Situation: Eighty-four year old mother-in-law has come to stay. Small room, big tv addiction, and hard of hearing. $500, 20" LCDTV with hometheater surroundaudio (surrounding her head ;-) - another $200) seems to be the answer. BUT, this is an opportunity to get her involved withcomputers and the internetASLONG AStheTV attributes aren't less appealing and can be comfortablyaccessed with standard remote control buttons.
Questions: Arelcdpc monitor / tv combos as reliable and easilyaccessed asstraight-up lcd tvs? Is the monitor/tv also a stand alone tv or does it require connection to the pc? Does the pc need a tv card for an additonal $200?
PS: To keep this forum related, let me add that she has taken an interest in fz1 photos. I can give her the opportunity to look at photos on her monitor/tv at her liesure.
