Hello

Welcome

Thanks for the Question

Its a computer monitor it does not have a tuner you would need to get a card with the ability to utilise a tuner and other inputs however that card is not available any more.

You could use the DVI input get a set-top-box then a converter to change the output of the box to DVI .....its all getting rather messy

Sorry for this dismal news

A positive rating is appreciated thank you

Regards

Anthony
