I don't know for sure, but I doubt very much that the monitor will take the place of a video capture card. It can play video or dvd from an external source, but I don't think it will capture the video.
Some models do have a built in TV tuner, mine does.All you have to do is feed the TV\DVD\video\audio signal in to the monitor.
The remote control gives you the option to start in p.c. ,pip , video and audio. It also gives you the option to use the PC and have a separate window, you choose the size, to have the t.v. , video or DVD running. In effect it is a standard tft p.c. monitor. Then it is a tft t.v. that can take all the extras a t.v. can take.
The only thing it does not do is allow you to capture the signal.
