If you do go there dont waste your money on the Monster Cable one, get the Acoustic Research one or go to a computer store like a Office Max and get the cheapie there.

Here are some cheaper ones you can order. I am going to pick up a dvi to component.

Just get a cheap DVI cable... They'll try to say stuff like "omg gold plated monster cable with 0% oxygen" or something STUPID like that..lol.

Buy the cheapest one that'll fit...

I would definatly use the DVI input if it has it. Luckily, my Sony has HDMI input on it, so I bought a 3' cable with HDMI on one end and DVI on the other, looks pretty good, actually, looks damn good.

Although as was mentioned, and I didn't realize this until later too, the resolution will be limited in many applications. But still, it's 42"!!!!

1280x1024 looks great when it's on a 42"

Does yours fill the screen at that resolution when gaming?

Hhmmm, good question, I'll have to look. I know I set my desktop to 1024x800 as that seems to be best for desktop, any smaller and it goes off the screen, and there is about a 1" gap on each side, but I think when I played BF2142 it stretched to fit, but I could be wrong. I'll fire it up when I get home and check for you. Interesting to note, I can set higher resolution in my desktop (although even 1024x800 is hard to read from the couch, trying to tweak that), but BF2142 wouldn't allow past 1280x1024....not sure if that is because it's a demo or what. I could swear C&C Generals let me go to 1600x1200, but again, my memory is fuzzy. Must be the age

^^Same thing with BF2142, it just errors and that its.

Just checked, BF21 at 1280x1024 leaves about 1" on left and right and about 1/2" top and bottom of screen not used.

I'm installiing Civ 4 right now, we'll see what resolutions it allows and see how good it looks, it's system requirements are alittle higher IIRC. I know it supports higher resolutions, so we shall see....

BTW, using 1152x648 for my desktop, it leaves about the same gaps on side but is easier to read the boards from my couch and still has good desktop room.

Goodmorning all,

Well I purchased a DVI cable, the image on my TV still looks like crap, (real blurry and jumpy!)

Anyone have any suggestions as to why?

It's a Panasonic Cinema Vision 47" rear projection TV Model PT 47WX53G, HDTV 1080i, bought new in 2003.

It's like the image on the TV is double imposed and flickering also?

I found out (after reading the TV's owners manual) that it does have a DVI connection, but the TV does not support a connection with a PC.

Thanks for the responses anyway guy's!

Looks like next time I will read the owners manual first, ( you know how that goes!)

I'll chaulk this one up to experience after paying about $50 for DVI and RGB cables that I no longer need.
