Customer Question
I have my big...

I have my big screen tv hooked to my computer and I would like to watch digital movies while I play games on my computer. Is this at all possible?

Technician's Assistant: What's the model number of your TV? How old is it?

It is a Hitachi 55" 51f59 and it is about 10 to 12 years old.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Everything works fine as far as the sources and inputs. There is nothing wrong with the tv as far as I know

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

I have just never tried this before. I just want to know if it is possible or should I give up

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Expert to know before I connect you?

Can't think of anything.
