Well, are you watching HDTV or regular analog? Big difference. Is it an All-in-Wonder card? The AIW version has a NTSC tuner for analog, no ATSC for HDTV.

Most cards have an S-Video OUTPUT, meaning that you watch your computer on your TV, not vice-versa. You need an All-in-Wonder card for an input.

Or you could just buy a TV Tuner, which has coaxial inputs.
