May somebody guide me to connect my HP w1707 monitor with my HD sattelite box and turn my lcd monitor in tv. My monitor has got DVI-D and VGA ports and the satellite box has got HDMI and composite S ports(three port for video and audio). Do I need a TV tuner card for it.May you please advise the best TV card for it.

Also,should I be compromising on the HD picture quality if I use the aforesaid PC monitor as tv.

Greetings . you just need a dvi to hdmi adapter should not cost more than 5$ you will still need to output audio to some speakers. I have this set up in a room in my house with harmon/kardon 2.1 . and it's a great movie / entertainment room.

Thanks for your valued omments
