    Anyone got any hands on experience with the Viewsonic VB50 "tuner"? It's a tuner/decoder that plugs into any VGA monitor & lets you plug in game consoles, watch TV, DVDs etc. It's not a plug-in card - it's purely for watching things using the monitor, no PC involved.

    I'm curious as to its RGB pass-thru quality, which is supposedly very good for its price ($99). But reviews are hard to come by.

    Yeah, they look very interesting. I'm really looking for something that will handle PAL games, and I'm unsure it will. I may need to go buy one at CompUSA & give it a whirl.
