A TFT (Thin Film Transistor) monitor is a type of LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) monitor. They are often used as computer monitors, but can also be used as televisions. TFT monitors have a number of advantages over traditional CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) televisions. They are much thinner and lighter, use less power, and produce less heat. They also have a wider viewing angle and can be placed closer to walls or other objects. However, TFT monitors also have some disadvantages. They can be more expensive, and their image quality can be poorer than that of CRT monitors. Additionally, TFT monitors can suffer from ghosting, which is when fast-moving objects leave a trail behind them on the screen. If you want to use a TFT monitor as a TV, there are a few things you need to do.
The first thing you need to do is make sure that your TFT monitor has a TV tuner. Most computer monitors do not have TV tuners, so you will need to buy a separate one. You will also need to buy an antenna. Once you have a TV tuner and an antenna, you will need to connect them to your TFT monitor. This can usually be done using a VGA cable. Once you have connected the TV tuner and antenna to your TFT monitor, you will need to configure them. This can usually be done using the on-screen menu. Once you have configured the TV tuner, you should be able to watch TV on your TFT monitor.
If you want to improve the image quality of your TFT monitor, you can buy a separate video scaler. This will scale the video signal from the TV tuner to the resolution of your TFT monitor. This will improve the image quality, but will also increase the cost. If you want to use your TFT monitor as a TV and a computer monitor, you can buy a dual-purpose TV tuner. These TV tuners have both a TV tuner and a computer input, so you can connect both your TV and your computer to the same TV tuner. This will allow you to watch TV and use your computer on the same screen. However, it will not improve the image quality of your TFT monitor.
