I have like 300 channels (dish network) though my parents are usually the ones using it.. I don't watch TV often.. if I wanna watch a show, it's generally not on TV.. so I download it.

Yes, it is possible. My coworker have a high definition tuner card in his PC. Rare finding, but he manage to get one at Fry's Electronics. I don't even see Newegg carrying the product.

yeah, you should be able to watch cable and satalite on your computer if you have a tv tuner... other than that.. you can just google for the shows you want to watch and you will find them or just download a shareware program

uh.... HD take 480p and 720p.. both are HD resolutions.. what are they in english?

480p = 640x480
720p = 1280x720 (widescreen)

CRT is beyond HD, my friend.
