It all has to do with your video card. If you look at the specs on a certain card it should tell you if you are able to hook your tv up to it.

Check this card out.

tigerdirect had some TV Tuners. An average one is about $100. You can find them for more or less...it all depends on what features you want.

Cool would soemthing like this work-
http://www.dabs.com/uk/Search2/Produ...20Tuner%20card

So reading the fatures and stuff you can watch TV, record TV and evrerything.

How do these things come? Are they like graphics card , or just software?? Is it good quality? Do u need anything else besides the tuner?

The one I posted about is like a graphics card. And yes what you posted would work also.

FuRgy...That one will be fine, but it's more for captureing. There are others without all those features that will work as well. Now if you do want to capture video rather than just watching it, that'll be fine.

YoYo... I have a 286 computer with a capture card! Your video card will be FINE

OK, That's excellent.

Would that TV tuner work good with this system-

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ 939 Pins
Asus Geforce 6800 ULtra Deluxe Graphics Card
Asus K8V SE Deluxe Mobo
512MB DDRAM X 3
?

Another question...I don't quite understand how this tuner thing works...I put it in my computer just like a graphic's card...Then what? Surely I have to plug something into it to watch TV and record...?
