I tried using the tv without the box, which i probably should've done before i posted this, and all i got was white noise. So I'm assuming that i would need the box to use it on my pc?
It's probably not going to work without the cable box. If your cable provider sends some of the channels in Clear QAM, you might be able to receive those without a box. However, if you can't tune in any channels on your TV without a box, you definitely won't be able to with just a TV Tuner card. I think that manufacturers make it purposely difficult to configure TV on your PC so that you will give up and buy a pre-configured system.
