Well then I definitely can't fault you for calling it small and having the wrong impression of PC monitors. We also have a 15 inch here at home for the family PC and it's tiny, every single time after I am forced to use it my standard (as opposed to widescreen) 19 inch looks much bigger than it is, it looks and feels huge.

Here’s somebody with what appears to be a general knowledge of this...

Gerald writes, "LCD HDTV, and monitor: What inputs would I need make sure the unit would have to run the input from the cable box digital tuner, and an input from the cable internet? Or maybe the correct question or setup would be to put a computer near the monitor and have a Internet connection into the computer, with a connection into the monitor? Costco has some great prices on the Sceptre brand with a 32, 37, and in March a 42 inch available. This way I could have a great system in the family room."

HDTV as PC Monitor:D:D:D:D

Yeah it's old, but apparently this idea has been thought of before......

It's the clarity I'm going for..... The resolution mate....

The 42" is the same hight as my Trinitron.....I just want 1366X768 instead of 640X480.....or even 1920X1080..if I get lucky...

Bull****. You can get better clarity and resolution with a smaller computer monitor. You just want a big tv to wave your epeen around. The TV is going to look substantially worse, btw. 1366x768 is horribly low res by computer standards. Widescreen laptops often have a higher resolution for crying out loud.

Although your not gonna believe me you get a lot more quality/clarity/resolution from a 24" LCD monitor then from a HDTV. Though i dont know why i wasted my breath(oh excuse me my fingers would me more appropriated since i wrote not talked).

Edit: Strange when i entered in this thread 2 mins ago, spyhop post wasnt there oO, oh well must have been some error.

Wait, the TV resolution he wants is 1366x768?.....

ROFL

I tried the same thing on my 32" HD TV.

The TV will either cut off part of your image or create black bars. There's really no point in using a TV as a monitor. The clarity, colour and resolutions on a standard 22" monitor far exceeds a TV with that resolution....trust me.

1366X768 is nothing to laugh at...

Take a look at this from mastaG with a 42" sony....

That's good enough for me...

Look....I've seen it in person at CBIT (which you should be familiar with) and BestBuy....
And it looked good...even from 10 feet away....

Besides I don't mind a smaller desktop and bigger icons...it sure blows the Trinitron all to hell.....


Relax.... it's what I need for the job.....

Ok then, whatever floats your boat.

There's a reason why this idea of using a TV as your main computer monitor hasn't taken off.

If you want to read text from 10feet and strain your eyes...be my guest.
