Re video card //rgb connection// use tv as monitor and broadcast receiver Tags: Tuner Cards TV Connection Graphics Cards Monitors Graphics Last response: August 10, 2011 6:49 PM in Graphics & Displays Share perplexed2011 August 10, 2011 5:46:09 PM Hello, 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? Thanks...

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? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
