Oh and I do not have a remote to this tv. I have bought an adapter that plugs into the antenna slot for my ps3 and or other video players. I also want to be able to hear sound/

I don't get what you mean. Why not just use the PS3?

Yeah you can just do netflix on your PS3, I would suggest that.
But if you are dead set on your PC being on there, run an HDMI cable from your PC to your tv (if your PC has the appropriate port for it) and voila

Cheers
