I bought a Westinghouse LVM37-w3 HDTV monitor several months ago as a "do-all" display; I wanted it to act as a computer monitor, HDTV for video games and HD DVD's, and normal TV for my dormroom. It has done all these things flawlessly, except the normal TV part. I knew it had no tuner when I bought it, and I have been watching TV through a Happauge TV tuner card that I had from before I bought the display. That has worked well enough, but the picture is pretty poor, and I want something better.
My campus offers free cable TV to all dorms, and they also offer networks such as NBC, CBS, and ABC in HDTV through the cable coax hookup. I want to buy an external tuner that can take advantage of these HD channels as well as the normal SD channels. I've done some research on my own, but I really don't know what I should be looking for. I do know that I am not interested in buying an OTA HD tuner; it would be way too hard to try to get reception in a dorm like mine.
Can someone point me in the right direction? Thank you very much for reading!
