1) Would i need to change the screen resolution? i would change from my 20" LCD monitor to a 32-36" LCD tv.
2) When i connect the TV would i need to disconnect the monitor?
3) To connect the 2 i would need a cable that has the male part on both ends right?
4) Is there any video degradition over 17'?
thanks for all of the help
dont use red-green-blue (component) connections as they are analog and lossy. the picture will be very strange looking, not suitable for PC use.
i'd recommend you use HDMI - which is basically DVI with audio (it doesnt need it tho). if the tv doesnt have DVI already on it, and has HDMI then get a $1 converter from radioshack. same deal if the tv only has RGB on it (VGA D-Sub).
now what do u mean? ur monitor + ur tv at the same time? cuz i think it needs to be at the same resolution, so it depends on ur priorities. if u want it looking good on ur tv, then set it to ur tv's native res, which is i'm guessing either 1366x768 or 1280x720, (since its 32-36), if u want it on ur monitor, (if its 17) i'm guessing its 1280x1024 or somethin.
ur not very clear on what ur trying to do here, explain more and i'll be able to help you more
