Question:How do I connect TV cable to my computer? What all is required?
Answer: To connect your TV to your computer you will need a TV tuner video card or a video card with a TV input which is is a regular video card but it will also have a coaxial cable connector that you can plug your TV cable into. It will usually come with software that you can use to watch TV on your computer. Just make sure whatever card you get supports TV in rather than TV out or has both features.
