    I have this tv/monitor http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/d...&scy=be&slg=en, and I want to hook it up to my PC as a second monitor via DVI/HMDI. I've plugged everything in, but I've lost the remote and I can't find anyway to choose PC as an input without the remote. The manual in the link I posted doesn't say anything either, so I'm wondering if there are any shortcuts or workarounds people know about that I don't?

    Thanks for any help

    Guess you need a new remote which is compatible with your tv.

    Then enter your graphics driver and set up multiple screens.
