    Has anyone actually tried Sharp LC32GA5E with a PC connection running 1366x768 and one to one.

    Sharp say that it has a max res of 1280* 768 from PC. I cant't find a manual for this model. Other Sharps state support in the manuals



    Sharp also said that the max res for the GA3, GA4 and GD1 is the same. But the manuals claim support and people seem to have this working here

    Hi Starfish..

    Problem with the 5 series is that it does not have a dvi input, this makes connecting up a pc a real pain, you might be able to do it at SVHS :( but I would not fancy you would get much of a result...

    The sets referred to in the link that I can see are 4 and 3 series that have the DVI input :thumbsup:

    This model has a standard analogue PC VGA input.

    It could not be any easier to connect your PC, just plug it in and the Sharp will recognise it.

    jerkyboy,

    Thanks that was my understanding atandard Dsub - ckeced inthe shop this morning.

    But my main concern is resolution - Do you know the max resolution it can support. because alot of sets can't support more than 1280 from a pc.

    If someone has a manual can they have a look at the supported PC resolutions please - normally about 6-10 listed :lease:

    Hi,

    I have just checked the manual for you.

    PC compatibility chart is as follows...

    VGA (640 x 400) (720 x 400) (640 x 480)
    WVGA (848 x 480)
    SVGA (800 x 600)
    XGA (1024 x 768)
    WXGA (1280 x 720) (1280 x 768)
    SXGA (1280 x 1024)

    Vertical frequenc y 60hz for all of the above.

    As an addition, is there any real advantage in connecting standard home cinema kit (DVD player, SKY+ etc using RGB scart output) into the Analogue PC input on this TV? (not even sure if this is possible anyway!)

    Thanks that means my choices have now changed

    LC32GD1E vs Relisys RLT3200

    My intention is to connect a Media PC, not standard Hifi stuff into the Dsub.

    Back to the drawing board I guess

    On the subject of connecting AV sources to your LCD....I was previously looking to get a plasma and was told that the best picture from a sky source is to use scart to VGA.....but you will need to get a decent quality cable which does this....JS Technology is the most commonly cited one.

    I purchased the sharp 26" GA3E as an interim measure before getting the larger plasma...I also plan to connect a PC in the future...that is why I went for the GA3E...the DVI connection is best.

    I think someone mentioned elsewhere on the forum having succeeded with 136x/768 resolution with VGA (even though not mentioned on manual it seems ??)
    Can anyone confirm this?
    Is it possible to get a 1:1 pixel mapping or at least in overall, a decent picture from PC?

    By the way,manual for english can be found here (I was unable to get direct link to it).
