VIsta Media Center and Comcast Digital

Hi.
I just got a new HP media center with 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT DVI-I, HDMI.
I also have comcast HD digital setup box.
I connected the setup box to the svideo in plug in the media center. Although I can watch TV, the signal is definitly not HD quality. When I switch back to watch it through component directly to the TV I get the HD quality of the channels.

Anyone know hw to connect media center pc to comcast HD digital service?

Nechmads,
The s video connection is not a digital signal, it is analog.
This should help you get what you need to set it up.

I am replacing my NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT Graphics card from my HP Media Center m8400f computer with a new NVIDIA GeForce GT 430 card. I have done this before and from what I have seen it is really...


If it is connected it will come loose. I believe it is for the cooling fan on the card. Be careful with pulling it out it is just a two part deal. You may pull the plug but it will also come off maybe in two pieces or one whole piece. Whichever it will come off. Give it some pulling. John

How can I view my pc on tv using an hdmi cable and a comcast digital cable box? My tv does not have an hdmi input.


The hdmi port on the Comcast box is an output only and cannot be used as an input from the general public. If your tv has a DVI output, there are DVI to HDMI adapters that can make the hook up....other than that, there is the super video cable but you will still have to run audio through a seperate line.
