How can I use my computer monitor as my TV?
I want to view my TV with my monitor because my monitor is HD and my TV is not. What would I have to do to hook up my TV digital box to the computer. I would like to be able to view my TV in a smaller window sometimes also when I do other things with the computer too.

Your computer needs to have a cable card. Then you would need to run a coax cable from tv to computer.

It's probably possible, and it just depends on what ports are both set top box and monitor using. If there are some in common (could be e.g. HDMI) then all you need is a proper cable... I can tell you more if you put here what monitor and set top box you have there.

You will need to have TV tuner software installed on your computer and you may even need a card. If you go to somewhere like Best Buy or a computer store they will have what you need.
