I'm going to disagree with you. I've had numerous people try to use 36" TV's as monitors, and the resolution is no where near a smaller monitor.

Now for what Jerry is trying to do, it may be OK with a green screen. But what I saw was not good enough for "up close" work.

My 2 cents.

Subject: Re: TV for monitor


I haven't specifically used *that* big of a TV, but I have used my
main TV as a computer monitor (including logging in to 5250 sessions),
and in that capacity, it works well.

The resolution will absolutely not be an issue. TVs and dedicated
computer monitors tend to have the same range of available resolutions
(in terms of the number of pixels). So a green-screen on a TV will
simply be a bigger-but-viewed-from-farther-away version of what you
see on a regular computer monitor.
