Any Solution for lack of PC Input for Panasonic TH-42PX77U?

by 2am2sd / October 9, 2007 11:57 AM PDT

I'm interested in the Panasonic TH-42PX77U plasma. It does not have a PC input however.

I know its possible to add HDMI inputs to certain TV's...can one add a PC input to this TV? If so, any recommendations for PC inputs or recommendations where to buy one? Thanks in advance.

you've got two hdmi inputs on that TV and more. what you don't have is a normal computer connection. rather than trying to add that to the TV, just buy a video card for your computer that has a connection for the cables the TV will accept.

Thanks - how could I do this with a laptop? I'd like to hook up my laptop to the TV.

I did a quick web search but I didn't find a laptop card to do what you need and converters are available but expensive. you may need a TV with a VGA input.
