I will be getting my Panny 50LC13 delivered next weekend from Sears. Initially, I will hook it up to my video card at 1280 x 720 @ 60 Hz resolution through the RGB input (I have a Geforce2 Pro). Will that take up the full screen? Will there be any overcan (areas that run off the screen)? I've read about people hooking it up through the DVI Port. Is this better? Could someone recommend a video card that could output DVI to the Panny and RGB to my monitor at the same time, in some kinda clone mode. I will need to run different resolutions on each, 1280 x 720 on the Panny and 1024 x 768 on the monitor. I don't want to spend the money on a high end card, because I don't play that many games anymore. I just want it to do the job right. Mostly surfing and watching movies. BTW I just ordered a Microsoft Blue Tooth Keyboard and Mouse combo. Should be great in this setup.


Thanks in advance for any assistance,

I connected mine with VGA.


First I tried DVI and the picture was a little *&^* so I said what the heck, I fired up VGA and the text seems sharper/more easily read. Also, blacks seemed better and less SDE but that might be my imagination. I will have to do more tests comparing the two after the set is up and running good. The VGA is good, but wish it was better, however, since DVI is supposed to be better than VGA (digital vs. analog) I am hoping there is something I am doing wrong, and I can even improve on my "decent" picture.

I have my computer connected to the Panny via VGA (RGB1) and am using a GForce 3 Ti-500. I updated the video card drivers and 1280X720 is one of the supported resolutions. I believe I am using the one that's at 75 Hz, but there is an option for 60 Hz. There is NO overscan - I get the full desktop image. I use it for surfing the web and playing games, both regular and online. Needless to say, I am very pleased with the image quality on this set, in all modes/configs. One note: I have no interest in connecting my computer via DVI, thus I have not tried it. I'm saving DVI for D*.


Shameless plug: I highly recommend the Logitech wireless optical keyboard/mouse for HTPC use. It's great!


Here's a shot of the PC version of Counter-Strike on the Panny.
