Hello another review from capt.curran, My first TV card was an AverTV Studio 303 and it worked perfectly, I've have tried 3 other Digital TV cards since (not AverTV) but had problems with them. But when I was about just given up on Digital TV cards I thought I try and go back to AverTV and im glad I did. Im just so happy and glad there?s nothing wrong with this card. For the features and the price of this TV card your completely mad not to buy thiContents

To get cable on the pc you will need one of these, SCART to 3 Phono Lead you then connect this to the all-in-one cable.

also if your cable box is down stairs and the PC upstairs then use one of these, AV/Sender, and most av/senders use the SCART to 3 Phono Lead cable.
