Hey ppl. I was wondering what kind of graphics card I would need to get for streaming purposes? I want to be able to connect my sky up to my pc in order to stream sky to a few friends using P2P software but don't know what kind of card would be best. I know I'll need a media encorder and stuff for the sky also. Thanks for any help

I wasn't aware that sites that stream media required a video card at all. What made you think you needed this?

I need a tv in option on my pc so that I can connect my sky to it I think?

That wouldn't have to be a graphics card.

Maybe a TV/Caption card but I rarely get a new video card to use that. I'm sure you'll have fun finding all the software but if I was to do this I'd look to Linux's with their wide swath of software. Let's try linuxmce?

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?
