Re: How to get TV reception on my computer
what kind of TV cable? If it's RCA (yellow type) then the signal will be very unclear and the text will be impossible to read without the windows magnifier. Svideo will work, but I don't suggest it. Svideo to component cable splitter have given me great results with 1080i. And then there's DVI-I to HDMI converters which give you 1080p-1200p HD quality.
I would just suggest buying a monitor, and using a DVI-I cable from your video card straight to the monitor. It's often a PITA to use a television as a monitor unless it's small enough to fit on your desk, or is big enough to be read clearly across the room.
