    I wanna buy a new TV but it doesn't have a vga or S-Video input. The next best thing that it has is DVI input. Is there any kind of adapter than I can get to use this TV as a monitor for my tx2500z?

    Thanks.

    funny, I use a VGA to DVI adapter for my older pc which has an ATI all-in-wonder 8500 in it.

    as far as I'm concerned those adapters are cheap and you can use your VGA cord with it (just attach the DVI to the tv, connect with you VGA). however whenever I use an adapter I get flicker on the monitor whenever windows user account control comes up.

    also if your new tv has HDMI there are HDMI to VGA adapters out there too, whatever fits your fancy,

    Get a component cable. It attached to the S video port and costs less than $10.

    You might already have one if you have an old video card that came with it.

    Google: s video 9 pin


    I tried 720p with it on my TX2524ca

    Whoa, the s-video port can output component with an adapter? I think I have one but it will take a while to find it. Are you sure it works? The svideo port on my tx2500z isn't the 9 pin kind, its the regular type.

    Update:

    I have a 9 pin adapter but it physically doesn't fit in the port. I have a 7 pin but it only outputs 720x480.

    Thanks anyway.
