Does anyone have any experience of running a console(N64, PS2, or likewise) throught their tv/ tuner. Is the quality very good, or even better than on a TV? Also could i use my monitor as a type of HDTV? I have a 21" viewsonic that i use as my TV? Also whats the best TV tuner (TV Wonder, or personal cinema or something else?)

I ran my playstation through my Radeon AiW that I had for a short while. I found that it magnified the graphical distortion and wasn't as crisp as it was on a good TV, or even some bad ones.

Might be different with some of the newer systems though.

It might have just been the game I played, or the fact that it was an old PSX. Newer consols might have a beter display.

Well, I'm sure it was configured fine. Since a monitor is such a drastic change in dotpitch, it shows the PSX as how it is. Think of the TV as a type of anti-aliasing. =)
