Monitor / Graphics / Software question...Huge Newb Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Monitors Software Last response: July 13, 2009 7:05 PM in Graphics & Displays Share lations July 13, 2009 6:45:07 PM Hey guys, I am not sure this is in the right spot, but I couldn't find a better place. I am getting my first desktop and I really want a 30in Monitor and the ability to do PiP. I want to be able to hook up a dvr box from comcast to the monitor and also the computer, so I can watch tv in a small box while computing. There was a discontinued gateway monitor that said it could do this and I cann't find another one that claims the same. Is there a software program that i can do this with? Price is not a concern if I can find a way to hook this up with a great monitor. ANY help is very appreciated. Thanks.

I thought the tuners basically were over the air receivers that would basically get no channels in a more rural area. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
