Connecting a monitor to the K10D

Has anyone ever tried to connect a TV or computer monitor to a K10D to provide a better preview than the l'il LCD screen? I can envision that this would be very helpful for working in the studio. Of course, I could always copy a file from the camera to the drive of a laptop with monitor attached and view it that way but several steps are involved...I'd like to know if anyone has thought of a way to do it more easily.

The video out function works to output to a composite video jack (the yellow jack found on most TVs), but the resolution is limited to standard definition-quality. As a result the video quality looks bad when viewed on flat-panel displays (HDTVs or high resolution computer monitors with adapter). That might limit its usefulness, but I've foud it handy to show a slideshow of the day's shots to a group.
