Ive got a pc and a graphics card that says something about a tv tuner. i was wondering if this meant i could watch tv on it. if so can someone please tell me how to go about it.(anything i would have 2 buy?) have any of you guys got the set up.
click here I've had a look at the card here, think it's the same one, but it does not mention TV tuner.
It does say TV output, but that will mean, you can connect to your TV and play games/movie's from your PC, and watch them on the telly.
Usually, but not always you need a separate card. (TV tuner card). This fits into one of the pci slots on the rear of PC, and all you need to do is run an aerial cable to it, and tune in your channels. Have a look at your card, does it have a socket to take a coaxial cable. J
Again, it will depend on your O/S. If you are using win xp then it should be ok, if not you will need a driver for it, probably from the ATI website.
But once installed and set up through the driver, you can connect an extension aerial cable from your TV/Video, and then tune into the Chanel's, some cards have auto. tuners and will find the stations for you.
You will then have the choice of watching TV in full screen on your monitor, or in a reduced window while you do other work on the PC. J.
