What's on that cable can now be on channels that are in the clear or in HD. You may want to try a normal TV first to see if that will do. Many TVs have HDMI and VGA inputs that your laptop may have. But details are sparse here.
Nod to a HDTV and not a monitor.
I live in a small apartment and have a small screen laptop so I was looking to buy a monitor to use with my laptop. However my building provides cable tv from a coaxial plug on the wall, and I wanted to be able to watch a little tv once in a while but do not want to buy a tv just for that. So I wanted to know if there is any option to be able to connect the Cable signal from the coaxial plug to the monitor and use it to watch tv as well.
Thank you all.
