Hello!

Im after a fairly cheap TV, that will have an S-Video in connection. Something with at least 21" should be fine. Its purpose it purly to watch movies from the laptop on a bigger screen.
Ive checked ebay, amazon, and Tesco yet still cant find a decent thing.

My Uni tv is an old Tube telly and it has Svideo

They make tube Tvs with S-video nowadays. S-video is much better quality over SCART and I already have the cable so thats the only thing that is a must have.

Donleeone I live near Brighton.

If you only want to watch films from your laptop have you thought about a projector? Should be able to pick a second hand one up for £200.
Try the free ads so you can go and look at it or try the uni.
Plus having to move a huge CRT tv around is hard work.

Also if you have a TV you will need a license, but not if you have a projector.

Whaat?? Even if I dont have TV connected I need to pay for the license??

Get the LG 22LS4R which i bought for £240, perfect for your needs as it has all the hd + tv connectivity youll need.

Yes anything that has a tuner needs one! So TV, freeview box, dvd recorder, PVR, sky box.

Some people use a USB tv stick on there laptop. I'll let you work out the rest!:whistling:

Just think big screen football in your room, everybody brings some beers. Im sure you can drink £200 worth of other peoples beer over the 3 or 4 years.

Yes mine will be out tomorrow night for the football more free beer for me!:w00t:

No. Check http://www.bbctvlicence.com/ for full information on the issue.
It's a factual site not run by the BBC but privately owned that tells you the truth about tv licensing.
Many people (most?) believe that anything with a tuner needs a licence-
the bbctvlicence site has fascinating information (most culled from BBC resources)
and an in-depth dissemination of what they say vs the law.
One of my favourite bits of the site is the TV detector van register-
ie email the site with the reg no and a photo of any detector van you see.
In a year, two out of the 26 operational vans have been spotted- not that scary really!
From a BBC letter obtained under the Freedom of Information Act:

http://www.bbctvlicence.com/FOI%20-%20DVDs.jpg
apols for the size, it comes up this big for some reason!
Anyway, check the site.
It's not about avoiding paying your licence fee if you do watch telly,
but about helping you avoid aggro if you've just got it for dvds , vids, or the PS3.

Yes a good valid point.

But with most things that are in affect a tax it will end up you trying to prove yourself innocent.

If you have a tv and your house has an aerial and dont have a license you dont pay they take you to court....

They will through as much money at it to win as its not their money.

...so make sure you don't have an ariel lead to your TV, disconnect your ariel socket, and don't subscribe to sky (a dead giveaway!)
I'm thinking of getting rid of the TV connection, but then I do like Heroes!

There is something like internet :) U can always download them and watch them BEFORE they even start screening in UK :)

BTW. Ive just read that when U buy a TV they ask for your address and name so they can send all the detail to the tv licensing company or sthing. F****!!

This projector is still tempting... I dont know anything about them so I guess I need to do some research :)
