    Ok guys. I have to ask a question here about the DVI port on this unit. In the manual it says not to use the DVI port with a PC. It says it is not made for that. Now does this mean to not use the DVI port with a computer to use the TV as a monitor? And does it mean that I can use the DVI port if I use it to accept video from a TV tuner card from a PC? Or does it mean that I cannot use the DVI port on the TV at all in any way shape or form with a computer? I think that I can use the DVI port with a PC only if I use it to accept a DVI output from a TV tuner card in a PC.

    Does anybody know? I cannot find this information on Toshiba's site.

    Thanks.

    I think it's a stupid thing to put in the manual, the TV won't know the difference, just make sure you feed it the particular resolutions via DVI it is capable of accepting. Powerstrip will allow you to get exactly what you need.

    Really?

    I wonder why they put that in the manual.

    Thanks.
