Bought a Sony Bravia 19" LCD TV. Model KDL-19L4000 as a preview monitor for my HD Spark and HD Storm cards.

Tried it with the HD Spark so far and all works fine with SD and HD. EXCELLENT picture quality, in both SD and HD.
Been reading on the threads that we should stick to 16:9. This screen is 16:10 and all is fine. It displays 16:9 with a very small border on top and bottom.
It is 1680x1050, 5.3 mega pixel and has a higher pixel/inch density than the 20" Sonys with 1366x768 resolutions.

Cost me 209 here in the UK. has 2 x HDMI slots and Component.

Here's a good site to calculate viewing sizes on TVs

" I rang DVC yesterday and I was told that the Viewsonic works in HD and SD."
This is true although it works at HD PAL sizes and 16:9 SD. It does not work at 4:3 SD.

Our tests with the BenQ 2400HD give a very good picture at HD (1920 & 1440 @ 50hz) but it does not work at either 16:9 or 4:3 SD @ 50Hz but appears to work with 16:9 SD 60hz (NTSC).

SD support on lots of HDMI monitor has been really poor with the Storm and Spark. The same monitors that will not work with the Thompson cards will work with the Black Magic cards. I don't know why right now.

Just letting everyone know that this monitor works fine with HDSpark:

Dell S2209W (22") or S2409W (24").

It is a 1920x1080 native display with DVI in (You will need a HDMI-to-DVI cable, which is very cheap). It plays 1080/720/480 (although 4:3 is stretched to fit the screen). I went through 3 monitors and found this one to be a good one. There is no 1:1 pixel mapping, though. The HDSpark outputs 1920x1080 or 1280x720 so even your 1440x1080 HDV stuff will go out as 1920x1080. DVCPROHD 1280x1080 / 960x720 also works fine.

Did you try any PAL settings or just NTSC? I have found quite a few monitors work ok @ 30fps but not 25.

I'm a bit confused by the monitor question. With an HD Spark, will I be able to see SD 4x3 output as well as 16x9 SD and HDV on any of the monitors mentioned above?

Seems like 4x3 SD is the sticking point for NTSC monitors and HD Spark output. Do I have this correct?

Yes. I just edit PAL, not NTSC, but have yet to find a monitor that will do 4:3 PAL. I have some that do 16:9 PAL but not 4:3. These same monitors handle HD resolutions ok.
I do have some monitors that don't work on any PAL settings but do work on NTSC. It is a bit of a minefield unfortunately...

I will check if my Dell will do PAL. I know my 40" Bravia LCD does 4:3 PAL via Component in from the NX. I was surprised by this since it's an NTSC LCD.

The monitors that do component work for me at all resolutions with the HDStorm. Its the HDMI that is the problem. Its not just the SPARK that suffers from this - I have similar problems when I plug my Sony HC3 into some screens.
Strangely some screens that dont work with the camera or SPARK work with a Black Magic Intensity which is allegedly set to the same settings (ie: PAL 4:3). That just makes the problem of know what screen will do what rates even more annoying if you ask me.
