As this is a HD Monitor, it should be possible to run a HD TV card, however, what should be and what is are two different things.

As most of the HD TV monitors appear to be external, there should (??) be no problem, but no guarantees.

Having tried so many examples of TV cards in PCs I had almost given up getting a good reliable one. However I have been absolutely delighted with the performance of the TBS cards. I have dual HD with both a Sat card and a Freeview card. Simple to install and excellent quality of picture. I would not look anywhere else now and intend to fit another one of each to add recording capability TBS model numbers 6981 and TBS 6284 refer. Not cheap but very high quality and well worth the moolah.
