I have Nero on my computer and its got me thinking "hey wouldn't it be cool to watch tv on my nice computer monitor instead of my crappy bulky tube tv"? When I click on on to watch tv though it says I need a Tv card. I'm looking on newegg and even some of these 30$ ones look good saying 125 channels, and thats about how many channels i get anyways.So do you just put it in a PCI port and run a coax cable to it or is there more to it that? Thanks for reading this topic I appreciate it. :thumbsup:

Put the card in the PCI slot if it is a PCI card. Depending on what type of connectors the card has you just have to connect some sort of areal to it and install the drivers and software that comes with the card and a way you go!

The software for it might not always be good but see what you think before you decline it :thumbsup:
