The input not supported typically describes the frequency at which the computer is trying to send the images to the monitor. Depending on your o/s it normall detects the correct format when loading, but if you just plug it in while it is on, it may try to send the same frequency as the previously plugged in monitor.

Try turning the pc off... then plug in the monitor you want, then turn the pc on, if this doesnt work let me know.

Hi, I have buy a Frontech External TV Tuner card. On connecting to my LCD monitor (AOC) the monitor displays "Input Not Supported", but if my computer is running fine from the card (as manual...

TV tuner cards receive an input. Your monitor should still be connected to your computer using the VGA/DVI/HDMI output. The software for the TV Tuner should take the input from the external cards input and output it to your monitor like any other desktop application.
If your Monitor is giving you input not supported from your standard video output then you may have your resolution set to high,or the monitor frequency set too high (max of 60hz typically for LCD)

      Compare internal and external TV tuners that are designed for use with computers. See if the tuner supports HD, DVI, component video, S-video, stereo, surround sound or other features you might like to use. Ensure that any internal devices will work with the expansion slots in your computer.

    • 2

      Purchase a regular TV tuner if your monitor has S-video, coaxial or RCA inputs. These can be seen at the back of the monitor. S-video should be clearly marked; coaxial is a large round port, and RCA inputs are typically smaller and brightly colored. If your monitor does not have these inputs, purchase a special TV tuner designed just for computer monitors. If you would like to use the tuner with your computer and monitor, choose an internal TV tuner. If you're using your computer monitor as a television on its own, select a stand-alone external tuner. Install the internal TV in your computer, if applicable.

    • 3

      Connect the TV tuner to the monitor with the proper cable. Select S-video as the connection option if both your tuner and monitor support it. Choose RCA component video as your next option. Use coaxial only if your monitor and tuner do not have the aforementioned connections. If your monitor has none of these connections, use a standard VGA cable to connect the tuner and monitor.

    • 4

      Connect the tuner's audio outputs to your monitor's speakers. If your monitor has no speakers directly attached, connect external speakers to the TV tuner. This can usually be achieved using regular audio or RCA cable.

    • 5

      Install an HD antenna high on a wall if you will be picking up free over-the-air television signals with your monitor. If you will be using satellite or cable TV with your monitor, simply plug the satellite or cable set top box into the tuner using RCA or coaxial cables. Then connect the tuner directly to the monitor.

    • 6

      Set your tuner to the channel you use to pick up television stations. If you receive free over-the-air television, this channel will be 3 or 4. If you have satellite or cable TV, this station is determined by your television service provider. Check the documentation that came with your system to determine which channel to set the tuner on. You will probably need to change channels using the satellite or cable box rather than the TV tuner.

It shows out of ramge becuase the video resolution beeing fed to the monitor is too high for the monitor to display, you should set the source video resoltion to be at the native resolution of the monitor.

My monitor doesn't display anything, though it's receiving input from the CPU. I know that input is being received because the monitor status light is green, and times out (turns orange).

Same thing happened to me! Went to bed last night, everything was fine. Woke up today, orange light came on, no display, slight flickering seen, but that's it. Cables and cords are fine, tried unplugging and plugging it back in, NOTHING. Totally dead. I'm guess off to buy a new one today. Typical made-in-China JUNK.

Tv tuner card is not supporting with lcd monior

I think that would be the other way around. You need to replace it with a card that supports LCD monitor.

The intex it 3488 tv tuner has known compatibility problems with this particular Acer monitor: see here.

If the tuner card is new see if you can get a refund, by claiming it as faulty, after all this is a factory fault.
