    How best to watch TV from your PC?


    Hi,


    Usually I buy tv series that I like to watch and don't get any tv reception. But sometimes there are series or seasons of series that don't seem to be available on DVD. Often though it seems you can watch them on something like Amazon Prime maybe? Some computer based methods anyway... I've tried watching tv from the computer, but the method I'm trying has a very crappy picture. On the computer screen it looks great but on the tv is sucks. I'm using a Sabrent pc to tv converter box much like the one here:


    https://www.sabrent.com/product/TV-PC85/sabrent-pc-tv-converter-box/


    Not having a smart tv I need something that can run through an RCA cable to a switch box, then from there it goes through a VCR and out of the VCR via coax to a little amp box then splits from there to the tv in the living room and the tv in the kitchen. Old and lame as that method is it still provides good clear picture quality so I know those type cables can do the job and that's how I'd like to do it from the computer so I can use the switch boxes to go from the DVD players, or my video camera, or the PC. So can anyone suggest a good way to get the PC signal using RCA cables to the switch box? The audio can run separately from the video...that's how it's going now from the PC through a switch box to a receiver and it does okay, though there is some low hum involved with that.


    Thank you for any suggestions on this!


    David

    How best to watch TV from your PC?

    Watch TV through my PC?

    you can use a TV tuner card as suggested, or a USB tuner device. this will also enable you to record TV shows to your computer.
    another option is buying a monitor that also support TV/Cable input. this way you can watch TV without turning on your computer.
    I have two Samsung 225ms in the kids rooms, which I can highly recommend.
