You will need a graphics card with TV Out facility.

you'll find that a tv is great for games, etc but absolutely unuasable for surfing, word etc. you'll give yourself a headache trying to read the blurred text.

monitors are designed to be used with the person sitting very close and so have a high resolution, a tv works on the exact opposite principle.

if you have an nvidia graphics with tv out click here. this overcomes the blurred pics and any display probs
