    Default "HD Ready" TV as pc monitor ?

    I?m considering buying a 23 inch hd ready tv (Samsung) to use as a pc monitor and screen for a stand alone dvd player and xbox 360.
    It seems to have the right specs and all the necessary connections, but are there any technical issues that I need to know about before I part with my hard earned cash ?.
    I?d be grateful for some advice.

    Hi Arriach, welcome to Pureoverclock

    Although this has no revilance to the topic, i have deleted a similar post you made in the "Crysis on notebook" thread. The origional message was:

    Im considering getting a 23 inch "hd ready" tv with hdcp (Samsung) and using it as a screen for my pc, stand alone dvd player and xbox 360. It appears to have all the necessary connections that Id need. Theoretically it should be great but are there any technical issues that I need to know about ?
    Id be grateful for any advice.:rolleyes:
    Double posting is a no no here

    In regards to your question - What monitor will you be purchasing? LCD or Plasma. I used a 42" plasma on my Rig a few months ago through a D-Sub connector, the quality was acceptable, not to mention how good my games looked. I'm sure you're familiar with the pros and cons of LCD and Plasma (refresh rates, pixel burning etc.) For PC use i'd get an LCD, but for TV use i'd use Plasma - but the decision is up to you.

    Thanks for your reply Ciro. Sorry about the other post, I thought that I?d deleted it. This thread is posted under "Monitors" because that?s what I?m planning to use the tv for.
    About the "HD" telly - I am leaning towards an lcd tv and plan to connect three different things to it, which all operate at different resolutions. A PAL DVD player, a pc and an xbox 360. Would the tv automatically adjust to the one which was powered up at the time or could there be problems with the resolutions ?
    You can watch PAL DVDs from the xbox 360 so it must be able to adjust something ...?
    I?d be grateful for some (more) advice.
    Thanks.

    why not go for a monitor instead of HDTV? 23" is well within the range of monitors, you could get a 24", unless its too expensive.

    I?ve thought about a monitor, although I?m happy with the one I?ve got at the moment, a 20 inch tft with 5ms etc. (Samsung Syncmaster 204.
    The mean reason for considering a hdtv is the different connections it offers - hdmi, scart etc. - I could hook up everything to one screen but avoid the fag of going through Windows every time I wanted to watch a dvd. (The xbox 360 is too loud to watch dvds on).
    By the way, I?m only considering this xbox 360 variation as a cheaper and temporary alternative to a new gaming pc, my current one is driving me up the wall. (I have another thread going under "Software" , where I am trying to get some advice about the ATI Tray Tool).

    Not too many monitors that support HDMI is available on the market at the moment.

    I think it will be ok if you're only use to watch DVD and play Xbox. Why not get a little bigger screen TV? 23" screen for a TV is not big enough to wath a wide screen movie.

    Thanks for the info? Deton, it looks really good !
    I was looking at the inputs and aren?t sure about something, is a composite input the same as a Scart input ?

    No, it's not the same.
    SCART connection is a 21pin connector, Composite is a RCA connector, single input. Check it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Composite.jpg but you can get a cable from SCART to composite connections (S-Video, A/V) like this one http://www.monstercable.com/europe/english/productPage.asp?nv=Photo&pin=1740
    To be safe check the specs carefully if it support the convertion signal, check it with the dealer before you buy it.

    Pull out the TV's manual and check it, if your TV support PC connection or not? Even you have the same DVI connection doesn't mean it will works as PC monitor. TV's DVI input usually reserved for Cable Box, Satellite, A/V equipment.

    If your TV does support PC you might have to swith to PC input and set the video card resolution to the resolutions that support by your TV.

    My best advise is check the manual it will explain to how to hook up with the PC.
