Yesterday my 20" LCD arrived (thanks dad for the b-day present :wuv. Anyways I was wondering what the best way to watch tv or play xbox on it. Would it be to buy an analog tv tuner for pci or is there a way to have it going from analog signal to monitor w/o it going through the pc?

Thanks,
Zozio.

I come to notice that some of the Digital Cable boxes have DVI-out. So if you had one that way would work, other wise i'd just grab a HDTV card. Be warned the video will only be like 640x

At my Mom's (where I live 10 out of 12 months in the year) we still use antenaes. My dad has cable, which I will check out, but I am less concerned about whether he has it for obvious reasons.
