Cabinet monitor question

Recommended Posts

So instead of using a 24" monitor I want to use a 32" TV and here's my question. When you turn on the power to the computer it powers up the monitor also, so on a TV will it power it on also? Or will I have to power it on separate?

There all different. Some tvs do some don't. Some monitors do some don't.

Not something I see in the specs either so you need to test first. Worse case you'll have to have access to the power button or reroute it to a new switch on your cab...

Still have not bought one for my cabinet but a lot of people recommend buying a smart power strip.

Yes. To build a cab the best way to set it up is to use a Smart Strip.

However for it to power on-off your screen, the screen needs to remember it's on/off state when it's power cycled.

That way you turn it on once and never need to physically turn it off or on again as it will automatically come on when the Smart Strip gives it power.

If you accidentally by a screen that doesn't do that take it back asap for one that does.

Go with an Insignia! They are cheap and remember power on state and last mode used (PC, TV, etc) but be careful a 32" needs to be watched a little further back!

i use a TV, unfortunately i have not been able to power on with PC. I just use the remote to power on, easy peasy.

 

Live long and prosper.
