FWIW, my HDTV (Toshiba 50hm66) specifically states in the manual that
PC hookup is not supported. However, I have been running my linux PC
to the TV since I got it back in Jan with no issues. I'm using DVI -
HDMI adapter. I think the manual says PC is not supported just so they
can avoid dealing with customers that have problems with it. As long
as you keep the resolution/refresh at or below it's native (720p 60 on
mine), there should be no problems. Running oustide of spec may not
work, but I doubt you would do any harm on a modern display.
YMMV, blah, blah...
