Default would a philips plasma reciever box drive other plasmas ok please ?

my 3 year old 42" philips plasma has died

would like to use the reciever box (philips FTR 9965) that came with this
with a replacement plasma as this has numerous inputs, picture in picture
etc.

it connects via what looks like a standard monitor cable - is this likely to
work with plasma tv's with a normal pc type input.

thanks for any comments.

The output is VGA, so you may be able to use it with other displays.
However, the infra-red remote control reception down the cable from the
display to the receiver box won't work, and you'll have to point the remote
at the receiver box directly.
