It seems to be working with the coax thingy, so that's okay! Thank you for all the suggestions. I do wish I understood this stuff more. :-}

Despite what the TVL bullies want you to think, it is not a requirement to have a TV license if all you do is watch prerecorded videos

Oh I know (and to be fair I've never found them bullying -- they have never sent more than one letter to me at the same address, when I get the letter saying "you know, if you have a TV you should have a licence" I ring them up and say "I don't watch TV, so I don't need a licence"). It's just that the TV takes up so much space! The LCD monitor is about a tenth of the thickness/weight and about the same quality (not great, but adequate). :) And it seems silly to buy a top-quality TV when we don't watch TV.

I was briefly tempted by the gazilllion-inch Apple monitor thing but decided that a) we just don't watch enough TV/video/DVD/etc to justify it, & b) it would be really silly to buy something enormous and fragile before moving house. :-}
