Question: Connecting TV to PC with TV-Out using my old tv
I plan on getting a new PC sometime in the future and the Graphics Card will have a tv-out. I generally don't feel like spending the extra money on a tv tuner card, I would rather it be spent elsewhere, since I'm using antenna which gets me about 9 channels.
Anyways I am wondering how the install works, I am assuming the card will have s-video connection.
First of all, I have a really old tv w/ a RF connection only, so I am figuring I have to get a device to accept S-video to RF.
1) If I connect the s-video it just accepts the video correct? Therefore, I want to get the sound through the new surround sound speakers I plan on getting. My question is can I get the audio to go through the pc speakers or does it have to come through the TV? My tv has no outputs except an RF connection.
2)Does the tv have to be on to watch tv? I am wondering if it possible for cable connection but not for normal TV due to the amplified antenna (although I do have a separate aftermarket amplified antenna that hooks up to my RF modulator. The modulator is used for gaming consoles and has RCA connectors).
3) Finally, does getting a tv tuner allow the tv to left off or does it have to be on either way?
