Re: how do you hook the up
Use the instructions that came with the device for full details. Their site is down, so you can't get a manual online at this time.
Usually, all you need is video input (a cable connection) and power.
If you have a straight cable line (no box), coax cable connection is will work if supported.
If you have a box, the better cables support the RGB and audio split, and will give you a better quality picture.
Be sure all are secure connected, and that if you use the RGB/Audio split connection, be sure each matches the color coding on the connector.

If your comcast box has video (yellow), audio R (Red), audio L (White) out, just connect RC cables to the input of the TV at video, audio-in RC Jacks. If your comcast box has only RF out, buy one RF to audio-video converter and then connect these to the TV.
Hello, Your Maxent MX-42EPM20 is not a TV (Television) it is a Plasma panel. The difference being your Panel does not a TV Tuner (no Coax jack or electronics relating to a tuner) Below is the spec sheet that shows this http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/maxent-mx-42epm20/4507-6482_7-32139310.html?tag=mncol;subnav
You can use a cable box or a cheap Digital TV receiver. You can buy them at walmart, You need one with A/V out puts such as Component. Here is a link to one. This will give you a tuner. http://www.walmart.com/ip/RCA-Digital-TV-Converter-Box-DTA800/8343230
A cable expansion kit box on which every connectable cable is directed towards achived the process. For example, an exampansion cable box convertor allows for every household media devices, VCRs, DVD players, DVR recorders to be connected. Thereafter the convertor box splits the signals to be transmited to the TV set. The TV require a convertor box kit, and high coaxible cable to distribute signals to the TV. consult techncial experts, examples are Cable TV, Disk network, satelite Tv installation experts. Goodluck
Recently, I dropped HBO with my cable company and there dont have a box. Since the Maxent 42 is only a monitor and doesnot have a tuner...there is no where to plug cable from the wall to the tv.
Solution...plug cable from wall to VCR/DVD and then use RCA cables (Red,White and Yellow cables) from output from VCR/DVD. works great.
I ran into the same problem with my "50 maxent. The manual clearly states that mac resolutions are not supported. We won't let that stop us. Step one is to download switchresx. It's a simple utility that should allow you to define custom resolutions. http://www.madrau.com/ . Step 2 is to download chicken of the VNC. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/9517 . Once this is installed on a separate mac from the one you are trying to connect to the maxent take your mini and hook it up to the RGB port on the maxent and boot it up. Once this is done use chicken of the vnc to take control of of the mini with the other mac. Now you can change the resolution on the mini using switchresx which you installed on the mini earlier. In the case of the maxent you will need to set it to 1366x768 at 60 hz. If using another flat panel consult your user manual for the correct resolution. In my opinion there is no flat paned tv this should not work for. Good luck!
Most likely you haven't set it up as a mirrored display. Try dragging your mouse off the edges of the original dispay (or laptop screen) and see if it shows up on the plasma, if it does, figure out of to mirror. Im not sure how to go about mirroring the display on windows, but on mac its an option in the display drop down menu.
