One piece of advice: don't buy a "VGA to component" cable. These cables are not compatible with computer monitor ports or Y/Cr/Cb video. They are meant to connect HDTV satellite/cable receivers to the RGB inputs (VGA connectors) on your HDTV.

This *may* not work, because the HDMI port on your EDTV may only accept regular "tv-type" resolutions and refresh rates. There are also HDCP issues to think about.

I have a Panny 42PD25. I has a PC input on the front. On page 19 of the manual it says it uses a D-sub 15 P connector. I have no idea what this is and have never tried hooking up my notebook to the TV. my old Dell Inspiron has a "video connector" and an S-video port. The manual says the s-video is for connection to TV and the video is for an external monitor.

Anyone know what kind of cable for hooking the video connector to the D-sub 15 P port on the TV?

yup, me too. its pretty much been my main monitor for well over 1 year now. mainly for web, movies, and xbox. the industrial model already has the pc input. again use at your own risk...results may vary!


recently took it off the wall and onto a stand that doesnt fit. now more likely to topple over than get burn in.


oh yea, without a good vid card, the text will look like **** as mine does with a dell onboard vid card.
