Sky on my PC monitor

Hi,

Slightly different query to my last one.

I have got normal Sky television being transferred from the box by standard tv cabling to a TV in the bedroom using a splitter.

I want to view this on my PC monitor instead of the TV. Is there a converter from arial cable to VGA/DVI. Or a PC card that will take the signal in and allow it to be viewed on screen from windows.

If you mean a cable from the Sky digibox RF2 output, then you need an anlaogue PC tuner card; these certainly used to exist.

They come with software and there's also used to be some freeware about that supports multiple cards , chipsets and tuners.
Since the advent of digital TV, you might be pushed to find one though.
I haven't tried Googling for them and stopped using mine 5 years ago.

Whilst you may be difficult to find an analogue only card, there appear to be plenty of analogue/DVB-T cards available

I would personally go for a USB stick tuner. No having to get inside the PC and easily transferrable between PC's/Laptops.

I assume that all of these options will have an input socket for a standard arial input and are capable of scanning for the freq that the sky is coming via?

I have the Hauppage WinTV HVR 900H and it works brilliantly and seamlessly with Windows Media Centre. With the PVR capability it is just like having a Freeview PVR.
