    Yep, absolutely superb, far better than expected. Mine's called a super tv, lcd tv box. It was cheaper than the others and a better spec. It's white with a little bit of yellow at each side.

    The one I have has sound inputs and outputs (stereo, not 5.1). You can split the sound off to a set of speakers quite easily, you may need an adaptor or two but they cost pennies.

    Ebay item number, about £32. You may find better/cheaper but that's the one I've got (and my mum too) and I find it's perfect.

    Search for "vga tv box" and loads come up.

    More expensive, lower resolution, no built in speaker, no remote control.

    What outputs does your cable box have?
