Maxent as PC monitor

I am trying to use my Maxent MX-42 as a PC monitor, but when I switch to RGB mode I get the PC background on the Maxent monitor, but not the desktop icons or pc mouse activity. What am I doing wrong.

Most likely you haven't set it up as a mirrored display. Try dragging your mouse off the edges of the original dispay (or laptop screen) and see if it shows up on the plasma, if it does, figure out of to mirror. Im not sure how to go about mirroring the display on windows, but on mac its an option in the display drop down menu.

Maxent plasma tv mx-42hpt52 when switch on everything works well for about 5min then volume goes to max on its own and other fuctions stops working.


You need to have your main board replaced. It's unfortunate but even low voltage boards go bad. Try locating a Maxent website and email them to see where you can get parts from.

Hooking up a Mac to tv


I ran into the same problem with my "50 maxent. The manual clearly states that mac resolutions are not supported. We won't let that stop us. Step one is to download switchresx. It's a simple utility that should allow you to define custom resolutions. http://www.madrau.com/ .
Step 2 is to download chicken of the VNC. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/9517 . Once this is installed on a separate mac from the one you are trying to connect to the maxent take your mini and hook it up to the RGB port on the maxent and boot it up. Once this is done use chicken of the vnc to take control of of the mini with the other mac. Now you can change the resolution on the mini using switchresx which you installed on the mini earlier. In the case of the maxent you will need to set it to 1366x768 at 60 hz. If using another flat panel consult your user manual for the correct resolution. In my opinion there is no flat paned tv this should not work for.
Good luck!

How do you hook the up


Use the instructions that came with the device for full details. Their site is down, so you can't get a manual online at this time.
Usually, all you need is video input (a cable connection) and power.
If you have a straight cable line (no box), coax cable connection is will work if supported.
If you have a box, the better cables support the RGB and audio split, and will give you a better quality picture.
Be sure all are secure connected, and that if you use the RGB/Audio split connection, be sure each matches the color coding on the connector.

How do i use my tv as pc monitor?


Here are specs for your tv
you need a dvi to hdmi cable similar to this one here
or this for US
ask also to your local reseller.
If your pc does not have dvi output you can try a vga to hdmi converter cable, I do not know if vga one will work on your tv.

Maxent edtv monitor 42 inch- how to use as a pc monitor


You'll need an adapter suited to the two ends of the the devices.

An adapter where one end fits the back of the PC graphics card ouput where you would normally plug the pc monitor, and the other end fits the back of your tv input.

If you're using windows, right click on desktop, Properties, Display settins, and choose your TV's name from the list.
