Connecting the PC HDTV Video Card to your Digital TV
Following are the connection options according
to your display device inputs:
Configuration #1 - HDTV with RGB
inputs or PC monitor. Connect the loop-back cable to your HDTV card, and
connect your monitor cable to your monitor or HDTV. Some HDTV sets with RGB inputs
often require VGA to RGBHV (5BNC or 5RCA) cable.
Configuration #2 - HDTV with DTV
Component (Y-Pb-Pr) input. Configuration #2 displays seperate connections
to a computer monitor and HDTV card. In this configuration, the output of the HDTV
will be set to Y-Pb-Pr output accessed through the setup menu. VGA to Component
breakout cable is required. The PC desktop will be displayed on the monitor,
and the HDTV broadcast can be viewed on you HD-Ready TV. Please note, when in full
screen HDTV mode, you desktop will not be functional.
Configuration #3 - HDTV with DTV
Component (Y-Pb-Pr) input. This configuration displays both PC desktop and
HDTV HD via the Y-Pb-Pr input with the use of a VGA to Component transcoder. In this
configuration, the look-back cable is used with the PC resolution set to 640x480 or
960x540 @ 60Hz. Note that the use of a transcoder will result in overscan of
the PC desktop screen on your HDTV. To correct this problem, you must set custom
timings with third party software such as PowerStrip. For more information on how to
connect your PC to your TV, see Wayne Harrelson's Guide to
