Is there a way to rig up a second monitor to my desktop so I can watch Netflix/Youtube/Hulu in the living room, while keeping my computer and main monitor on my desk in the bedroom? What sort of equipment is needed?

Thanks

Just a second SVGA. Does it matter?

What size?
It can matter.

Hall monitors generally don't need long cables. Just a sash, clipboard or badge.
