    Hello,,

    i've bought a Panasonic Plasma TH-42PW6 and i would like to connect mi PC with a ATI Radeon 9700 to this Plasma so that i can see -email and play games...

    Could someone please help me to do so ???

    I've tried to conecct the cable of my monitor to the rear of the plasma on the PC INPUT connector but notging happen's....

    i've managed to see image only by TV-Out(S-Video) of the VGA to the tuner TU-PT600E but quality is too poor,,

    Should i buy some special cable ???
    Should i lower resolution ??? to what kind of frequency ???

    Thank's for any help you can give,,,

    Since you are using the PT600 TV tuner, turn it off (power switch) and the pc input on your plasma display will be enabled.

    The PT600 disables the pc and serial input on the display. The manual for the PT600 mentions this.

    thank you for your reply,,

    curious_jorge,,
    indeed you are right i switched the tuner and got image from my vga connector, but only with tuner cable out, funny !!!
    but a have a satelite receiver and a xbox connected to the tuner, does this means a have to switch off the tuner ( take cable out ) every time i want to see pc image ??

    is there a way or hardware to send image from pc throw scart with the same quality of the vga input ?? some vga->scart conversor ?????

    thank's in advance for any help you can give,,
