Ok i have an Emerson 42' TV
http://www.blogcatalog.com/blog/tv-p...2baa8d9a18ad3d

and i would like to use it as a computer monitor. Generally hooking up a tv as a computer monitor is no problem these days because they usually have a VGA port on them. Sad to say it, mine does not.

So i purchased 2 cables to try and work this out.

cable 1)
VGA -> Composite/S.Video

I used a composite cable to connect this to the ports on the tv. Iv yet to try the S.Video

cable 2)
VGA -> HDMI Male

anyways, I have tried both cords and havnt had any luck. I have been trying to select the source on my TV however it replies that their is no connection.

I assumed the VGA to HDMI wouldnt work anyways without a converter box to convert analog to digital but i bought it on ebay for 4 bucks so whatever.

any ideas anyone?
