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:

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.
