yes, i've seen folks at work do this at my old job. Its just an adapter that converts composite/svid inputs to VGA 15 pin output.

ATI All-In-Wonder or a TV card. I would recommend Hauppauge.

depends on if you are wanting to use pvr or not... they have several good passthrough boxes at fry's for about 100 bucks... and it will allow you to hookup anythign that has rca jacks to it and export the signal to vga.... thought about getting one so I an play xbox on it from time to time... but then decided it wasn't worth it

I have the All-In-Wonder Radeon 9600 which will allow you to do it. Its just like a built in Tivo. I have it run to a Samsung 213T and it works out great... Watch TV and Surf the net at the same time..
