I just recevied my 8790 several days ago and it's working like a charm(save for the enormous quantity of heat it's speeding up global warming with), but I'm a little confused about the TV Tuner. Here's my situation: I'm moving into a dorm room at college that provides Cable TV via coaxial cable. Of course, the 8790 doesn't have that - it has an S-Video and an RCA input. So, without buying some external USB TV Tuner(the 8790 is supposed to perform this function via the tuner card), how can I not only recevie the video input, but changer the channels, and in short, use my laptop as a substitute television. If this is not possible - then is "TV Tuner" a misnomer. Any help would be well--helpful! Thanks!
