The plan is to connect RGB ports between the laptop and the TV. Would a video card allow for the TV to function both as a monitor and the TV, with the usual channels and so on? And then...what video card(s) to choose from?

They aren't building modern graphics cards with built in tuners anymore, you will have to buy a separate tuner card or USB tuner.

I'm not sure I understand the point though, if it is indeed a TV and not a monitor why would you not just use the TV to tune your channels?
