I am currently looking for a new TV screen since my current one is over 15 years old (about time, I guess).
I am seriously considering upgrading to a HTPC in the future (I am using a HDD recorder right now) mainly because of the improved flexibility and interface.
What I'm wondering: is it possible to hook up a computer flatscreen to a HDD recorder? I can imagine connecting it to a HTPC should be no problem at all (obviously).
The main reason I am asking this question is because I notice that computer screens are considerably cheaper than TV-screens and to me, it seems the payoff is that you can simply buy bigger TVs. In my personal case, 24" or perhaps 30" would be enough.
So, are there any good reasons to use a monitor screen as your primary TV screen and are there also good reasons not do it?
