What type of input does the 19" monitor have? Unless it will match the output of your satellite box, you're done.
Folks, I've searched the forums, but can't find any simple directions for my question. I have an 'old' 19" Dell E193FP LCD Monitor I found in the garage and am wanting to use it to watch tv in my bedroom. Please keep in mind that I am TOTALLY techno ignorant, so instead of the old clunker I have now. When I read things about "cards", "imputs", connections, etc., I am lost! I have Direct TV Satellite right now in the bedroom and the tech hooked it up through an old CD/DVD player sitting on the floor. I have the little satellite box on top of the tv right now. When I want to watch tv, I just point the remote at the satellite box, click, and it turns on. I don't think I have any 'speakers' per say to go with the computer monitor. The speakers are now on the 'newer' monitor on my computer. Is there a SIMPLE way to connect this all up or do I have to have tech savvy? Do I need to buy a lot of things? I am debating whether to try it or just give the monitor to my son.
Thanks So Much!
