    I believe it was suggested I get a HDMI switch box, which I did. At Amazon.com, I got a HDMI switch box, that can receive 5 standard HDMI cables, and send the signal over 1 HDMI cable to, in this case the LG HDTV. The box is amazingly small, about 1/2 the size of a pack of cigarettes. It has a manual button for selecting HDMI input source #'s 1 through 5, AND it even included the smallest remote I've ever seen, to also select HDMI source #'s 1 through 5. REMEMBER to turn the power off of the device no longer being used !! The cost, including delivery was a total of $12.07 $Cdn.

    For a long time I have been upset that entertainment device sesigners have HDMI "OUT" ports, but NEVER" HDMI "IN" ports, to string a number of devices together to get all the video to my TV, and the sound to my home theater. NOW I am a happy man !!

You will not be able to split them, but they do make a HDMI Switcher, allowing you to use your Xbox 360 as number one and your PC as number 2, w you cannot mix both at the same time.

hi,
Your TV didn't have any HDMI port. Do you mean the DVI port. do you use DVI cable or DVI to HDMI cable.
The only way to check whether the DVI port is working or not is by replacing the cable. purchase a new cable and try again.
ok

How could i connect this tv to laptop


Connect by this way:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You'll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC's are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won't find a VGA port on regular TV's though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with "digital" being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.

All you need is an hdmi-dvi adapter. You will also need a component audio lead to plug into the mini(3.5) jack socket on the tv as dvi does not carry sound. You will need to initially use the scart to set up your tv for hdmi as the menu can only be seen via the scart until you set it up.
