Question:

I have a Dell 2400 abt 5 yrs old. I have a Vizio 37" HDTV. The cable distance is about 45' between the two. Would the pix quality on the TV be equal to the pix off the air or dish? And would the 50' cable degrade the quality?


Answer:

Most Vizio HDTVs have VGA inputs (sometimes called an RGB connection, it has 3 rows of 5 holes on a single connection) which you could use to connect your computer without any converters. You would just need a long VGA cable to connect the two. VGA shouldn't have any trouble running 50'. You could use our SVGA Monitor Cable, 50 Ft, part SW-2403-50. If your TV does not have a VGA, you could use this converter box and a long component video cable. Component also shouldn't have any problems going 50 feet.

Question:

Can I use this to watch high def on my tv in the livingroom and keep my pc in the office? If so, do I need anything else. The living room and office do share a interior wall.


Answer:

Yes, this item will work to show your PC display on your HDTV. It supports 720p and 1080i signals. In addition to this unit you would need to purchase the component video cable to go from the box to your TV and also an audio cable to carry the sound from your computer to your TV. You could use our 3.5mm Mini Stereo to RCA cable, SW-8536.

Question:

What are the major differences between this product and the Audio Authority VGA to Component, PC to HDTV Signal converter? Thanks!


Answer:

This product is more forgiving of incoming resolutions. The audio authority only outputs exactly the resolution put into it, making it more difficult to use.

Question:

Does this allow me to do all my stuff on my tv that i could do on my computer, like going on the internet or etc? Also do i have to have a remote or can i even control it from my tv?


Answer:

With this adapter and an HDTV most applications work well. Normal text size can usually be viewed clearly and is sufficient for web browsing, email etc. Any controls will have to be from the comptuer. You can get a remote to control the computer, or a wireless mouse/keybaord.
