Philips 20pf5120/28 Calibration for gaming using DVI Input


lololol HD to standard video - standard video back to HD is going to cause some issues. Go straight HD to HD with a hdmi to dvi instead. Even if your tv cant do HD theres a loss of information and signal for every adapter you put in and the length of the cord.

Bought the belkin vga audio video cable to hook up my pc to my sony 52" lcd tv but the connecion in back of the tv is much bigger than the vga. is there others way of making it work?


It is possible that the connection behind your tv is DVI.
Do you have a DVI out from your video card on your pc? It would look like the same port from the back of your TV. If you have HDMI or DVI out from your pc you can interconnect to an HDMI or DVI to the back of you tv. All of the adapters and cables exist. The only thing you can't (yes you can but too expensive and impractical and rare) to do is to go from VGA to HDMI / DVI. You can go from HDMI / DVI to VGA but not the other way around.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I have bought LG LCD ld310 . Can I connect my computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable Thanks Jatinder Kumar


Hi Jatinder Kumar ,
Yes you can connect your computer output to lcd tv through dvi-hdmi cable or vga-hdmi cable.
1. Connect to HDMI (DVI) : just plug in HDMI (DVI) out of PC or laptop to HDMI or DVI TV. Than select source from HDMI.
2. Connect to PC : Plug D sub to TV, select PC in.

I hope that will help you.
thanks.

What do I need to hook it up to an hdtv...what type of cables..DVI-D to HDMI?


Your laptop will need a HDMI output or a DVI output for HD video. If your laptop only has a VGA out the your tv will need a VGA or DVI input. You could use a vga to dvi adapter if your tv does not have a vga connector. They do have a DVI to HDMI adapter but there are a couple of problems with that. One you will not get the sound and the TV will only obtain sound from HDMI cable when connected that way and Two the TV will have problems processing the signal from the computer due to the HDMI will only process the HD signals at certain formats and the computer video can send out many different signals. I tried and I could not get my tv to process the signal so I got a video card that has a HDMI out and my blu-ray player works great.

How do i connect my laptop to my lcd to watch films off the net


Depending on how old your laptop is, or what make it is, you may have few or several options. Some manufacturers have their own proprietary adapters/dongles for video out, but most at least give you VGA out, and others may have DVI, or the newest: an HDMI connector at the back.
If a proprietary dongle is provided, you're stuck with whatever it is they offer. It could be as poor as composite video (3 leads: yellow, white and red), S-Video (better), or best: component video for HD viewing. The first one offers you standard 640 x 480 definition, at 4:3 viewing ratio, while component offers you 1080i, using three leads to connect your
laptop to the LCD. Fortunately, most LCDs have component connectors. If the latter is available, this would be a great option, provided your LCD supports at least 720p, considered to be HD, though not the highest HD. The highest is 1080p.
Depending where you are in this wide scenario, the main thing is to get your LCD TV (I assume) hooked up the right way. The simplest way is to connect it using VGA, assuming your LCD has VGA as an input option. The next one would be to find an adapter to make the match. eg: DVI to HDMI, or vice versa; or VGA to DVI, etc. However the ideal one would be to have matching connectors at both the laptop and the LCD TV: HDMI to HDMI, or DVI to DVI, or component leads at both ends.
Good luck!

Can i connect toshiba satellite a205 to tv?


Yes VGA carries RGBHV--RGB and Horizontal and Vertical Sync information along with DDC info where available.

Now is that port on your TV a d-sub 15 pin standard VGA connector?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.

However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...
