in Apple menu > system preferences > sound > input.
hmm a bit...complicated but if they all use HDMI then one cord is all you need going to the tv from the bose sound system while any other HDMI connection should directly go into the bose sound system or if the dvd player uses RCA then RCA sound should go to the sound system and video directly to the tv
It appears that the monitor was designed to work with the display circuits and software driver on a Personal Computer. There is no circuitry in the display to handle the out put of DVD player. A smart TV has the circuitry. the display does not.
Tried to use my TV as a computer monitor. When tries to boot up, will go to "No Signal". All hooked up correct. Is ther something I need to do tobe able to use the monitor with my computer. I have a Dell Desk Top Computer.
NEWER TV SETS REQUIRE THE RIGHT CABLES, USE S-VIDEO OR AN HDMI CABLE WILL SOLVE ANY PROBLEM ALSO SOME T.V SETS ARE JUST LIKE THE PLUG AND PLAY YOU HAVE WITH COMPUTERS, ONCE THE RIGHT CABLE IS CONNECTED AND YOU CHANG TV INPUT FROM YOUR REMOTE IT WILL PICK UP YOUR DVD
