HDTV and PC combo, how to set them up...

Read in an article that an HDTV unit could also double up as a PC monitor
The case i read mentioned that through a HMDI cable from the HDMI from the HDMI port of the graphics card to the HDMI input on the HDTV.

I do have a 32 inch HDTV Panasonic GAOO of the CRT Box variety.
Should this one not have an HDMI port is there any way to tweak it to use it as a PC monitor?

I'd appreciate knowledgeable contributions.

Thank you kindly

  1. If you don't have a VGA, DVI, S video, or HDMI on your TV then I seriously doubt it. They do make adaptors but I don't know if they will apply to a crt TV. I would suggest asking the local electronics store.

    Unless someone on here has done it. Anyway good luck to you.

    Thats weird since it should have a HDMI port. However, it should also have a VGA port which most graphics cards do have. If the graphics card hasnt got one then just use an adapter
