    :lease:

    Ive got about a grand to spend, I want to put all my toys (ie PC and PS2) through one tv. I assumed LCD would be best (although I'm a bit unsure about some plasmas)

    I was thinking of the philips 32PF5520D.

    Can anyone see any problems with conecting a PC so that I can use wireless keyboard and mouse and sit on my sofa using it?

    Is this sort of LCD best for my needs? I picked that one, because the resolution was quite high.

    Thanks in advance!

    If it's got a DVI, HDMI, VGA or Component in then you can feed a PC into it. I think VGA is probably the simplest (correct me if I'm wrong but people seem to have issues with DVI) and would just be a question of selecting the 1:1 resolution to the displays screen res. DVI and HDMI (with DVI-HDMI adaptor) should be the same, then most gfx cards nowadays have a component adaptor which can output 720p or 1080i which your screen should accept.

    A post in the HTPC forum might get better answers? HTH :)
