    Is there any computer monitor which can also be used as a regular TV (without the use of a tv tuner card, the monitor should have a built-in tuner).

    Or any TV which can be used as computer monitor.

    Any Info..

    Nope without a Video Capture card or a TV Tuner you can't watch TV on your Monitor.But you can do the opposite i.e. use your TV as Monitor using the S-Video out provided by your G-Card.

    To use Monitor as TV buy a Cheap External/Internal TV Tuner Card !!
