Are there any TV cards that work with digital cable? What are some excellent and recommended TV cards?

all tv cards will work with digital cable. ati's all-in-wonder line is supposed to be good... and there are geforce4's with VIVO (video-in/video-out).

I'm talking about something like this.

I already have a GeForce4 Ti4400, but do I need a TV Tuner Card to watch cable on my pc?

in that case, i would have no idea. but if you're gonna record from digital cable, you don't need one with coaxial input. you'll get better quality from composite video (yellow rca jack). just wanted to throw that in.

Nah I don't care about recording TV shows on my pc. That's why I have a VCR. :p I just want to watch TV on my PC, since my TV is in the other room, that defeats the purpose of the "vision" part in television. lol

ATI TV-Wonder or the MSI TV@nywhere will work fine. I have the tv wonder in mine and it works ok but it is only a tuner. The ATI looks like it has a remote (you know how we guys are about remotes...can't have to many) and other options.

I have an ATI TV Wonder PCI and it seems to be perfect if all you wanna do is what TV on your PC. I've sold 2 of the MSI cards also and they work good too.

as far as i know, digital cable has coaxial output (regular old cable-from-the-wall type) and composite video output (yellow rca jack).

any kind of tv card will have one or both so you're guaranteed compatibility. the composite video will give you a better picture and sound, though.

ati is a good product for sure... msi also makes a very good solution with a remote and all.. very snazzy... either will complement your system...

Yes it will work, but you will have to put your digital cable box in your room, or a splitter in the living room. Then you have to watch whats being watched in there. I think thats right.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
