Can you connect a computer to the Panasonic TH-50PX77U?

by FlubFlav31 / December 10, 2007 5:38 AM PST

This TV does not have a computer input (inputs it does have listed below), so is it at all possible to connect a computer to this plasma TV?
Any help would be appreciated.

TH-50PX77U Inputs:
2 x HDMI ( 19 pin HDMI Type A ) - Rear, 2 x Audio line-in ( RCA phono ) - Rear, 2 x Component video input ( RCA phono x 3 ) - Rear, 1 x Composite video output ( RCA phono x 3 ) - Rear, 2 x Audio line-in - Rear, 1 x Audio line-out ( RCA phono ) - Rear

computers can be connected with a DVI to HDMI cable. I recommend Monoprice for it. Shoot, they used to have a sale on them for like 2 bucks. I guess it depends on your computer and/or your video card.

The audio connections should be self explanatory.

I did this stuff for my brother, but I never did this for myself. I don't have much else to add. You might try the computer forums here for better explanations or recommendations.

Make sure that your screen saver is engaged...

It says it has s-video input. Depending on your video card which you might want to upgrade if connecting to a large panel,you can use it. I have.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
