does anyone know if it is easy or at all possible to attach a freeview box to a pc monitor as i am looking to buy one and knowing this info would really help, also this may sound daft but can you get a remote for a pc monitor?

oh soz, sounds a bit overkill tho mate as you would need speakers and an amp as well.
#4

You could use something like this;

But for the price it's not worth it

Aye and dont forget you gonna need the monitor to have speakers and they are generally cack on a monitor whereas the speakers on my plasma are absolutely incredible sounding.

seems a bit heavy duty, i will indeed purchase a tv, so does anyone know where i can get a tv which i can use as a c monitor and has freeview built in that is around 22" and is very cheap

If you already have a PC monitor this is the cheapest option;

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gadmei-TV-Video-Games-Monitor/dp/B000FKP8YS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1215381847&sr=1-1

You basically connect up whatever you want to watch on the monitor into that box (so your freeview box) then connect that box to your monitor. Reading up on it you can use it in windows aswell so you can be on your PC whilst having your freeview box on the montor aswell

only 27.99

Got one myself from PC world for the equivalent of £215 - bought a samsung 940MG ( as did my dad ) and between us 5 of them failed! So got that as a replacement, lovely bit of kit but they are right when they say the speakers are treble-focused - found it a problem playing guitar hero.

Got a scart to audio adaptor lying about so will try that when i'm back in newcastle but i don't think it's going to work :(

Just over £30 with p&p (marketplace). I got mine from ebay for about £25 delivered, brilliant device. Makes old pc monitors useful again.

Is a monitor cheaper than a tv? Maybe they are for small sizes, I'd want nothing smaller than 32" now though.
