Hey guys , just a weird question here , i found an awesome 26" monitor for a real bargain ( 120 euros) and instead of buying a TV and use it as a monitor i decided to go dual screen setup using the one i already own and the one i will buy , so my question is , can i use the 26" as my PC monitor and kinda plug in the second one with a tv tuner and use it as a TV? redface.gif

Yes I do this on my PC. I have a TV Wonder 650 card I use to watch TV with, I just open up windows media center and use the live TV option then drag it to my second screen and full screen it, bam instant TV on my second monitor.
