    Someone claiming that tvs should have their tuners removed when we already have that in monitors is anything but pedantic. Sure PDPs are not your ordinary sophisticated computer monitor as they're aimed at a different market but they remain monitors. If you want to be pedantic you should also distinguish between tvs and tv-sets. The latter is a unit which can receive and display broadcast signals. A tunerless tv connected to a computer is no longer a tv-set throwing a spanner into your definition of what's a monitor and what isn't.

    Actually you should just get off the word monitor altogether as it doesn’t fit your argument at all.

    The term monitor even includes speakers.

    Anything can receive broadcast signals depending on what’s connected to it.

    Even a pure PC display. So where do you want to draw the line?

    The fact is if it doesn’t do it natively without help it doesn’t require a TV license and that’s all we care about really.

    Actually you should just quit this argument altogether as it's bordering on the absurd.
