    I am looking for an ATSC tuner for use with a computer monitor.

    Anyone have any experience with a device such as this?

    The big issue is that there are not many ATSC tuners around anymore that output HD. I did find this one though:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815260027

    Another thing you could do, if you find another one that has HDMI output, is just use an HDMI -> DVI adapter or cable and then just use the composite audio outputs for audio.

    i use an avermedia hdtv duet
    it works great with windows 7 media center
    if you dont have windows media center it will work with its own software but it is a lousy cumbersome design
    i bought mine at tigerdirect.com

    I think you were not talking about tv tuner cards for your computer. Right?

    I have an LG LST 3510A which has an ATSC/QAM tuner, DVI, VGA, component, and composite outputs, and an up-converting DVD player as well. I doubt they still make them, but you might be able to find one on eBay.

    I ended up getting the KWORLD GRENTZ linked in the above post. Works well for what I wanted.
