PC-VGA vs PC-D ??

I have hoticed that on my tv there are 2 options in the av menu for the d-sub conector. 1 is PC-VGA which is the one i always use, and the 2nd one is PC-D. on closer inspection the d-sub connector on the back of the tv lists both.

now my question: what is PC-D?

I have tried to look it up on the internet, but to no avail.

I see what you mean their is no real explination for PC-D sub other than it's just another name for a VGA connection from what I've been able to find so far. As like in this article.

You have two options when connecting up a PC to an LCD TV. The first option is D-Sub, otherwise known as VGA. The second option is DVI_D to HDMI which require an adpater
Or a video card with a DVI port and a DVI to HDMI cable. I should have done more research before assuming the D-sub refered to digital it's just another name for VGA. And a little more foot in mouth on my part. Sorry Fabe

No Once again I got a bit ahead of myself assuming D meant digital. It's just another name for VGA.
My apologies Fabe
