I have been trying to research this on line but there doesn't seem to be much info on the subject. Surely it is a good idea to have a tv set that will also be used as a monitor for a pc? Or am I missing something?

Are any mumsnetters knowledgable inthis field? What screen resolution, for instance, do I need and what else should I watch out for? This is just a part time tv in our dining room, which is where I also have the PC.

I've got a media centre PC -from tescos. I have digi sender that sends my sky box signal to it and I can change channels in my bedroom - can also recoerd programms which is handy.

Was about £400. plus cost of digi sender.
