HGMI or DVI cable and Cable card

by scasassa / February 13, 2006 6:46 AM PST

I just purchased a Panasonic HDPD TH-50PM and a Monster 400 for HDMI cable. I have the TV hooked up to HD box from Cox cable. What are the benefits with a Cable card vs. the HD box and can I find a DVI or HDMI cable for less than 135.00 I just spent? I am so confused. Your response is greatly appreciated.

CABLE CARD

A CABLE CARD ONLY HAS A "ONE WAY" COMMUNICATION CAPABILITY. IT WILL NOT WORK FOR INTER-ACTIVE FEATURES SUCH AS PAY-PER VIEW MOVIES. THE CARD IS SIMPLY PROGRAM WITH THE PARTICULAR PROGRAM PACKAGE YOU CHOOSE AND WORKS IN PLACE OF THE CABLE BOX.

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?
