I am very close to stepping off into a pioneering "purchase"area (for all intents&purposes) nobody(in my world) has done it too much as far as I know or can get folks to say, but I am very curious to know just how badly the resulting effect actually is in the doing, I mean, now that I have a Matrox card, my "pc" is now tv compatible but , & Iwant to find out how useful it is (since walmart has 20-inch"AV"supported flat-screen-CRT-TV for97$"Symphonic")(as a monitor with a DAW) And I have managed to acquire myself a MatroxG450eTV video card, so I can run dual monitors, or a tv and a monitor, I think the tv must be "AV" compatible, for it to work, but not many folks can say much about tv quality in the role of "monitor", or often times, this has been my experiences,of course where you ask can have a profound effect on the developed image of that which you are asking about. CAN SOMEONE SPEAK OR ADVISE ME ON THE MATTER OF HOW WELL AN "AV"-TV SUBSTITUTES FOR A REGULAR MONITOR, IN AUDIO-WORK? I am close to trying the venture out for personal taste.. I desperately need to increase my monitor-screen real-estate, while at the same time following some budget, and now that I can support a tv with my pc, as long as it is "AV"equipped" I would gratefully applaud anybody with some first-hand experience shared.. in any form or fashion, or even quantity, on this issue, the use of a "television" as a monitor in audio work.. is it cool? is it nerve-rackin? THANKS Jbon ps I know if a way was known by anyone, to hook up an older tv I'd really dig having that info.
