I had to do a complete system restore. I am not sure if this is my problem or if it is the new all digital signal thing. I connected the pc directly to the coax cable and I do not get anything. just a black screen. Does this mean I need a set top box for my pc? I subscribe to our local cable company and I do use a set top for the tv. All updates have been installed since the complete sys. restore.

The coax cable...must be connected to a modem, either cable or DSL...before your computer can receive the proper signals from the modem or a router.

Who is your Internet Service Provider?

Did they provide any instructions or materials?
