I understand that a monitor has no built-in tuners of any sort.
With that said, suppose I was going to feed said monitor only DirecTV and DVD signals? Is there anything in a regualr HDTV that has to decode or otherwise mess with the signal? Or even with a DirecTV HD signal I still need something for the monitor to handle it?
I'm a good ways away from buying a set, so this is just to satisfy my curiousity. Thanks ahead of time.
