  1. You need the Direct TV box connected to a TV that is all.

    Thankyou for your answer, however, what I need to know is can I hook the Direct TV box directly to a LCD Monitor or only to a tv. When direct Tv installed they hooked it up to AV1 on my flat screen (and he said it could not, at this time, be hooked up to component 1) so I assume that it does not need to run through a tv tuner?
  3. The Output of the DTV box is video so,
    Tuner not needed, You an hook it to the LCD monitor if the cabling is compatable.
    R,G,B to R,G,B or Y,W,R, to Y,W,R or any conversion cable.
    Does your monitor have a DVI input?
  4. Direct TV box does not, only RCA jacks
