Hi! I have been looking at tft monitors for sale - however, I would like one withan in-built TV tuner, but have found these to be much more expensive.
What I would like to know is, is there something like a 'box' which the monitor can be plugged into, which recieves TV signals enabling me to watch TV on the monitor (preferbaly with a remote control)?
You can get a PCI card which goes into the PC and which allows you to watch TV on your monitor - they cost from about £30 upwards; some receive digital if you have a good aerial. Do a search on, for example, dabs or ebuyer for tv tuners.
Thanks for hose quick responses people! However, sorry but I forgot to mention - I have looked t these cards but for them to work the PC muct be switched on and Windows running (I think anyway) - I want to know if there is something like an external box which makes the monitor work as a normal TV, with no need for the computer to be switched on?
