At my last job (still looking, incidentally, so if you need a solder 
slinger, metal basher or server wrangler in NW Scotland, y'know...) we 
had a 9" portable LCD TV with composite, S-video and VGA inputs.  No 
SCART, unfortunately.  It was great for using as a shooting monitor and 
also for debugging headless Mac installations.
