    Ok I have a TFT monitor with a Dvi in and normal D-Sub (Sony M81)

    Now I want to connect my sky digital box to this But I don’t what to have my pc on at the same time.

    Anyone know of a good product that will let me connect my sky box via the normal D-Sub with a good resolutions, 1280*1024 would be best

    Thanks for the links. Only thing is the max res is 1024 * 768 which is a little low for a 18.1, or is it?

    Be carefull when you ask a TFT to display any res other than its native res (1280*1024) as this can cause very poor display. You may use the Pro V to convert TV res to 1024*768) and find the TFT using its own ideas on what it wants to display so try and stick to its native res.
