Hello again. If the Xbox has an HDMI slot you should be OK to connect the Xbox to any TV with an HDMI cable that you can purchase for 1 from a pound shop. Here's the Xbox to TV connection page: http://support.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-3...360-console-tv

Cheap TV's are cheap for good reason, unless you're prepared to pay more for a decent make then that's the sort of quality you're looking at.

It 'may' be perfectly OK for what you want though?.

You might like to consider this Full HD (1920 x 1080 or 1080p) Samsung SyncMaster T22A300 22 inch Widescreen LED Monitor with a Freeview Tuner instead of the (shudders delicately) Blaupunkt. It has 2 x HDMI so you could use one for the Xbox 360 and another for a separate Blu-ray or DVD player (that you could buy as next Birthday present for 30 odd). 161 inc del from this Amazon seller: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-T22A...bs_computers_4

Or have a look at similar Monitors with a TV tuner from a mainstream TV manufacturer with good reviews, but make sure you check there are 2 x HDMI as some of them only have one.

Alternatively this highly rated Samsung UE22F5000 Full HD 22inch LED TV with 2 x HDMI, USB, and a Freeview HD tuner from Amazon for 171 inc del. Much better picture quality than the SyncMaster and vastly superior to the Blaupunkt. A bit out of your price range perhaps, but eminently recommendable even to my worst enemy: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-UE22...dp/B00BXDK1D4/
