    Well, I tried to search this forum to find an answer to my question but I was unable to...

    I am looking for a way to:

    • connect my PC to my Sony plasma TV but it doesn't have any VGA
    • be able to see 2 video sources (ideally from 2 TV tuners) in a PIP mode
    I also would like to take advantage of the full 1024x1024 resolution of the plasma... but it only has analogic inputs. Can a VGA signal be fed to it?

    My question is: is there any mediabox, tv tunner, whatever, that can receive these signals and send it to the KE-42TS2E (RGB, components..)? And be able to combine signals in PIP?

    (If I remember correctly, a few years ago there were VHS recorders that were able to do the PIP from 2 video sources... are there any DVD recorders that can do this? Even if it doesn't have 2 tuners, it would be ok).

    Thanks

    RS

    You can buy PinP devices, they are usually composite only though, that might be a bit grim. The only way to get PC on your plasma is with a graphics card with video output. S-video is common, you can get cards that do component, at a price. Not very encouraging I'm afraid.
