    Hi All

    I have a pw6, I want to connect my pc to my plasma, do i just get a male vga lead and connect it from my pc to the vga on plasma so I can play games.?

    I watch sky through the vga on plasma, how can i have both pc and sky without having to unplug from plasma each time?

    A quick reply would be appreciated

    Many Thanks

    Steve

    You could get a manual VGA switch for not too much money, I think maplins do one. That would save the unplugging. You have a VGA converter of some sort, I take it? The PC is just as easy to connect, you can run it at XGA at it's simplest, or you can experiment with different 16:9 resolutions, some games support them, some don't. Some modern graphics cards are fully equipped for this, and give you the option of 852/480 ie native res, and the other one to try is 1280/720, which enables you to run a sensible windows desktop, 480 lines is a bit too small. You will be bombed with messages telling you to run a higher resolution.
