a tv tuner is essentially tv in. you can tune your tv to your PC! meaning you can watch tv on your monitor...allowing you to record tv and rip it to the internet...illegaly. not like id do that....idk if they are worth the money...i wouldnt have a use for one...than again i dont have cable

You would have to have a video card with video out capabilities. Most newer ones come standard with an S-Video out connection.
