Are you splitting the coax cable that goes to the cable box? If so it probably wont work as the digital cable signal is copy protected. The only way I can think of is to run it to the cable box and then use the component, composite, or hdmi outputs from the box to your pc.

Edit- I think I misread your post and that was not what you were asking. sorry

Sounds liek you need a video capture card, not tuner.

Hi there
there SHOULDN't be any problems - I'm using a Video Sender to send a TV signal from a SKY satellite box to a receiver and then use the COMPOSITE signal as input to the Hauppage card.

The Video sender "strips off" any macrovision DRM crud too - although I don't think SKY TV's signal has any protection when routed through a Video sender.

The problem is with WMC is that there's no COMPOSITE INPUT channel facility unless you have some sort of remote -- the Hauppage WIN TV software will have a composite input channel.

I'm using a SCART ==> composite converter at the back of the sky box as input to the TV video sender. Pic enc.

Hooking up to TV
I used to be able to watch programs that were on my laptop on my TV via HDMI or via a monitor cable. Now when I try the TV does not "see" the laptop. I have tried to fix this using FN/F5 button but to no avail. With my other laptop it works fine. Any ideas?
