HDTV as a monitor and PC combo... How to set them up?
Read in an article that an HDTV unit could also double up as a PC monitor
The case i read mentioned that it could be done through a HMDI cable from the HDMI from the HDMI port of the graphics card to the HDMI output on the HDTV.
I do have a 32 inch HDTV Panasonic GAOO of the CRT Box variety.
Should this one not have an HDMI port is there any way to tweak it to use it as a PC monitor?
I'd appreciate knowledgeable contributions.
Thank you kindly

It's going to look like shit, put the money towards a new display.
Coincidentally, back around 2000 I had a 36" Proscan CRT display that had a VGA input. It was basically a huge 800*600 computer monitor with a TV tuner built in- good times! I used to enjoy watching peoples jaws drop when I fired up Diablo 2, remember this is when the only quality semi hidef displays were 3 tube front CRT projectors.
I think it's still in use, bequeathed it to a former g/f in 06.
I use 2 TVs as displays, one through a DVI to HDMI cable (GTX460), the other on a pure HDMI cable, form a core i5 Ivy Bridge. No issues.
