    Some pictures or perhaps a brand name / model number might help someone in assisting you. ;)

    What wires are you referring to? The coax connector goes to the TV signal, hopefully you got that part. :) These cards are pretty simple, what part of the instructions are you not getting?

    How do you watch regular TV? If you have cable, one way to hook it up would be to have a 'Y' connector and run a coax cable to your TV and the other to your TV tuner card.

    HUH? You connect the TV distribution cable to the TV Tuner card, not to your monitor! I think you should read the setup instructions that came with the tuner...:rolleyes:

    The coax is the only wire you need to connect. Did your TV card come with some TV software? Use that to watch TV.

    You need to read the manual completely.
    Most cards will need a driver installed AND some type of software to actually "Watch" TV. This will be included on the CD that came with the card.
    This software will also allow you to record TV shows, capture video from a camcorder, vcr, etc. It may or may not come with some type of video editing app.
