I asked essentially the same thing here a few weeks ago, plus I
searched the web far and wide, but I didn't find anything that would
suggest that this is possible.  It seemed like it would require
spending around $100 on a VGA/TV converter, cheaper ones generally
being poorly reviewed.  In the end, I got rid of the monster 160-pound
32" TV and replaced it with a 32" LCD TV, which can display even SD
recordings much clearer than the tube TV.
