    Hauppauge TV Tuner Cards: Which one allows you to receive QAM and ATSC simultaneously

    I am looking for one of these cards that will allow me to run my coaxial cable to receive QAM channels as well as connect my ATSC antenna simultaneously so that I don't need to switch them back and forth. Or is there some kind of adapter I can use? Thanks!

    Recommendations for home viewing of medical imaging

The only time I can get Dolby Digital 5.1 output is when I'm using Media Center and watching HDTV. However, whenever I play...

    Itching to purchase an eee PC, need some general advice

    I want to preface this by saying that I intend to use the eee PC solely for light internet browsing and MS Office 2007.

    Trouble multi-tasking with 8600GT

    I recently acquired an 8600GT, replacing my X800GTO. I normally like to play my MMO in one window and watch TV in another. With the x800GTO, this was no problem. With the 8600GT, though, whenever the game window is active, the TV becomes very choppy (although sound is fine). Is this a property...
