Default 17 Inch LCD to TV?

I just got a new monitor for my computer. My old monitor was a 17inch Envision LCD Monitor (EN-7100si). It has a D-SUB port and AC-In...nothing fancy.

I would liek to convert it into a little TV for my Xbox. Is there a way to convert the TV signal into a D-SUB signal?

...there will be no computer involved...just an Xbox...maybe a DVD player...and the monitor.

Any suggestions?

Would this one work?

How well do these work? Will I basically be able to play Xbox/Xbox360 on a LCD monitor?

Yep, that would work, as would this, if you trust ebay...

Yeah, it's got me tempted... I like the idea of balancing my ps2 on top of my comp and being able to play both on the same screen...
