Just got this 15.4" monitor/TV with built in Freeview.

Now watching Glastonbury on BBC2 with Freeview.

Now I don't know if this is being transmitted in HD or not but the quality is stunning.

I just tried the same on my old analogue TV with a Freeview box and the quality doesn't compare.

Roll on digital.

If you are watching using the Freeview tuner then it will not be HD. The size of your screen will with a good tuner give exceptional results.

It seems to me if they use a hd camera it looks better even if it not broadcast in hd.

Does it need to be connected to the roof aerial or will it work with a portable usb aerial with built in booster?

Mine is connected to my wide band roof aerial which is split to connect my standard analogue TV and this PC monitor.

I tried one of those so-called wide band indoor aerials. Absolutely useless.

Midgetninja, A 40" TV is 20" too big for me. I do not like TVs that dominate a room.

My standard analogue TV is 20", soon to be changed for a 19" HD ready TV.

My 21in Belinea CRT monitor displays Freeview programmes superbly (feed is from a TwinHan Freeview PCI TV card linked to an external TV aerial via an aerial booster).

The higher resolution available on the monitor compared to a flat screen TV probably accounts for part of the reason.
