Wouldn't recommend it. Also too low resolution for the screen size, and not enough desktop space.

I'd use the plasma as secondary when using it for video playback, and just have a 17-22" LCD as primary.

Pretty sure the PE50 has a VGA port on it!

If so best to use a VGA-VGA cable (VGA from PC to VGA on display) and set the PC to output 852x480.

It's not a simple as getting a VGA - Component cable as conversion/converter is required to do this right or a suitable graphics card that can output component on a break out adapter!

HTH.
