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.

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 do i use my hdtv connection? how do i use it? i want to connect my laptop to my mitsubishi wt-46805 to use as a monitor, can i do that? if so how?


You may also find that you have to change your resolution settings a few times to get the right one for your tv. If both TV and laptop have S-video connections that is a pretty safe bet for connecting both together( small round with four connections)
just a thought, hhope you get sorted :)

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.
