Well, my family recently started talking about getting a new tv, and they have discovered this idea of using a PC monitor and some kind of tuner (?) from some written article, reasons apparantly being it's cheaper than buying an expensive HDTV. Now i'm pretty sure i've heard some murmouring here and there about these kinds of setups, but i thought it best to ask my favourite forum for some wise words of advice, before my family makes any rash or uneducated decisions. I'd like to know; 1. What equipment is needed and how does the setup work? 2. Are the cost advantages etc as much as they appear? 3. Will we get a good High Def (?) image? 4. Can consoles connect up fine (need adapters? or an all in 1 tuner box?) 4. Any Personal experiences people have had with this kind of rig? If all seems positive then some bonus questions 5. Recommended brands/ deals 6. What to look for in equipment specifications extra info: father reckons a 30inch screen is appropriate. family has a history of always heading to dell first () why? i don't know edit: also budget is limited, we can only afford so much (however, we will definitely put in enough so we can achieve reasonable quality) Or any semi-relevant advice or comments would be appreciated. I'm not demanding full responses to all my questions from everyone Cheers, OSW ps: going to sleep now. will see if there are any replies tommorow morning.
