  1. Ok, I just recently ordered a Sony Computer that comes with a TV Tuner. Now, I have Comcast Digital Cable and I was wondering what chord/line I need to hook up my TV Tuner.

    Do I need to run a line from my TV to my Computer?

    Well all you need if its the tv tuner I think it is(whats the model of the sony?). Then all you need is the line from the wall jack which more than likely it is a coaxial cable. Then you run the giga pocket program that comes with sony or whatever program it uses. You have to configure the software on first use to come in contact with all the channels that you are using. If you tv has a coaxical out you can run a cable to your tv then to your computer. But if you want to use the recording features I believe it has to be from the wall to the computer.

    Im talking about the RB series Sony Desktops. The TV Tuner is included already.

    So all i have to do is:

    1) Run a coaxial cable from my wall to my computer?

    Do i need a split cable thing?

    I'm really bad at this, so try to break it down slowly

    Ok from the wall jack you can put a splitter if you need the connection to go to another tv but if not just one coaxical cable from the wall to the input of the back of the computer and thats it.
