      It depends how big would you need your TV to be. If 24-27" is OK there are plenty of LCD monitors with TV Tuners that work great as TV too. I have this one because I don't need a bigger TV yet:

      thanks for answers:) i think lessthen3 figure it out the best,what intrest me,is how to get best quality picture and use it on multiple screens...lessthen3,wha kind of monitor you use,you are after all,a way ahead of us others:) for now,i am thinking to get some 2560-1440 monitor,to get best resolution,so i can put more tables and see them better...only problem is that 27 inch w that resolution is around 800,1000 euro in croatia:( for that price is possible to buy two lcd TV from 37 inch or even more...so there is the issue:) thanks again for ur opinions...
