having read closely a previous thread on this subject..there is a lot of mention about a VGA connection...i have on my pc what i belive is the vga connection into monitor (ie a blue 15 pin socket)..there is also what looks the same on the tv ( ie blue 15 pin socket ) but try as i may i cannot get the pc one to fit into the tv one ( granted it is in a very difficuly place to get to and it may just take perseverence) but now having read the tv manual for connecting the pc to tv it states as follows " USE A D-SUB cable to connect the tv's PC input to the computers RGB output terminal " now, is a D-SUB cable totally different to a VGA cable?..there is no mention of D-SUB in diagram of tv settings .just a VGA, am i just having bad luck in trying to connect VGA cable from pc to VGA in tv...or am i in fact using wrong cable ? ( tv is a hitachi 32" lcd ( wall mounted...thats why it is so damn hard to connect cable ! :)...any help/advice be greatly appreciated

yep...thats my tv....and thats the connections...but where it says ..PC says on that description.. " Mini D-sub 15-pin x 1 (rear), (S)XGA " ... where as in my manual it just says use a D-SUB cable..nothing at all about mini D-SUB...could that be why my VGA cable does not fit tv?
