Yea thats what im going to do is get a lcd tv, but it depends what your going to do with the monitor, im just going to use mine as a video monitor out for color correction video on fcp. If your not using it for that stuff i heard text and smaller things look bad on tvs

Yeah my friend has a pretty nice 32' tv that he uses as his monitor... the quality is actually pretty bad...

ehh...guess I'll keep looking for a monitor with av input, cant find one though. I was also thinking of getting the adapter, GRANDTEC GVC ($65.), quality is lost from the console to monitor, but might take my chances I hope it isnt bad, not sure if i will though...
