    I just got a 22'' widescreen LCD, and want to use it as a TV in my dorm. I've been looking for an external TV tuner, and the only one that features 1680x1050 is an Australian model that you can't even get in the US.

    The highest rated tuner is either the AverMedia TVBox9 or 5. The top resolution of these is only 1280x1024.

    Is the video going to look like shit if its only 1280x1024? I will be running the TV tuner directly from the cable to the tuner, with no computer or laptop involed.

    considering that you can't get 1080p resolution over the air, 1280x1024 should be fine
