Hello everyone.

Looking to purchase a 40-42" 1080p lcd in the £7-900 range (Sony or Panasonic peferably).

I intend to connect it to a PC occasionally so want to be able to run it at its native 1920*1080 resolution.

Anyone out there with a simliar set up tested and working?

Thanks

Humbuck

All LCD from Sony and all Plasmas and LCDs from Panasonic don't accept 1920x1080 over VGA. It seems only Samsung (A650, A750, A850, A950) and LG (LG60, LG61, LG70) sets accept 1920x1080 over VGA.

Actually I think a lot of owners with the Sony KDLW4000 have there Xbox 360 running through VGA at 1080p, so it can be done. Dont know about any other Sony TV's though as I have only read through the W4000 thread.

I think some have it working and some don't, but it isn't officially supported. I believe it's not listed in the manual under the suport resolutions, just over HDMI.

If someone specifically wants a TV for 1080p over VGA, then it's a bit of a gamble. HDMI is always a better choice though.
