Default Entertainment area. Cable tv. computer 360. etc

Ok i am moving into a new room in my house, and i will have the cable modem there for internet and my wireless router. I will also be having cable TV in the room. What i am looking to do if to find a way to use my Computer monitor as a tv screen, but have the cable hooked up to my computer still so what i am thinking is what i need is a tv tuner card? not to sure on that one. and i also want to hook up my 360 to the monitor since my 360 is my main dvd player. if that is not that clear let me know i can explain better.

Sounds right. I'm not sure if a TV tuner will allow the 360 though. You might be able to plug your 360 right into a monitor. If you got one of the monitors we sold at work then that isn't going to work but you got yours from the egg right?
