    First of all you'll need a TV card,externals are good,my guess.
    Then it's easy.

    you have to use a "External Tv card" & "Avermedia" is best.But it's depending on your Monitor (CRT,LCD,LED/HD)

    You know most of the times,TV cards don't serve long,as far as I heard.
    They are like 1500~4500 takas ,internals are cheap,externals are good and pricey.
    Hit the market to know more.
