Question about Philips 60PW9363 60" Rear Projection Television

Connecting Computer to HDTV

I have the DVI connection in the back of my TV, but I keep getting conflicting advice as to how to connect my computor to my TV. Some say use a router, some say it's not necessary, use cables. I can't find cables to match both ends correctly. Do you know exactly what I need to use to get my computer (watching streaming downloaded movies from Netflix & watching Internet TV Stations) to connect to my TV to do what I want?

If you use a graphics card with an S-Video output that allows you to connect to an S-Video input you can use that. Most computer graphic cards now a days come with an attachment that makes the S-Video output into a Component type connection which allows a 1080i image to be displayed on TV's. This is how I connected mine and you will have to mess with the color a bit to get it looking the way it suppose to.

I'm going to give you the hard truth about the Philips xx9363 series - I have never had a successful case of connecting a PC to this TV, so if the following works, let me know right away - your experience can benefit others.

In theory, if you use an HDMI to DVI connector, change your PC resolution to 800 x 600 with a 60Hz refresh rate, and make sure that you have a video card in your PC then you should be able to get a picture from PC to this computer. If this works, please let me know.

How do i set up multi screen on my 42" HDTV Insignia


You may use an HDMI / DVI cable to connect to your computer. Next if you have windows 7 hold your windows key and hit the letter "P" (for projector) this will allow you to bring on the multi-montior feature on your computer. Make sure to select the option that says EXTEND. Please note that when connecting a DVI device you must use the HDMI IN1 (dvi) jack on the back of your TV. you cannot use HDMI In 2.

1. Turn off your TV and all connected equipment.
2. Connect an HDMI/DVI cable or DI-HDMI adapter between the HDMI in 1 (dvi) jack on the back of your TV and DVI OUT jack on the DVI device.
3. Connect an audio cable between the DVI audio IN jacks on the back of your tv and the DVI audio jack on the dvi device.
turn on the tv then turn on the dvi device.

I have connected my computer to the TV with a HDMI DVI cable and still no sound through the TV.


there is a specific conflict between a pc and hdmi-dvi and producing audio. you may want to research a special dvd-hdmi cable that vizio sells, check your users manual. if you still get the same issue be sure the specs are correct and make sure your tv is capable of this type of connection, if you still can not get it, you may need to replace the main board in the unit.

Hello
VGA and DVI are not compactable. Your TV has no provision to connect it to computer.

DVI-HDTV Input (Input 1)

Use this DVI-HDTV Input for your external devices with DVI-HDTV output such as a Set-Top-Box, high-band DTV decoders, DVD
players and D-VHS with Digital Content Protection

1. Only DTV format such as 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p are available for DVI-HDTV input.

2. The DVI-HDTV input is NOT compatible when used with a DVD player from a personal computer.

3. When connecting a Set-Top-Box with a copy-protect digital out terminal, a high definition picture can be displayed
on the screen in its digital form
OK.

How could i connect this tv to laptop


Connect by this way:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You'll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC's are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won't find a VGA port on regular TV's though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with "digital" being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.

I have an r52wh74 tv. cant get it to display 720p


Hello Matiki64:

Yes this television does support 720p and 1080i. Hear is something that might solve your problem or at least get you going in the right direction.

Problems with DVI-HDTV Connection
• Make sure the DVI device is turned on and the cables are firmly connected. If problems still occur, turn off your device. Re-connect
your device. Reset the power by unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in.
• If you are tuned to the DVI-HDTV input and you’re receiving Unusable Signal message on-screen, contact the manufacturer of the
DVI device for further assistance.
• If you tune to the DVI-HDTV input and you see snow, the video goes in and out, or the video takes a long time to appear, your DVI
device is having trouble sending video information to the TV. Re-connect your device. Reset the power by unplugging the power
cord and plugging it back in. If problems persist, try connecting to the Y Pb Pr jacks instead if they are available or contact the
manufacturer of the DVI device for further assistance.
• If you have bars on each side of your picture, the device you connected might have a switch or a menu option allowing you to
change the picture format output that will fix this. Choose either 720p or 1080i.

VIZIO VO42LF says no signal when connect to PC after power on/off


Could be a sensitivity problem, have you tried to switch tv modes back and forth, sometimes if you do that it will save you from restarting the computer. I had a tv about 10 years ago that had a sensitivity issue, went to see about fixing it, unfortunately, the tv brand was no longer in the country and user service parts were not available.

Connecting my computer


If both your tv and computer has VGA connectors you need a VGA cable. If both have DVI connectors you need a DVI-connector. If your TV only has HDMI I believe you can use a DVI to HDMI converter plug.

For the manual first check out the manufacturers pages. Many have the manuals for download to save on production costs by not printing the manual. You may also try to google it. Search like this:
