TV Tuner Questions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
EDIT: Scratch those other questions, found the answers myself, but I'm still unsure of the one below.

Finally, I have an Acer AL1951 19" LCD with a resolution of 1280x1024. Does this mean that it can show 720p? This tuner is for a laptop that has a native 1280x800 resolution, so this can also show 720p if I don't have my big LCD with me?

Thanks

Yes, it should. 720P is 1280x720.

So as long as I have a DVI input on my monitor i'm good? Cause i'm reading that the monitor has to support HD, but does that mean it has either a DVI or HDMI input?

I don't think it matters for over the air broadcasts. HD is not really a spec, it just depends on the resolution. Your monitor could be considered HD because it is 1280x800 which is better than 720P.
I think you are thinking of HDCP which is required for some HD-DVDs, Blu-ray discs, and DVDs, but not for over the air broadcasts or cable.

Ok I think I got it then, so I'm covered either way since I have a DVI input on my monitor? I'm planning to get a bluray player for the lappy in a year or two when they hopefully come down in price.

Where's the TV Tuner question?


For BluRay playback, you need to make sure you have HDCP compatible video card+monitor and a digital connection between the two.
