Is is possible to hook up a PC using the HDMI/DVI connection? I use my PC for DVD's and gaming. I know the 500U has VGA but i don't think it will price drop. Is the 50U just not meant to be connected to a PC at all?

As long as your graphics card on your computer has DVI out and you buy an HDMI to DVI cable I would think you will be in good shape. You would need this type of cable because the 50U only has HDMI in.


HDMI is the exact same as DVI except the HDMI has audio also.

I was wondering the same thing when I read the manual of the 500U. The 500U manual also shows this chart and the note :


"All signals will be re-formatted for viewing on your plasma display."


Wouldn't that make it diffucult to do any 1:1 pixel mapping or playing a game in a different resolution than the HDMI will accept?

Another question - do either the XX50 or XX500 series have direct input selection from the remote?
