TV reviews category omission

by JohnGalt61 / July 6, 2012 10:57 PM PDT

I'm trying to review HDTV's but with a specific use in mind. I want to use the TV as a computer monitor in a business conference room setting. None of the reviews really address their relative advantages/disadvantages with this use in mind.

In the past, when I've tried hooking up a TV to a computer, what was a perfectly fine TV picture seemed significantly degraded when hooked up to a computer. Maybe the settings weren't tweaked for optimum performance but couldn't CNET also review the TV's as to their specific performance as a computer monitor in addition to thier performance when displaying a TV signal?

BTW, why isn't there a TV category in the forum pull-down menu? Surely there are lots of questions about TV's.

Doubtful this can be done.

I've seen this but found the owner was not ready to dive into the video settings of Windows or the display.

In fact, this makes a fine case of how (most of the time) you use all Apple gear and it works without the owner becoming an expert.

My advice is to keep learning about your PC and settings.

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?
