Using computer LCD as TV?

Ok, So I have a really nice 19" LCD screen computer monitor (so computer hookups) is there a way to hook it into the HD-A1 Player? I mean i could always get an HDTV capture card. but it would be nice to just simply plug the player into my monitor.

Does it have DVI? Is that HDCP compliant? That should work if yes to both quesitons.

OR

Does it have VGA? Do you feel like dropping a couple hundred $$ on a component->VGA transcoder? Might sound expensive, but cheaper than a TV. Or, the Xbox is about to have HDDVD, and it uses a VGA output.

It's DVI, but not sure about HDCP compliant, It's the XA7-19i Xerox screen (only screen xerox makes)
