    Hi,

    I currently have a Panny 42" PW7 with only a component input and everything runs through my dvd recorder via a component lead, had it for a while and its been fantastic, but i now want to hook a media centre pc to it, there dosn't seem to be a DVi input on screen or recorder, what are my options.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    You could buy the DVI blade (ty-42tm6d )
    which fits in the slots at the back of the screen

    just use VGA connectio from PC to panel (it has a VGA input) use a 1280x720 for desk top for film images and enjoy

    DVi is far more limited especially for film material
