TV or Monitor with specifics

Found 2nd Jun 2008
I'm looking for a secondary TV, Monitor or combo for my bedroom. I already have a 32" HDTV Samsung. However I'm looking for something smaller to go in the back of the room so I can hook up;

Secondary Xbox (XBMC)
and potentially a PC with VGA

I'm having trouble finding something that will work with both PC and Console Inputs that is relatively small. I was thinking 15" minimum, I could possible go smaller if anything exists.

Another preference is Widescreen 16:9 which you don't tend to see in smaller screens (monitors).

Only flexibility is that I'm willing to buy alternative connections for the console units if it helps narrow the search. I'm unsure what my options are here but I was thinking is there was an Xbox/PC/Gamecube VGA connectors for example. I'm also willing to use a multiple connector like multi-scart lead so that all the consoles can be attached at once without having to change them manually.

...and of course, the best price available.

Any help appreciated!

EDIT: Almost forget, budget wise, I'm fairly flexible although my requirements may limit me. Sub £200 as a starting point, sub £100 would be spot-on.

From experience I'd suggest a Samsung SM932MW - 19" Monitor with TV tuner (analogue).

My lad got one and I was so impressed I followed suit for a bedroom set.

Normally about £230 but a refurb is £150 + shipping at Misco ]http//ww…501

Looks really nice.

Question(s), so this has;

1 x Scart
1x VGA
1 x DVI
1 x Composite
1 x Analogue
1 x HDMI , right?

Assuming that right, this is looking really good. I Could use a multi-scart for the 3 consoles and pc is covered with vga or DVI to VGA Cable. I could also use composite for one of the consoles. If this is all correct, I think I'm sorted!

Heat for you good man!
