It does, but don't expect it to look nice. Some text will be basically unreadable. You're better off with a monitor.

yeah... its a standard RCA out, but it really is more trouble than it is worth. It will look bad, and it isn't worth the hassle of find the RCA cable, unraveling it, and hooking up the tv...

Small text is un-readable. I installed XP with the display on a 32" CRT tv and I only managed it from knowing where to go, and not reading text.

It is fine for watching movies though.

They're right about the text. It's completely unreadable. If you even want a CHANCE of reading it, put the resolution on 800x600.
