  1. Hello folks,

    I am looking to watch my videos on my TV and was wondering what would be a good TV tuner card or device that would make video playback on my PC possible? I am not looking to rip TV shows or anything, just use my windows media player on my big screen TV and play back videos. Keep in mind that I'm on a budget. Thanks

    I;m little confused here.
    Do u mean u want to watch tv in your PC (video entertainment)
    OR you mean you would watch your videos in computers in a TV?

    #1: TV tuner, i've came across most brand from hauppage, leadtek, winTV, videomate and pinnacle. The most important thing is the interface you would like to use whether its a PCI, USB, or even a PCMCIA.

    #2: TV-Out cable, or if your GPU doesnt have one, VGA to TV out converter will do.
