ok fm does mean fm radio signals,

as for the tv plugging in a couldnt be certain,

there are 2 main types of tv cars. 1, will allow you to plug your tv into the card so you can watch tv through an existing cable / sky box,

the other is a tuner card which you connect an arial to and watch from a decoder built into the card,

which 1 that card is im afraid i couldnt tell you?

In my personal opinion, that is one of the best TV cards on the market right now.

If you want to record, the software can do that for you, and it's really easy to set up.

You can hook that tuner right up to your cable, and there ya go, high-definition TV.. Given you have an HD monitor and video card. I think you will like that card, it is much better than the one I have.. It is also better than most on the market right now.

Yes, of course, it's cable TV. Just like watching cable on a regular TV, but connected to more high-tech equipment

You just open up the TV tuner software, go to the channel you want and there ya go.
