...is a confusing one.
Cable TV goes to TV, Cable Internet goes to PC, PC goes to HDTV....far too many cables, but let's give this a try.
You have cable TV, and cable internet for PC, and you'd like to know if your PC can pass the TV through the PC, so you don't have to keep swapping plugs behind the TV? Close enough?
The problem here is cable is only a wire. A PC even using cable internet is still not a cable TV receiver. Just because TV and internet come down the same cable does not make them compatible with each other. So you need a PC TV card that can accpet cable TV input.
1. Cable Internet goes to PC
2. Cable TV goes to PC TV card (make sure you buy one that has input for cable TV) and may require a cable splitter to make two wires. Your cable provider will advise.
3. PC goes to HDTV
....and there you have it. PC can now surf and watch TV, and display on your HDTV.
