HV10 with external monitor

Has anyone connected the HV10 to an external LCD monitor? The manual implies that it can be done ("TV screen," page 36), but provides no further details. Presumably the Firewire (DV) port would be used to output signal to the external monitor?

My interest is because I would like to use two or three HV10s in a multi-camera setup, with the ability to toggle between them using a single monitor and Firewire switch. Appreciate any comments.

I have gone out through the Component cable that comes with the camera and into a Panny 9" monitor and it worked fine, I have never used a multicamera set up with a switcher, so I can't comment on that, but the camera to monitor part works fine.

Thanks for your feedback, John. The Marshall V-R70P-HDA 7-inch LCD monitor (which I'm considering) also has component video inputs.

I found a 3x1 passive switch for component video for about $50. So it looks like I can hook up to three HV10s into one LCD monitor, with the ability to toggle between them.

What's amazing is that all this equipment could weigh under 10 lbs (3 lbs for the 3 camcorders; 1.8 lbs for the monitor; plus switch and cables). My mind still boggles that so much capability can be condensed into so little size and weight.

I've got one of these:

They're discontinued now but you can still find them used. A lot of HVX users are using them as a cheap alternative to a full broadcast monitor. They have component inputs and fairly accurate color. Obviously the Marshall's are great but quite a bit more expensive.
