Use a HD set top box which has VGA output.

Ensure the STB will output at a resolution and scan rate to match that of the screen.

yYou dont unless you have a dedicated tuner that outputs to DB9 (VGA plug) or HDMI. Older flate screens dont Do HDMI natively so you would have to get a stand alone tuner like this: http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=VGA+tuner&oe=utf-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=16346340210151671120&sa=X&ei=gEiAT9viBuGciQKD3a3AAw&ved=0CFIQ8wIwAA

How can i use my acer monitor as a tv i lost my manual


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.

1920x1080 resolution-entire screen not viewable


This also happens to my vga connection to my TV.
I used my tv remote "auto" button to re-size it to fit correctly.
If your monitor/TV does not have the adjustment, you may need to
supply your vga compatible device with your monitor's driver software.
This tells your computer what monitor specifications you have.

Can i use my hdtv as a moniter


Sure can, as long as it has a VGA hookup on the back. I use my HDTV and computer to play movies all the time. You do have to add a seperate audio input from the computer to the tv if you want sound through your tv also. Hope this helps...

Getting my samtron to work on my cctv


Not all DVRs have WORKING VGA output. I used to work for Nuvico, and we had 2 different versions for DVRs. Ones with VGA connection. The other with non-working VGA connection. VGA port itself does not guarantee. Some DVRs also have DIP switch in the back. You can simply toggle between composite or VGA output. Ones with DIP switches often require reboot, and from my experience these do not work well with VGA monitors. Also... Make sure VGA monitor support low resolution. Stand-alone DVRs' native resolution is either 600 or 800 horizontal lines.
It will help alot if I know the model of DVR/CCTV

Try going into Start - Control panal - add new hardware. First let windows look for itself ;then If it doesn't find the monitor then tell it monitor and see if it will find the correct driver for it. Worth a try.
