    I'm sure some of you have hooked you computer to the tv with a line from you video card. Is it something worth investing in? How would you rate the quality?

    The only reason i ever did use a TV tuner was to record the occasional TV show without having to spend the money on an applicance that is otherwise utterly useless .. the quality depends on the source and how you finally process the source videoo :)

    your answer sounds like the opposite of what I want to do. I don't want to watch tv on the computer. I want to see my computer on my tv.

    I have a Leadtek GeForce FX5600 256MB with VIVO.
    I had connected my PC screen to a 25" Sony TV and I used the nView clone function through the nVidia drivers.
    I adjusted the TV to 640x480 resolution (that was the highest resolution the TV supported).
    The words and generally texts on the TV screen blurry small and very hard to read. But the images where awsome!!! I saw a movie in DivX codec that looked like a
    DVD quality!!! And the best part is tring a game!!! Any game on a good PC monitor would look much clearer than the TV, but think how would it be to play on a 25" screen and have the same quality a monitor would have on a quarter screen of 1024x768 resolution. It really worths trying it!!! Hope I helped. Sorry for my english.
