    I have the above video card. I've never had any interest in watching TV on
    my computer but that might change :) With this vid card, what else do I
    need for tv broadcast?

    This card does nothing for watching TV. It allows you to display your
    computer ON your TV. At lousy resolution. I do, but only for playing shows
    I've recorded or DVDs.

    To watch TV, you need a TV tuner. I have three, as I like to be able to
    record multiple channels. One controls my cable box and the other two are
    on standard cable.

    My personal preference is the Hauppauge WinTV-PVR USB2 :


    I use it in conjunction with Snapstream's BeyondTV:


    Basically it is TIVO on my PC without monthly fees. Amazing power.
