42WLT66 Connection to PC


Standard Member
After some advice; I want to connect my toshiba 42wlt66 lcd screen to my PC. What is the best way of doing this with the best quality of picture?

My PC has 1 VGA, 1 composite and 1 s-video outputs. I know composite is not great so the way i see it i have 3 options:

1) Buy a VGA splitter or input selector box (are these OK - will i lose quality?) and buy a long VGA cable to go to the TV in the other room.

2) Buy a long s-video cable and use that.

3) Buy a new graphics card which has a DVI output and a DVI-HDMI converter.

What do people think?

Ah OK. Thats a really informative link. Looks like I'll be getting a cheap dvi graphics card then...

Make sure you buy an nVidia based one. The 42/47WLT66 does not get on well with 1080i from ATI based cards.

Cool. I've always had nvidia cards so i would be inclined to buy another, but this enforces my decision.
