Not really what you're asking, but I suspect the technology is similar :
I recently needed to show the output of an HP71 handheld computer to a
small audience, and I found that a borrowed video projector (which could
accept SVGA and composite video inputs) could display the composite
output of HP's 80 column video interface (which is a fairly normal
6845-based design, and which outputs composite monochrome video at RS-170
The only thing was it was best to tell the projector that it was getting
'NTSC' video rather than letting it autodetect. Maybe it was the absense
of the colourburst or something, but it sometimes got a bit confused.
Mu guess, without trying it  is that a modern LCD TV would have no
problems with home computer output.
 Personally, I'd rather have a CRT-based monitor that I can understand
and repair than an LCD thing full of big ASICs.
