TV for editing

I shoot on a canon XH A1 and I was wondering how worthwhile it is to get a small CRT TV? I've seen them in a few setups;

I currently have a 32" TOSHIBA LCD running at 1360x768 for my primary display and a 17" BENQ LCD running at 1280x1024 as the secondary display.

I want to buy a satellite TV card for my computer, but I could just as easily get a small CRT and put it next to my current setup.

Any thoughts?

I don't understand the sattelite card part - what does it have in common with video editing?

As far as watching the footage you edit on a TV: it's OK because the color space of computer monitors is different from the color space of TV monitors.

Best option: use a calibrated studio monitor.
