old pc to media centre

  dark-horse 15:16 16 Mar 2005

I want to convert a spare pc to a media centre. Can I connect a telewest satellite box to the pc wihout a tv card, as long as I watch it on the PC monitor (i.e no s-video out source needed). What do I need to do it?

u need a tv-in card to connect the box to your pc

(Telewest is cable, not satellite, by the way)
