Watch TV on PC monitor while pc off. - Page 2

Ok. Just noitced that they supply the HD set top box but its much more expensive. I have to live with the analogue one tongue.gif

So I just have, Coaxial out, rgb & scart.

I think I should still use dvi TV box so the monitor will be connected via dvi.

Ohh... just noticed that the service provider set top box does not have any DVI or HDMI :s
I just have Coaxial Output and Scart & RCA :s

I'll contact them if they have any HD set top box.
Ok in that case, you may need to get an HD box in order to use your monitor with it. Otherwise you would need some sort of convertor that will take a coaxial cable to a vga signal, and with a quick search, I didnt find anything that could do that.

Edit:

If your sticking with Coaxial, you may need one of the devices that chucklez linked.

Thanks,

I looked at this TV BOX But read in comments that it don't work with Cable tv. It will search channels by frequency.

Cons: Extremely cheap remote. Will only lock onto channels by frequency so will notwork with my cable tv - only get a few basic stations.

Other Thoughts: If you want to use with cable tv, you may be very disapointed with this unit.

Edit --

Is this because it has a Digital Tuner? & I need Analogue tuner to connect with Service Provider STB?

This??

You may need what you just linked, but I dont know for sure because your from a different country. I know here in the US with my cable provider, you can only get a limited amount of channels just from the analog connection (from the Coaxial cable), the remaining channels are decoded within your cable providers box.

It may work, but you wouldnt get all of your channels potentially.
