Just how do you hook cable up to a TV tuner card?

  1. Building a new system, will include
    an ASUS TV tuner card.

    Looked at a pic on the net, it's got
    an FM in, RF in (both of which look
    like the standard cable tv hookup)
    and what I think is an S-video in
    (round female plug with a number
    of holes).

    How do you get tv from your cable
    tv box into that?

    Thanks as always!

    I would guess you'd just use a coaxial cable from the cable box's output and connect it to the tuners rf input jack.

    Figured it had to be relatively simple

    Guess I was confused by the multiple hookups,
    and didn't know for sure what "rf" stands for
    or what the hookup was for.

    What's the advantage of and use for the video-S
    round hookup?

    It allows you to connect to the S-video out of any video device, ie. Video Camera, DVD Player.

    S video would be a higher quality signal. The picture would look clearer with it.
