Windows 7: Windows 7 is so complicated, should I change it?

DF, you miss-quoted, but I agree. I think what mjoakin is trying to do is make sure that whatever he gets is going to work without problems because it is made specifically for it. If The product says "for TV" and he uses it for a TV and it doesn't work, then he can't say "It says it's for a TV on the box!!!"

Yeap, one guy from a site told me that ... "errrr ... sir?, it does not says TV on the manual" ... but anyway, other technician (from another site) told me if my TV had the inputs, he did not see any problem.

BTW, my old TV is a regular TV, not LCD or Plasma.

Thank y'all. I will let you know the results!

Exactly. I understood that completely and understand your concern. The same with looking for the Win 7 compatible stickers/info. If its on there then it should work and if it doesn't then it doesn't "work as advertised".

I have to ask then....why would you want to output the video to a much lower quality/resolution device than the higher quality, higher resolution LCD that is built in to the computer? Have you ever seen PC video outputted to a regular TV before?

My PC's monitor is 18.5 inches, my good-old TV is 37 in, I used to have a Dell Dimension 8200 with a Nvidia Video Card connected to my TV, so I watched movies and TV programs in a bigger screen from by bed ... the resolution was very good. I hope my ATI card would give me the same quality.

Wow, I butchered that quote in my previous post. Anyway, if you are happy with seeing a computer output on a regular tube TV screen, all power to you, I hope you can find an adapter that works for you (seems like you've been given a link that does). When I think back about a computer hooked up to my 50" projection screen, I have to choke back vomit.

A projection screen is different, you know, the output in my TV (LG Flatron RP-29FA35A, it's a flat screen with the big box, I don't know how they call it), and believe me, the quality of the picture was the same as the PC's monitor.

I know they are different, but the resolution can't touch an LCD. Not even close. My TV was a 50" DLP and still looked like crap compared to my current 42" Vizio LCD.

Check your optional Windows Updates for newer device drivers.

Any drivers missing in your Device Manager can be found on the support Downloads webpage for 1) your computer model or 2) device model.

If the driver alone is not enough to operate the device optimally, then go to the manufacturer's website Support Downloads webpage to download the full 1) Win7 or 2) Vista software package for that device.

Example: Many all-in-one printers need the software to open their Scan utility on the desktop when you press Scan button - otherwise you have to use the built-in Win7 Scanning utility by rightclicking on the Printer in Devices&Printers.

Vizio? I was going to buy a Vizio LCD but I was not sure of its quality, I mean, it's a new brand in Mexico, never heard of it, is it good?
