    Hey
    This isn't Mac related but I couldn't find a section to post it...

    Basically I have a Samsung P42H-2 monitor and would like to get TV on it. Whether this be through Sky or just 1-5 analogue channels I don't really mind- Sky would be preferred though.

    The inputs on the back of the monitor are
    VGA / DVI / CVBS / HDMI

    There is no socket for the satellite cable to connect to however (Composite?)

    Are there any adaptors available for example that would go from composite to VGA?

    I would like the best quality picture possible so maybe HDMI would be the way to go?

    Thanks a lot.

    Connect your sat/cable box to your display via HDMI, done.

    So the satellite cable will go into a Freeview box?

    I'm not sure, right now what's connected to your TV?

    Just my Xbox 360 through the HDMI plug. I haven't got any television on the TV right now.
