Directv on PC - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
Dang, my Directv receiver only has S-Video, which is lower than cable right? The box only has Satellite-In, nothing like Satellite-Out.

NTSC is the analog over the air TV signal and digital is the ATSC and clear QAM. I like the ASUS just cause they have the sidebar that will load with windows. I got another card but I'm thinking about selling it just cause of the sidebar feature. And, I noticed that the one that you where looking at was with the FM tuner, ASUS has that as well with some of there cards. I really like this one.

Edit: Can you link me to your reciever? I'm only up for a couple more minutes but I will try to help.

You should have no problems connecting that via coax with the card that I linked.

You can do this, it is just like any other TV.

hook up the Dtv Receiver to the tuner card then start the Program, and switch channels through the remote and the DTV receiver.

But I thought you said that the Coax Cable can only be plugged into the Output because Input is used for the connection of the dish.

Okay, now I'm confused, lol. You just run the coax from your dish to the reciever, then from your reciever to your card via coax. It will work just fine and as stated above, if you do now want to use the coax, you can use the s-video. Let me look in my other posts and see what I said that confused you.


Edit: Crap dude, I'm sorry. I was looking at the pic on my phone at work and didn't notice that the two coax inputs where sat and air. If you use the s-video you will be fine though. I am looking for an adapter so that you can hook it up with the RGB connections. I think this will give you a better picture.

does S-Video even have sound?? do need the Red a White cables also?

EDIT: I'm sorry for being a noob, but I haven't been on top of the A/V stuff in a long time.

I'm not real sure but I think the s-video has sound. If not, it's just RCA cables and they are rather cheap.
