I was planning to use a monitor for TV viewing as I think a monitor will be cheaper than a TV.

Like we can get a Full HD AOC moitor for 12k..

And then use it with Tata Sky HD. This particular model comes with in-built speakers as well (dont know about the quality)

My TV viewing distance would be 8-10 feet. Will 24 inch screen be ok for this ??

I am confused why to go for a TV when the channel tuning part is to be done by the set top box and the TV is going to get input through HDMI only. So why not go for a HD monitor instead ?? Also the in-built speakers may not be good enough and one need a good set of speakers for Dolby Digital sound.

Please throw some light on this topic and suggest which monitor will be good for this purpose.

i don’t think it’s a great idea. i’ve used my tata sky (normal and not HD) with my Acer monitor but this one doesn’t have speakers so had to use my sound system for voice. and view was not that great either. it may be because i use a 19 inch monitor. but tv viewing is great with tv only. i mean i enjoy surfing by connecting to tv my desktop but never liked using of monitor with tata sky. i still use this during power failure as desktop runs on ups and small usb speakers gives audio and connect tata sky replacing modem’s plug. watch only an hour or half and then eyes starts itching. also HD channels are way less and cost more.

At last found someone using monitor for tv viewing smile

As TS Normal STB does not have VGA output, I guess you must be using a TV tuner card to convert Composite output of STB to VGA for your monitor..

Dont you think there will be an improvement (for normal channels) if HDMI is used ??

yes i have frontech tv tuner and that may be the case viewing is not that great. and agree hdmi should improve quality. in my case picture is sluggish and and irritate after half an hour.. the resolution is also less (dont know how much but everything look so big on monitor). so if you watch connecting via hdmi using tata sky hd your resolution will also be more. moreover you may watch using hdmi port only if your monitor supports without using any tv tuner.

i realise i am not person whom you are looking for correct answer as my viweing is from normal tata sky via tv tuner and your would be hd to hd. biggrin

I was also thinking the same, I am planning to purchase 23" 3d monitor so can use it for 3d gaming, 3d movies and as a tv also. We have two good options LG and AOC, new dell 3d monitor is expensive so I have finalized LG. Both LG and AOC are around 15k. If you planning to take simple 24" monitor, think on this once.

I do agree that it isn’t a bad idea to spend 2-3k more for a 3D screen..
But in my case, I have a 4 yr old laptop and I am not into gaming. And for viewing TV, I don’t think 3D content is still available. Do you think a 3D monitor will be convert 2D from Tata Sky HD to 3D ??
Also please provide the link of 3D monitors that you hav shortlisted..

If u dont have HDMI port in your lappy then its worthless, coz you can connect this to your lappy through HDMI port n can enjoy 3d movies at least if u don have good graphic card to play games

For HD I am going for http://www.ebay.in/itm/270997…86 coz this will be independent of PC and my laptop does not have HDMI (not in a mood to get a new laptop toungueout)

Does 3D movies available at http://thepiratebay.se/brow…09 require some extra hardware ?? Can I can play these movies on the 3D monitor through the Asus player ?? If yes I wil going for 3D even even it is 1 inch less in size toungueout

And once again thanks for informing about 3D monitors. I never thought they would be within 15k range.

An as far as AOC is concerned I had read in Chip that AOC produces best quality LED screens. So may be you should go through your choices once again as AOC is cheaper.

My opinion (If you have not purchased yet)

Monitor if you want to use that for computing as well.

TV – If you want to just watch tv.

Main disadvantage of Monitor is that viewing angle. You cant see from sides sitting on floor etc.. Monitor is for watching closely…

If you want to make the best use, then there is TV Monitors from LG and Samsung too..

I prefer tv if you do not need a monitor. I will use monitor if my lappy screen/desktop monitor is not working.

I was using my viewsonic monitor as a tv for 2 years (bachelor life) and screen for my lappy . Did not think of tv as it was out of my budget that time.

All the best for your purchase.
