Problem connecting DVI input of TV to DVI-D output of video card

I have never been able to connect a video card to the TV. The video card output is DVI-D. The TV input is just DVI. I tried an adapter between the 2, and no success.

As a result, I've been forced to use a DVI-D to VGA adapter and sacrifice quality.

Does anyone else have this problem?

For error code 0122, Don't play the movie or load your movie program until you have the resolution you want and have it set to display only on the hdtv . You do this by going to control panel, selecting "adjust common used mobility settings", and then clicking on "connect display. A pop-up will come up and give you the option to display only on the external display. Pick that. The thing that sucks is if you have the display set to 1920 x 1080, you can't see everything on your desktop when trying to view it on the tv.

HOW DO I PLAY A DVD USING Hitachi Flat Panel Television 32HDL51 (ITS CONNECTED THROUGH HDMI CABLE)


Page 18 of the manual, you shouldn't need to do steps 2 or 3.

CONNECTING A COMPONENT SOURCE WITH HDMI or DVI CAPABILITY TO INPUT 1 or INPUT 2
1.Connect the HDMI or DVI to HDMI connection cable from the output of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the HDMI input as shown on the AVC Center below.
2.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT R of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/R) jack.
3.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT L of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/L) jack.
4.Press the INPUTS button, then select INPUTS 1 or 2 to view the program from the HDTV set top box or DVD player. The VIDEO OSD label disappears automatically after approximately four seconds.
5.Select ANT A or B from the INPUTS menu to return to the previous channel.
NOTES:1. Completely insert the connection cord plugs when connecting to rear panel jacks. The picture and sound that is played back will be abnormal if the connection is loose.
2. The HDMI input on INPUT 1 or 2 contains the copy protection system called High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). HDCP is a cryptographic system that encrypts video signals when using HDMI connections to prevent ******* copying of video contents.
3.HDMI is not a "NETWORK" technology. It establishes a one-way point-to-point connection for delivery of uncompressed video to a display.
4.The connected digital output device controls the HDMI interface so proper set-up of device user settings determines final video appearance.

How do i get my westinghouse sk 26h730s monitor to work with my HP desktop computer with windows XP?


There should not be a driver required for this. As long as your HP desktop has a VGA video or HDMI video output, you can connect to the back panel of the TV from the video port of the PC. Then, on the remote, select the "PC" option for VGA input, or HDMI for the HDMI 1 or 2 input(s). If the PC only has DVI output, then it is important to know if the output is analog or digital. If it is digital (DVI-D or DVI-DD] then there is no available port on the TV to support it. Using a DVI-VGA adapter on a DVI digital output will not work as there must be a digital-to-analog conversion in order to work.

How do I connect my PS3 to my sanyo dp50747 in hdmi? I have everything hooked up correctly, but its not coming up on the TV. What do I do?????


If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.

How can I connect Panasonic TH-37PX60U Flat panel plasma tv to my computer?


It will depend on your video output options on the computer. If you have HDMI output, just use an HDMI cable and an audio cable (this will need to be a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable). If you have a DVI output, use a DVI to HDMI cable and the audio cable (or a DVI to HDMI adapter and either a DVI or HDMI cable depending on which side you want to put the adapter). If you only have VGA out from the computer, use a VGA to DVI adapter and the DVI to HDMI connection and the audio connection. (Theoretically this should work but each adapter will have some signal loss issues.)

Some graphics cards have a video output, S-video or Component video, which would also connect to your TV with the audio cable. (Read your cards manual for more information)

I hope this helps.

(For DVI to HDMI cables, you will need to check if you have a single link or dual link DVI output. The wrong cable may not work.)

I want to connect this pc to LCD TV want know where is the audio output of the computer


LCD TVs are the best at showing computer graphics, so many come with PC video connection ports by default. If it does have one of these ports, all you need to do is get a cable to connect to it. This is usually a male-male cable. Be warned, however - stores like Best Buy and the like tend to horribly overcharge for cables. Check prices online at places like www.newegg.com - I found some from $6-$10 with $5 shipping. They'll probably be $25 minimum in a store. Also, if it's a DVI connection, don't get a DVI-A cable - that's for analog connections. DVI-D is for digital connections (specifically for connecting to LCD screens) and DVI-I cables are for both, but be sure to get a DVI-D cable.

Check out this link and look at the picture of the DVI-D and DVI-A connectors:

http://www.pacificcable.com/DVI.htm#DVI_Hoods

My video card has a DVI-I output, but my monitor only has a DVI-D input, so I can't use a DVI-I cable on it (DVI-A and DVI-I both have 4 extra pins that DVI-D doesn't).

If it's got a VGA port then whoop-de-do. There's only one type of VGA cable anyway. ^_^ Source(s): http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Description=dvi+cable&x=0&y=0

Have Dell Dimension 2400 and wanting to connect to Emerson LD195EMX.. attach to PC Monitor connection but no scrren comes up/// WHat else can I do?


Is the PC monitor connection - a DVI or DVI-I connection a 15-pin VGA connection an RCA video connection?
Have you set the television input to match the connector used on the TV?
The display resolution on your computer may not be set to a resolution your TV can handle. There is no point trying to put a 1280 by 800 signal into a VGA connector. Start with 640 by 480. However, this will not give you the high resolution you have come to expect from your PC's monitor.
This set also has HDMI input. If your computer has a DVI or DVI-I output, you can buy an adapter that will connect to that HDMI input. Note that this will only handle the video portion of the output from your computer and you will have to use analog connections for the sound and figure out which TV menu input selections allow high definition video with analog sound (not all sets can do this).
Note that LED TVs are not like CRT TVs where an electron beam can put a dot anywhere on the screen. An LED TV has fixed resolution modes.
It might be necessary to use a software product like "PowerStrip" to create a custom resolution mode that will show a high resolution image that will fill the screen of your TV. I wound up using 1352 x 648 to give a full screen image on my LED TV using the HDMI input. ("Your mileage may vary.")
There is a lot more to connecting a high resolution computer display to an LED TV than just plugging it into the "PC Input".

No sound when my computer is connected to my Sony Bravia TV


If your computer has a svga output use input 7 on tv with vga to vga cable and 3.5-3.5 Radioshack 42-2387 cable for audio for best results. If you use the dvi to hdmi on input 6 on tv use 3.5- rca Radioshack part number 42-2551 1/8=3.5mm.

How to conect a pc to a panasonic plasma th50px75u?


Panasonic didn't make it a simple matter to connect a computer to this TV since they didn't include a VGA input connector. You can still do it, but it will require some adapters or changes to your PC.

If you're using a laptop, you have two options. If the laptop offers an s-video output, you can use a suitable cable from there to one of the set's s-video inputs. If there's no s-video output, the other option is to purchase a VGA-to-component breakout cable, available at a number of online vendors (search with Google). This cable has the VGA connector to the computer on one end, and 3 RCA plugs at the other end. You would use this cable into one of the set's component video inputs.

With a desktop PC, you can still use one of those two options. In addition, there may be a DVI video output connector available as well. This is not common on computers with integrated video, but is frequently found on many newer expansion video cards. If your computer has this connector (or you install a new video card with one), you can use a DVI-to-HDMI adapter and connect an HDMI cable to one of the set's HDMI inputs. Many video cards with DVI outputs include one of these adapters already.

So while it's not going to be simple, it's certainly possible to connect your PC to this TV.

Connecting an LCD TV to a computer to use as TV and Comp. Monitor.


Im no expert on the subject, but I use my L37 for a monitor, and use just the vga adapter. It works good as a monitor, and both dvds and my hdtv wonder tuner card look great through the vga connection. They do make adapters for dvi to hdmi. Although, hdmi also carries sound, but you wont get that out of your dvi output from your card. So you might not have sound when using that connection, as your tv may not look to the headphone type jack used for sound imput from your computer when you select the hdmi source on it. If you have speakers already connected to your computer you may not care. Also if you have a 720 p Vizio, 1366x768 is the highest resolution you are going to get out of it anyway, if I'm not mistaken. I'm Not sure why you would need 2 connectios to the same monitor either. I posted 1 link below because they had several dvi to hdmi adapters. Hope that helps.
