You can watch TV through your computer... Don't know about using a monitor as a TV...

you can, if your vid card has a S-video or RCA out plug. I did it before but the graphics, and color look kind of distorted.

If you want to watch TV shows on your PC, yes you can do it. As referenced by Jolancer, you can buy a PCI TV tuner card. Depending on the quality of the graphics and TV tuner card, it might be worthwhile if you don't have a regular TV to watch.

Also Cheano, I think I speak for our members here in saying that we would appreciate it if you refrain from posting like this in the future. You made 3 posts all within 30 min of each other saying that we don't know our stuff... Whatever man. If i wasn't in a good mood today i would have totally disregarded your ignorant style posting. That style is neither welcomed nor condoned and you certanly won't make any new friends that way.
