If your Cable TV is analog/unscramble (ie, you can tune it with a modern TV or VCR), all you would do is connect it to a TV card. Better TV cards come with both Composite and S-Video inputs. Most rely on the soundcard for sound input using the Composite or S-Video connector.

If you have to use a cable box due to a scrambled analog signal or digital cable, you don't need a TV-Card with a tuner...there used to be video input cards, mostly used for video conferencing, that were basically TV cards with the tuner removed. You'd input the video FROM S-Video or Composite Video on the cable box, and you'd input the X-Box TO the cable box as a pass-through.

What's an Xbox?

And where would I put the tv/video card in one? :eek:
