    Need advice.

    My brother bought a new tv last week and gave me his "old" one (bought 2013).



    As you can see, I now got 2 tv with the exact same size. My ps4 is connected to one of them but I don't have any idea what to use the other one for.

    Watching TV on doesn't make sense since my receiver is connected to "my" TV and I am not really interested in connecting it to the other one, just to watch tv while I play ps4.

    I tried to plug in my PC but the resolution via HDMI was horrible on both, everything was too small to read...

    So now I try to think of something to use this tv for since I ain't got any space to store it as a back up tv.

    Any ideas ??

    You could use it for your PC and adjust the resolution and reading text so you can use your PC properly on your TV.

    If you have a wireless Keyboard and mouse, you could use your coffee table or centre piece of your living room as desk for them.

    You just have to change the text size and fine tune the scaling.
    Not too hard at all.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Sell it for more PS4 games, or save the money for things that haven't come out yet. That's what I'd do.

    I guess you can sell it.

    Ask if a friend needs it maybe.

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”

    I tried that, but it didn't work. It works with my laptop however....

    But I gave it to a friend, who just moved and couldn't get a tv yet.
