FRONTECH tv tuner card - stuck lost - urgent help needed

hi guys friends and buddies........

A good news for me and also a bad news for me (not so bad bcz u poeple r there)

My uncle recently purchased a computer and for some reason he did not like his tuner tv card...

So obviously guess who got it...well me..

(Note I have never seen or used Tv tuner card before in my life)

It had written frontech on it (possibly an Internal TV tuner card) and is now inside my pc....(but has no remote with it)

Also there is one Tv tuner card (which is possibly external tv tuner card) callled frontech JIL 0608 with a remote....along with it it also has a small red cable...

Now I am unable to figure out where to start and how....

ALL i want is to be able to see cable TV on my PC (which is in my room) instead of normal TV which is in common room.

But how do i start and how should i go about it...????????

  1. How do i make a connection from TV ( which has cable connection) to my PC????

  2. In order to see TV on PC which one to use, Internal or External one?????

  3. How do I record programs for later viewing???

  4. I have CD writer/reader on my PC...do i also need DVD writer /reader for recording and how much it costs????

  5. Will having DVD be any better ...

plz take a look at the following thread...
