Re: TV for a Proliant 320e

I don't think you will have much success. For the DL320G8:

Integrated Matrox G200 video standard
 1280 x 1024 (32 bpp)
 1920 x 1200 (16 bpp)

1280x1024 is 4:3 aspect ratio, and while 1920x1200 is 16:10 a TV will be 1920x1080 which is 16:9. The bigger issue more likely is that TVs no longer come with VGA inputs (Samsung stopped supporting VGA in TVs in 2012). If you can find a TV with a VGA input, it must support one of the 2 resolutions above. Another option would be to purchase a VGA to HDMI adapter as most TVs come standard with HDMI inputs. Make sure that the adapter and TV are compatible though. If the adapter outputs at 1080, then the TV must support 1080 (it will not work on a cheaper TV that only supports 720).

Here are the specs on the display panel:

You will see that the VESA graphics modes supported include 1280x1024, so if the ProLiant is set to 1920x1200 you first need to change the resolution to 1280x1024 before connecting the LCD panel. Then it should work. You should at least be able to see the post message from the ProLiant when it boots since the lower VESA resolutions are supported by the panel as well. Still no guarantee that it will work, but if you get no image through the VGA port there is alwats the VGA to HDMI adapter option.  If you have a standard PC monitor, hook that up to the ProLiant and boot into the OS and change the resolution to 1280x1024. If that works, then you can try connecting the 42" panel. I wouldn't expect the panel to work with the ProLiant at 1920x1200, but with a VGA to HDMI adapter it may work. The question is whether the adapter would convert the image from 1920x1200 to 1920x1080 or whether it would simply crop the image down to 1920x1080. This is not standard usage for a ProLiant so I am afraid you will only know through trial and error.
