Have a Philips 42FD9932/17G Monitor that used to be connected to dish
satellite. I want to connect to cable TV. Does anyone know how? Seems
there is no cable connector on this thing. Can't find a manual either.
Thanks
Ginny

You need a separate tuner. This is actually quite common for large screen
TV -- no tuner. At 852 x 480 pixels, you have a nice TV but it's not true
HD.

Many options exist. Much will depend on what inputs are provided. A trip to
the Philips website failed to bring up an exact match with your model
number. However, http://www.reliableaudiovideo.com/phil42newmod.html is a
seller which appears to list all the specs for your TV. Might help you.

A PC can be used as a cable and OTA tuner with a TV tuner card. Plus, most
of them give you the ability to use the PC's hard drive as a DVR. You have
to decide what you want to do with your system and whether you want to
dedicate practically an entire PC to use as a TV tuner. You'd use the VGA
connection for that. This is the most expensive, complicated arrangement,
but will give you the most capability and probably the best pictures.

Next step down: Some cable TV boxes have S-video out and your monitor
appears to have S-video in. On the Philips site, at least one /17 has
component inputs, but you need to check whether yours does. ( ... and I
think it doesn't so you'll probably go for s-video to get the best
pictures.)If you don't know what to look for, write back here.

The dead-flat simplest solution is to hook the A/V outputs from a VCR to the
A/V inputs on your Philips and use the VCR as a tuner. Not elegant, but --
what the heck -- you're watching TV in five minutes for five bucks, maybe
less.
