Hi, I've never owned an LCD Monitor. Heck....all I have are crappy CRT's. I'm going to law school in NYC next year and will be bringing my new 15" PB. I don't have a TV, yet. I was thinking of maybe getting a eyetv for my pb...but then I starting thinking about getting an external LCD (the prices seem to be going down!). If the LCD monitor has an s-video or the red/white plugs...can I hook up one of those digital cable boxes to it and get TV?! Obviously the monitor doesn't have a coax, but I'm not familiar enough with how this stuff works. I'd be ecstatic if one of those 20" widescreen dells could be an external for my PB AND a TV. Please let me know what I need for it to be done!!! Thanks.
