EVGA 590sli board - any way to hook up satallite TV to it?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
my sig rig. no tuner card.

i, like an idiot, let my big ol' 36" tube tv fall and explode today, so i had to move the room TV into the living room.

my computer is in my room, next to the satallite box. now i have S-Video on my GPU, and the HD audio on my MOBO, is there anyway without a tuner card to hook this up? crappy if i cant cuz i cant afford a tuner card atm, but i figured if anyone knew how to do it, it would be you guys.

also, if this would be better put into a different forum please let me know. thanks in advance folks

Donny, what kind of box is it? Can you provide the brand and model?

Good luck

I doubt it. In most cases you need a tuner card. If you want to have convenience you will also then need the Windoze Media Remote, which allows you to change channels (if you have the IR Transceiver) etc.

I have this setup atm. Actually was thinking of parting it out, PM me if interested.
