An ATSC HD tuner for an HD plasma monitor

by BRISK495 / March 19, 2007 7:49 AM PDT

I wanted to see what a good HD tuner would be for an HD plasma monitor. I saw the HUMAX ATSC tuner...but I also saw others. SOme are alot more then others. I am getting a monitor soon and it doesn not have a tuner installed. What do people recommend? I was looking for a tuner to just display som local HD channels vs getting HD cable (it isnt available to me in my apartment yet anyway) Also, I see som eof the tuners are more and may have other features...I wouldnt mind paying the money for a tuner/DVD player/digital recorder if this is something I will have for a very long time...Thanks for your help in advance!!

are you buying a monitor if you want a digital tuner? It would be a lot cheaper to buy a TV with a built in tuner than to use an add-on. Or, are you talking about a computor monitor that you want to watch TV on? If so, you could buy a tuner card for your computer.

In reply to: Why..

i bought a professional panosonic plasma and the picture performs better then regular consumer models. also, this will be be kind of a temporary solution unil i move into a house....if a tuner is 50- 100 ucks, i dont think it will be a big deal because when imove i wont have cable for awhile...since i will be working on my house. those fw months will pay for this tuner....even if there is a tuner upscaling dvd player that performs well, that ill be worth it to me too

Also dish will give you all the network hi-def channels for free good day steweeeeeeeeeeeeee

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
