Now that`s multitasking. I do that also, only I use my blueray player. I`m assuming you mean movies on your pc ?

Your only gonna get the resolution that that tv will allow.

I used to do that a long time ago. If I'm to take a wild guess I'd point it to around the time Radeon HD 2000 series was out. I suggest skipping the entire idea though. It will be a blurred image even if you get it to work, the tone will be off, frame rates are so-so and you will see screen tear.

*Also that was when I started experimenting with custom builts. It looked so horrible I sat almost 90 degrees angle away from the front of the tele because I thought it would be overstressed and go boom*

But if you're keen on giving it a shot, make sure the components you're using to link your tele and your comp are working well. For an output to be recognized, all that's needed is a connection to it. Functionality may be a different story. I can't really remember but I'm pretty sure you wont be able to do much with the resolution too.
