You could probably do that... if xbox and ps2 work on tvs then I think a computer would. Some plasmas and lcds allow you to do this through a dvi or vga cable.

I'm pretty sure a TV can only show 60fps before it starts to ghoast.

I hooked mine up to my regual tv, the resolution was about as good as leftover refried beans.

I have mine hooked up to my DLP 43" widescreen and the picture is awesome...........

If you going to do this spend the $$ and use DVI.........much better picture quality and clarity with no distortion.
