Here's the deal I bought a 30" LCD TFT Monitor that has the following inputs: S-Video, RCA/composite, RGB component, VGA and DVI. The monitor doesn't have a TV tuner and I don't want to use it through a PC (want to have it act like a TV). What I've been thinking about recently is purchasing something like a Direct TV/Dishnetwork box, just to hook up to and use as a tv tuner instead of going through the cable company (I think it's like a $5 per month fee). I have cable and I will be moving in about 1 month (college student).
Here's the user's manual online (if it helps):
So the questions:
1. Is it even possible to buy something like this:
and hooking it up w/o subscribing to it?
2. If question one is yes any recommendations on what to buy?
3. Do you guys have any other ideas?
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?
