My wife wants to get a 2nd Sky decoder for a few months. I want a new LCD monitor for my PC.
Rather than get a 2nd small LCD TV to hook up to the decoder, I am looking at getting a monitor with a DVI input and using at HDMI>DVI adaptor like this one:
Once my wife has finished with Sky, I can then use the monitor on my PC to replace the ancient CRT. A good quality monitor and a small cheap TV are about the same price.
I already have Sky HDi but it doesn’t appear to have HDMI output. It has component and RF.
I don’t know if the latest 2nd decoders (HDi not required by me) have HDMI. I also don’t know if the picture image suffers significantly with the HDMI>DVI adaptors.
Has anyone else used a monitor rather than a TV?
