I posted this question on the "Plasma & LCD Flat Panel Displays" forum but no one responded. Maybe someone here can help?


I'm thinking of purchasing an inexpensive LCD computer monitor for use with the "monitor out" jacks on my Rotel RSX-1065 surround sound receiver (which uses either component video or s-video jacks for that function). Since lcd computer monitors do not, I believe, accept either of those types of inputs, is this 'do-able'??


Thanks.

Would be doable with a S-Vid to VGA box like the X-Box market uses...


My Compaq TFT comes with a S-Vid input as well but its not normal...

Or you could get an LCD/TV like the Mitsubishi LT-2220 or one of the Sharp Aquos LCDs.

I wanted to do exactly the same thing about a year ago.


The advantage of the LCD monitors is that they are very cheap compared to LCD TV's. It would seem to be a completely different pricing strategy. I was also troubled by the lack of video inputs on the monitors and couldn't find a monitor small enough, as I wanted it to sit on a coffee table right next to me.


I ended up buying an inexpensive 5" LCD TV from an unknown brand. The video quality absolutely sucks ... but for using the OSD from my processor it is perfect.


Good luck.

Your best bet for your application is the cheapest lcd tv (5"-7") that you can get your hands on. You should be able to get something on ebay for less then $100.
