Thank you guys for your answers. Yeah, I'm pretty noob when it comes to this, so I did have the cord connecting from the TV to the monitor lol (besides the monitor already being set up w/ the computer of course) SO from what I've gathered, I'll need a different cord.. I think dvi is what I have for the computer, so DVI to HDMI? Does that sound right? And can I just get that at any electronics store or am I better off looking online?
This originally started because I wanted to watch live streams on my TV (better picture and larger screen) but still be able to surf the web/do whatever on my monitor.
