I have DirecTV service with the receiver box but I would like to watch TV on my computer. Is there a card that will allow me to connect DirecTV box to the computer? I have regular satalite service - not HD.

When the receiver outputs to your TX, is a with a coaxial cable that you have to screw in? If so go to any electronic store or online to find a tv card for PC.

Yes, a coaxial cable leads from the sateite into the transformer box then out of the transformer box to my TV. I just didn't know if the signal is different because the TV card boxes say several different things, none of which I understand.

Why Not A Standard TV Tuner Card With A/V And Coaxial Inputs?

That is my question - will a standard TV Tuner card work with the DirecTV box since it is a digital signal?

The tv card should work because people routinely connect a tv card with a cable box to skip expensive DVR/Tivo. It's electrical signa;s, either analog or digital.
