I have a few questions on the topic in the title.
I just got a 5m HDMI cable to connect my PC to my 32" LG TV for watching films from my pc on my tv etc etc.
1) Is it ok to leave the HD cable plugged into the TV (from the GPU) all the time, and simply change the displays when i want to show my desktop on the TV?
2) If i do the above, does it matter if the TV is left on or off? As in, say i have the HD cable plugged in but am currently playing the PS3 on the tv, will the pc being plugged into the TV have any affect on either PC or TV/PS3? Also when the tv is off will having the PC plugged into it have any affect on the running of the pc?
3) My setup is i5 3550, gtx570, 8gb ram. Obviously im using two monitors if i hook up the tv, will my system be able to cope with this? In terms of: a) just outputting via the TV (films). b) putting film on TV whilst browsing on pc monitor. c) gaming on PC monitor and having internet open on tv?
Sorry for the slightly confusing way of putting the question, but i hope you can understand what im getting at?
