It should be noted that a precisely calibrated video monitor is necessary to prepare material for broadcast. For your own use or non-broadcast playback, it's easier to cheat a little...

I would try to find the best quality telkevision you can afford...and it has to have a video input of course, not just an antenna input (which almost all modern sets have...)

I would visit the two links specified above and get some background on calibrating television monitors...but I would also check out some links on reading waveform monitors and vectorscopes. (FCP is featured, but the info is solid.)

There must be more, I'm sure... I can't find any specifically on scopes in PPro.

If you understand what the scopes are telling you, the absolute accuracy of your monitor will become less of an issue.
