    I've been after a solution to this problem for a while now, and it's beginning to bug me.

    Trying to get TV as PC monitor. Graphics cards is NVIDIA GeForce GT 520 with VGA and DVI slot.

    I have this running from the VGA slot on the PC into the Y Pb Pr slots on the TV.

    I have this running from the audio slot on the PC to the Audio In on the TV.

    By going into the Nvidia properties on PC (win7) I can see there are 2 things visible, the monitor and the TV. However, it's here things come unstuck. I'm unable to work out what to do next.

    What do I need to change on the PC?
    As I haven't (annoyingly) got the remote for the TV, and having looked at the remote picture online, access the Y Pb Pr facility?

    Ta in advance for any asistance.

    ;) Yep. I'm hoping the friends that the TV came from can find it.
