Hi

In device manager I've got "nVidia WDM TVTuner" listed. Does this mean I have a TV Tuner card? If so, how am I able to watch TV on my PC?

Thanks
Mike

Chances are your video card supports video in, meaning it can capture video outputted from a TV, VCR, DVD, Video Camera etc, but its not capable of interpreting a VHF/UHF signal, thus would need a TV/VCR to "tune" the signal and then output to the PC.

There are very very few nVidia graphics cards that have integrated TV Tuners.

Certain things like my AGP Ti4200 have ViVo... never used it though, but I believe nVidia have never actually "tuned" TV, as mentioned :)

My nVidia card has ViVo and shows a "nVidia WDM TVTuner", but it just signifies "TV in" as in video capture capability.

It does not signify a TV tuner is included.
