Video card connection to TV/Cable out

  1. My Visiontek 5564 Xstasy Everything vid card crapped out lst week. I purchased and installed the GeForce3 Ti500. How do i connect the personal tuner cinema box to the card in order to view/record TV/Cable on my PC using Intervideo's WinDVR v3? And if that doesn't fly, what box connects the RJ11 TV/Cable wire to my vid card to operate WinDVR v3?

    Thx for your assistance...

    All you need to do is connect your S-Video cable to your TV-Out port at the back of your video card and plug it into your TV/Receiver, the rest should do itself. This is only for Video Output BTW.

    Also, it would be a good idea to have your computer off while you connected that cables, but you know this ;) .

    ok. so the GeForce3 Ti500 does not support Cable-IN to record. swell. i purchased the wrong vid card. which other vid card, besides the dual monitor out 5564 Xtasy Everything can handle the Cable-IN, but with a single monitor out (dont need the dual out)?

    Look for cards that have VIVO as part of the name.
