I was considering getting the dell 2405 for home cinema use. I have a sony dvd/surround sound player with component output. 1. Does any use the dell for watching movies? It is as good as anything out there on the TV market? 2. It is HD ready? - I have read differing thoughts on this and admit I dont entirely understand the techincal stuff. I would imagine plugging any reveicer into the dvd player (there are a number of inputs). 3. How would a current digital tv signal look (it would be connected through the dvd player)? 4. Using the vga adaptor I would attach my mac to the screen for vision and the dvd player for sound to be able to view movie trailers and slideshow etc. This would be assuming the dell could switch down ok to my iMacs resolution, otherwise make use of the screen spanning hack. Any advice on the above? Thanks.
