No Video Capture Card??!

by puffarthur / July 16, 2005 3:16 PM PDT

Maybe I am ignorant, but I don't see a Video Capture Card listed as part of the features. Windows Media Center is great, but I think mostly useless if you don't have a video capture card to watch and record tv with...

Am I wrong? Or does this mean people who buy the T6520 will also need to buy a TV Tuner Card?

The Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition is an Opeating System like for instance Windows XP Home or Windows XP Pro, and no one is required to furnish a Tuner, and usually do not do so on low cost computers. Checking the specs for a Tuner, Personal Video Recorder (PVR), remote control, should be on a shoppers check list if he desires, just like checking to see if there is a slot for AGP or PCI-e video card.

Perhaps you may desire to wait for the emachine T6522 that some have purchased in advance at Circuity City and reported that it has a Tuner & Remote for $699 after $50 rebate.

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?
