"TV Out" feature on a graphics card

By jimfrancisco ·
Does this mean you can watch TV on your PC or that you can use your TV as a monitor or something completely different?

RE: TV out

A lot of newer cards and laptops have a composite output for a TV. they go to the AV in on your tv. you can also connect audio outputs from your sound card to the tv. this is most often used if you have a DVD on your computer, so you can watch it onyour tv. Some cards like the ATI allinwonder have inputs, outputs and a tuner. with them you can watch tv on your PC. I use a dual monitor setup at home and put the dispay up in one corner.

The ATI AllInWonder card, in my opinion is a great card. The card consists of standard cable in for viewing television on the monitor, and s-cable out for using your TV as a monitor. The ATI also has input and output for sound. Included in the kit is an adapter for using the VCR, DVD. The one thing I have found, at times my system freezes when changing channels to repidly while using the monitor for viewing televison.
