Digital Tuner Help

by jojojo8888 / August 4, 2007 4:59 AM PDT

Hello, I'm new to this forum and I need some quick help. I apologize if this is just a repeat of another post.

If I have a T.V. with a digital tuner, is it/will it be required that any DVD recorder that I plan on using with the T.V. have a digital tuner also?
I am curious because I plan on buying a DVD recorder, and I wasn't sure if I needed one with a digital tuner or not.
Thanks in advance.

If you want to record over the air with an antenna, you will need a digital tuner.

If you want to record off your cable or sat box or DVR, all you need are the composite or s-video inputs.

Keep in mind, you can not record in HiDef or in 5.1 audio no matter the tuner.

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?
