You are getting that message becuase the MAC video resolution is too high for the TV handle, you need to lower your MAC video resolution to the native resolution of the TV, read your manual to find out what it is.

I would like to use my Sylvania LC320ss8 Flat screen tv as a computer monitor but when I plug in the monitor plug the screen on the tv says format not supported. My operating system is Windows 7 and...


If you have connected the TV to the computer with a VGA cable, what resolution was your previous monitor using? You may need to change the resolution or refresh rate with your regular monitor attached. This TV has a native resolution of 1366 x 768 .

If you are connected via one of the HDMI ports, check the specifications for your TV. Then try using the VGA output. Not all TVs support a computer signal over HDMI. Unfortunately, I can't find the LC320ss8 at the Sylvania Support site: http://www.sylvaniaconsumerelectronics.com/ . If the model number has an error, click on Downloads and enter the correct model number.

I hope this helps.

When I connect my unibody macbook pro to my old tv using a vga to tv converter, my computer doesn't even recognize the disyplay.


When you connect your tv to your mac, make sure the cables are plugged into the TV first, and then plug your mac into the computer.
But a vga to tv converted doesn't make much sense. Your connection should be mini-display from your mac, to an adapter to either VGA, DVI, or HDMI depending on your TV connection type.

FORMAT NOT SUPPORTED FOR PS3


If it's one of the original PS3's (might be the same for the new) you can hold the power button down when you're powering it up until it beeps and then let go of the power button. This will make the PS3 search for what video devices are plugged in. If you're using the HDMI it will say "An available HDMI device was detected. Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?", and you wan to say YES. Then it will automatically set the resolution (should set to 1080i) and give you 30 seconds to confirm the video works by saying YES again. This TV will not support a 1080p output so if you try to change the PS3 to 1080p resolution it will not work.

I have also received this message when I had a bad HDMI cable.

My sylvania monitor is say format not suppoted when i connect it to my mac


You did not specify Mac model nor connection cable. Let me make a stab at it. ED means this is a 480-line interlaced or progressive, not sure. So you will need to select 640x480 plain or stretched. This based on what my MacBook Early 2009 white allows. I assume you are using an HDMI or DVI connection from a mini-DVI (mine) or the newer mini-DisplayPort. (I bought an ~$10 adaptor from monoprice.) -Ken

PS3 (Pal) won't connect to Sylvania HD TV


I just figured it out last night - if you have used your playstation on an hd tv previously, it is set at the highest resolution possible - 1080p. You need to take it back to that tv, and go to display settings on your tv. If you select HDMI as they type of connection you'd like to make, it asks you what resolution your tv supports. In your tv instruction guide, it should give you this information. Check mark all of the resolutions your tv supports, making sure not to confuse 1080i and 1080p. After doing this you can take it back to your other television and it should work.
