NO. But you do have to tell your TV which input is being used. Example, if your TV has 3 HDMI inputs and you plug into HDMI port number 2, then thru the TV menu you would select HDMI #2

The best way to connect is thru HDMI, then DVI, depending on what connector your graphics card has. If you connect thru VGA your resolution on the TV may be limited.

I have now just got my original monitor connected, i have my 32 inch LG 1080p HDTV connected to my HDMI slot on my GEFORCE PALIT GTX 460 1GB and the LG is on the right channel and it is still not showing my pc, my pc has detected the LG though.

The instruction manual for my TV states that (in the US) you should set the PC refresh rate to 60Hz before connecting to the TV.

Also have you checked the troubleshooting section of your manual?
