You'll be hard-pressed to find any better for the money than the one buteman suggested already.
If you want better connectivity on the PC side though (& is recommended to increase your options), install an inexpensive graphics card with dedicated DVI & HDMI ports, e.g. under £22 for this passively-cooled one click here. More choice at click here. G
They all are all talking about XP Vista etc, First thing you need to know is, will your Graphics card Support Dual Monitors, as It may not just work with a single TV monitor, unless you first set it up using a PC monitor
My Desktop PC when connected just to 32ins HD TV did not show no boot screen nothing until the Welcome screen so you cannot make changes, don't think it would restart, it had to be shut down for monitor to be picked up again
