TV as monitor

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm interested in using my TV as computer monitor but the resolution doesn't seem compatible, is that a common issue? It's a bravia tv and dell precision, thanks

That would be 0% useful information - I don't generally recommend using a TV as a dedicated monitor as depending on the size and resolution they can be anywhere from mediocre to terrible, you might want to list the resolution of your TV, the inputs that it has, why you think its incompatible, what it does / doesn't do, etc.

It's normal. TV's don't support high resolutions normally. Like mine only goes up to 1366x768, I think newer TV's have higher resolutions but not as much as a PC monitor (keep in mind the price for the resolution).

yeah you wont get a 1920 x 1080 with the tv , to get the best looking result set the tv to its highest resolution , use an hdmi and go into your grapjics settings on the pc and set them to the TV resolution .. But generally the are right its not going to do an amazing job of things but people build home theatre PCs all the time you just have to adjust the resolution .
