We are finishing our basement and will have three TVs side-by-side-by-side. I want to know what the best set-up (i.e. most cost effective) would be for these TVs. I want the ability to control them all separately and would like them all to show HD channels. Our cable provider is Cox.

My initial plan was to hook up a cable box to the main TV and then use cable cards on the other two TVs. I haven't gotten the TVs yet but it looks like the options are limited for TVs that are cable card ready.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

3 x Acer Revo RL70-UR10P

Hook all four of these devices up to a wired computer network. Connect each PC to each HDTV. Assign one Tuner to each PC and you should be good to go.

It's a much higher up front cost, but over the long run, you save the cost of leasing three set top boxes.
