    Hello Guys

    Im having a bit of trouble on setting up my pc to my LCD tv.
    What i've tried so far, is connected my graphics card from my pc to the tv by using a dvi-hdmi adapter and then hdmi to hdmi cable straight to my tv.
    All im getting is a blank screen, Do i need to activate a screen, or change any resolution settings, or output mode on my pc in order for it to pickup. I have a 32" Samsung which i belive goes up 1360x768
    Im not that technically clued up so any help would be well appreciated.

    Thanks,

    I run my PC through a Phillips 28" LCD TV

    I run a DVI connector from the back of the PC to the input of the screen.

    I have to select input as PC-D on the remote, which is PC-Digital teh other option is PC-A which i presume is PC-Anaologue.

    I had to change no settings on my PC and can run at a range of resolutions.

    If your currently got a cable between PC and TV check the remote for input settings, i.e. source and amke sure its Digital or DVI

    Yeah assuming that you have changed the Source or Input setting to HDMI to correspond with the input you are using, from your text it would seem HDMI.. I would try Rebooting the PC.

    At taht point, if it still does not work, there could be something wrong with your cable or converter, try using a DVI cable to your DVI slot on your tv or if you only have vga, then a dvi to vga converter and see if you get a signal by that input (obvioosuly changing the source/input each time to the one your are using).

    hi,

    For some reason on my tv using the source buttons i can only scroll through ext1,ext2,av and digital tv, the manual says s-video, component, pc and hdmi should be there too, but i cant see any.

    I have also tried using a straight vga connection pc to tv but again nothing came up.
