    I have a spiffy new 30" Samsung 305t, and I'd like to watch TV on it as well, and maybe play Wii or something. I found some HDTV tuners, but they won't accept HD sources (which defeats the purpose if I use an HDTV cable box). I'd prefer an internal device to external, and firewire to USB. But if it works well, I don't really care.

    It's for a Mac Pro 2.8ghz 8-core.

    Ideas?

    If you just want to watch it on the monitor you should just be able to connect the monitor directly to your HD cable box or other device with an appropriate cable and maybe a switch. Check out this thread http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=3161206

    Hauppauge HD-PVR & Myth-TV. I haven't tried it, but it should work.
