TFT monitors can be used as a TV screen with a little modification. They just need a "TV combo box" which helps to receive antenna signals and transform them into formats that are visible on TFT screens.

Can an LCD monitor be used as a flat screen tv without a computer hookup but hooked to a satellite system?

As far as I know, you CAN'T. While some LCD monitors do have a tv tuner and can process the data coming from the satelite receiver...most can't. If you are in the market for an lcd screen and want to make dual use of it, look for one that includes a component (R, Yb, G) input in addition to the standard VGA connection. You can however, use any monitor be it LCD or CRT as a tv if you have something like an AverMedia tv tuner (stand-alone tv tuner that will decode tv signal from your satellite box). There are some LCD monitors that do have multiple inputs, and are meant to be used as computer monitors as well as TVs. Good luck
