    Use the same TV as computer screen AND external preview monitor

      Hi,

       

      I've just set up my TV as a computer screen, and was just wondering if I really need to save that old CRT peview monitor. Is it in fact possible to switch mode on the TV to use it as an external monitor, for example when you want to show the client the film in full screen. My guess would be no, but before I give up I'll put the question out here.

       

      I use a DVI-cable to connect with the TV and has connected my DV-camera through firewire with the computer, and also from the video/audio out from the camera to RCA-inputs on the TV. This is how I used to connect the old TV.

       

      Any ideas are most appreciated! Or if you just want to set me straight, that's fine too.

       

      Thanks,

      Helena
