Stand alone Tv Tuner

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm in the market for a projector and since i'm probably going to not have a cable box i'll need a stand alone tv tuner.

something like this:

since i'll be hooking up my cd/dvd/xbox360 to a receiver, i'll just be watching tv on it. Tv doesn't have to be HD, but i don't want it to be insanely bad quality.

Any suggetions on what i should do? maybe just use a tuner in a vcr? i dunno Thanks!

Where are you located? That looks like an analog-only tuner, and it is for european standards as well.

Wisconsin/Minnesota (i go to school in Minnesota), and i didn't mean that exact item, just an example of what i'm looking for. Basically a tv tuner that has an output like s-video, composite, etc. to hook up to my projector.

Looking for suggestions of what to get. Thanks

My Sharp does a bad job of upscaling my cable -is there anything I can buy to clean up the image?

basic "extended" cable so theres no box involved... otherwise i would just use the output of that to the projector (which would make things alot easier but i'm in college and can't afford the extra $$ a month for digital) and i'm assuming that OTA means "off the antenna"

maybe i'll ask my roomies if they'd be down with upgrading to digital, either way any suggestions on what i can do?
