Panasonic Toughbook to HDTV

by mcf692001 / April 2, 2009 12:41 PM PDT

I'm trying to hook a Panasonic Toughbook 30 to an HDTV to basically use as an oversized monitor The problem I've run into is the TV doesn't have USB inputs, it has DVI, HDMI, And S-video. Anyone have any suggestions as to the best setup?, USB to DVI/HDMI/S, VGA to DVI/HDMI/S ????????

The cost is not the concern, it is the convenience. I found another laptop we have with an S-Video output to use, but I'm going to look into purchasing a newer model with DVI output to use with both the TV and Powerpoint projector....

Thanks again for your help
