    Composite video isn't very good. Your RPTV will look better. On the other hand, computer monitors are usually set too bright, so you may see more detail in dark areas (although they may be washed out). You will likely see all sorts of composite video artifacts...shimmering lines, jagged edges, etc. Resolution will suck.

    A composite video cable is extremely cheap. It is of such low bandwidth you won't notice any difference between a monster cable and a cheap radio shack cable.
