Connecting DVD player directly to TFT monitor

  grebe 17:13 29 Dec 2006

Does anyone know if it is possible to connect a DVD player with suitable cables (e.g. component/VGA lead; HDMI to DVI lead) directly to a TFT monitor? I am particularly interested in using the Samsung 215 TW exclusively for watching DVDs but various potential suppliers and even Samsung support seem rather unsure as to whether this can be done or whether the monitor can only be connected to a PC.

Any advice on this or on alternative monitors which might do the trick would be much appreciated

It would appear you have to use something on the lines in this link (scroll down a little first):

Hi Stuart

Thank you for your prompt and ingenious suggestion of using an external TV tuner to solve this problem. Unfortunately, however, this will not work for me as I neither have nor want a TV, including an external tuner.

Many thanks, nonetheless.
