Most LCD displays have an input select button to choose the TV ot PC display. You just press the button and it cycles thru the options. Normally starting with VGA, then DVI and then the remaining input options.

How to switch from analog to digital mode


Any contemporary monitor is able to switch analog/digital mode automatically if connection from signal source to monitor is set up properly.

Connect digital output from your graphic card to DVI input of the monitor. Disconnect any other signal cables from monitor and switch on both devices (PC & monitor). Wait a while. Monitor checks its inputs and a activates digital DVI, because it is only one active input on it.

If none picture excluding error message of monitor is displayed, go through these steps:
1) Check whether your monitor is set for automatic input selection. If monitor buttons have no response try to use analog input to activate screen (any picture, desktop background...) and then get monitor menu access by pressing menu button.

2) Find out what connector type has your graphics card in PC. Possibilities are: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and some their options. See Wikipedia for connector look if you are not sure.
Remember that blue D-SUB (VGA) connectors are analogue and you cannot activate digital mode through analog VGA cable.

3) Use appropriate cable to connect monitor to PC.
Example: Your PC has HDMI output. Use HDMi-to-DVI cable. Your monitor input is DVI and common DVI-DVI cable is not suitable in case you have PC with the HDMI.
Note that DVI-to-DVI, DisplayPort-to-DVI etc. cables are available. You must buy right one.

Be aware that "Auto" button is inactive in digital mode of monitor.

I want to connect my Xbox 360 to my aoc f22+ monitor so I bought a hdmi to d-sub cable to plug the Xbox into the monitor as it didn't have a hdmi input. The screen just shows a blank image and the only...


You need a HDMI to DI cable not HDMI to d-sub cable. The sellers that are selling that cable do not tell you that it will only work with special video cards that output analog to the HDMI connector. HDMI is digital and so is DVI so they will adapt to each other. Keep in mind that this is for video only, sound will not work on the monitor because the DVI port does not support sound. You will need to add a set of speakers to the Xbox

Dual Monitors - why does my second monitor have bad picture?


As long as something isnt broken, using the HDMI and the D-Sub should be fine. From your fuzzy pictures I suggest that you want to double-check your cables.

Have you tried to switch it? If you put the second monitor on the D-SUB and the picture is still faulty, its very likely the problem is your monitor.

Can I hook up my vh242h monitor to satelite box and if so what connections do I need


First, look on the back of your satellite box and look for one of the first 3 connectors on this site:
http://ixbtlabs.com/articles3/video/guide-p5.html

They depict D-Sub, DVI-D, and HDMI ports which are all compatible with your monitor. I would suggest HDMI, but any would work fine. You can get these cables at any electronics store (BestBuy, Walmart, etc.).

If you don't have any of these connectors on your satellite box, you will need to get a converters such as this:
http://www.amazon.com/Wired-Up-Premium-7-62M-Component-Cable/dp/B000QEDE76

If these links don't help, reply with what model satellite box you have and I can provide more specific instructions.

Good Luck!

Just got a new computer (compaq) and I am unable to connect the monitor to the desktop. Any suggestions? Is there an adapter that I can buy to allow me to use the e-machines monitor?


Typically it depends on the monitor and the connectors on the back of said monitor. Most model monitors that came out within the past 3-5 years have a usb port, hdmi, D-sub, DVI, or just a basic Analog connector. If you can identify the Connection on the back of your monitor and a video connector on your compaq machine as well I can Recommend a specific adapter for you. Also check out some electronic websites for further help.
