I have a samsung 50" plasma tv with both rca and hdmi/dvi connections available, I am trying to connect a pc that has dvi connection available.
With my old 37" lcd tv I connected via vga cable with a dvi converter on the pc end with no problem. I have tried a similar setup on the new tv but with a rca converter on the tv end, result no signal!
Not sure what I am doing at all, so I really need some help. Has anyone got plasma to pc sussed?
Reading various posts in various forums I am even more confused, what I want to be able to do is view sky player on my tv, please please some one out there must have some answers.

If you have Dvi connection on both ends (Pc and tv) you don't need a converter. You computer might need an update driver. another word Pc should reconize the tv when it's connected (as another monitor).
if nothing work then get a vga to dvi cable and connect it to the old cable you used with the converter
ps make sure the pins are same on the TV and computer/converter as the cable.

Shutdown your computer and look at the rear of the case to determine the type of video connections that your machine has. Nearly all computers will have the standard 15-pin VGA output port. In addition, you may also find that your computer has an S-video port, an RCA composite video port, a set of three component RCA video outputs or perhaps even an HDMI output port.

Determine the types of video inputs that are available on your plasma TV. There should be a standard RCA composite input, a three-jack RCA component input and an S-video input. In addition, you may also find a 15-pin VGA input, a DVI input or an HDMI input.

your Plasma TV may seem liek a daunting task, but it's much simpler when you know which types of connection are available, and which ones you need—both now and in the future.

Thanks for...
