By janey
HDTV is the technology of the future. It offers much higher resolution and clarity than analog TV and over twice the resolution of DVD. The FCC has mandated that Digital TV (DTV) replace analog TV. Broadcasters in the USA are well on their way to achieving this objective: Over 50% of TV shows and growing are currently broadcast in HDTV; Over 80% of USA households get five or more DTV channels.

Until now, a special TV costing in excess of $1000 was required to receive HDTV (High Definition Television) signals.

If you bought a PC with a flat screen in the past few years, chances are you have HDTV-quality resolution. Wouldn't it be great if you could get hi-def TV on your computer cheaply while saving up for that big-screen HDTV? Actually, you can.

Turn off your computer and unplug the power cable from the wall. Open the PC and look for an empty PCI slot. Before touching the HDTV card, be sure to discharge static electricity by touching a metal surface. Seat the card into the PCI slot and screw down the retaining bracket. Close the computer. (Don't plug it in just yet.)

Different tuner cards offer different connections, but for HD, you'll want to plug your new antenna into the DTV input on the back of the card. Since cable and satellite providers scramble their broadcast streams, no PC tuner card can fully replace a cable box yet. Most tuner cards also have an analog coaxial input jack for cable.

Attach the other end of the wire to the HDTV indoor antenna. Placement of the antenna is essential for a good signal. Place the antenna as high and as close to a window as possible. For optimum accuracy, check what direction the HD signal is coming from in your area. A good Web site for this is

Once everything is hooked up, plug the computer back in, boot up and install the supplied software. (Check your HDTV card manufacturer's Web site for the latest drivers and software updates.) If your card ships with a remote control, be sure to hook up the USB receiver. The DTV software should automatically scan for channels.

HDTV Can Be Taken Outdoor

The above is about watching
desk computer at home, so what if you want to take the HDTV ourdoor to a camping activity to add some more fun? And what if there is some big event happening like the soccer game, but you are just not able to watch them at home? You will feel very sorry to miss those exciting moments again.

Isn’t that amazing?

It’s not something that a computer gadget fan will do. It’s both an economical way and a fashionable way to watch HDTV nowadays, with more function than the traditioanl TV set.

Compare The Image Quality between the TV set and PC

I personaly feel the PC is doing a better job. Now, the most popular PC display size is 22’ in a broad design. It’s really satisfying when wath tv on your computer like this, just like watching DVD 9, or even better. The advertising isn’t that annoying when the image becomes so clear and with gougers color. TV is great too, but I just feel they are a little bigger, and the image quality can’t meet that size standard at this moment. And regarding the resolution part, the traditioanl TV set is certainly lose the battle here. The PC resolution is stronger, bring more clear image for you to enjoy.

Or if you are a big size TV fan, it’s not hard to meet your demand, since there is very large Computer monitor now in the market. You can bring them home with a more cheaper price than buying a same size TV set. Besides, the computer monitor can have more jobs to do, not just for watching TV. So one sward, two birds. Why not?

If you don’t have a very big room, you probobly will find the big TV set unessasary. If not for decoration purpose, the big TV in the hall may be replace by your PC. It’s more practical and ecomomical.

All in one, the PC will simplify your digital life.
