No technical reason as far as I can see other than bad design not getting rid of the heat generated.
Luckily, most TVs are better designed as far as heat dissipation is concerned.

I can see a snag using a TV as a dashcam though

Very Happy

I didn't think it was legal to have any screen display on any dash cam whilst the car was moving?

The Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 state that the screens on cameras must not be displaying footage at any time while the vehicle is in motion. If the screen is on and the driver can see it, this is classed as a serious offence.


In which case millions of vans on the road without rearview mirrors as they can't see out the back... Wink


Rearview cameras are permitted. The regulations regarding rearview mirrors were changed and mirrors or rearview cameras are now referred to as Devices for Indirect Vision.
