what kind of cable would i need to make this happen?
a DVI or DVI-HDMI cable
depending if your TV accepts DVI or HDMI or both
or VGA cable (for lesser greatness)
DVI works great.
Depends on your computer and TV.
Firefold sold me a 15' DVI to HDMI cable for $6
can't beat that, works great
It doesn't look as great as a real monitor, but does well enough for watching movies.
potroast does this. he uses a 42" Vizio LCD i believe and i think he sometimes visits this forum, though he's usually in the "computers and programming" forum next door. he could probably answer your questions.
I have a 26" sammy lcd.
dvi cable works fine imo
i wouldn't use it as the only monitor, but for a larger secondary monitor it works really well.
