Some newer ones, yes. Some even have a USB port for firmware flashing. But equipment such as the hugely popular range of Humax TV's/FTA tuner boxes, and others too, all rely on transmitted updates

Connect the HDMI output from the PC to the HDMI input of the TV.
Check your TV and see if you have it hooked up to the primary HDMI input.
Even if you don't, you can switch inputs with your remote to get the correct one.
Well when I try to "detect monitors" in the control panel, it always says "another display not detected".

A thought though: If I connected a VGA cable with one input into the computer and two outputs to computer monitors, would that work? Both the monitor and TV are 1080p devices.

edit: My TV also has one USB port, so I can update the firmware through that.

If that were possible nobody would be buying multi-port graphics cards...

so if I want to do this I've got to figure out how to do it through HDMI, eh? Why can't anything ever just be that easy? lol. Well at any rate it always said "another display not detected" even though there is really only one way to connect a cable: PC to TV... lol. I've tried having the TV on and rebooting the computer to try to get it to start up with TV detection (which it never does even though it is checked).

There have been so many issues with TV's which are supposed to work from computers, but which either fail to do so outright, or fail to display POST data at boot if used as a monitor, or are pernicious about which graphics cards they will play nicely with, that if I were buying one I'd want the salesman to demonstrate it worked!

The thing is VGA works flawlessly. I just don't want to have to move the cable all the time (although I will if I have to.) If I could get a double-ended VGA cable and have that work it would be perfect and I wouldn't need to futz around with this stuff.

What about a KVM switch?
