I was thinking more along the lines of actual picture quality.  I
should have made myself clearer really :-) (no pun intended).  We live
in a very good reception area and the picture quality on my set ttop
digital box is very good.  The one from the digital tv card is quite
poor in comparison and that's using the 'bloody' expensive super duper
digital aerial.  PC monitors just are not meant to show a tv picture
and don't I know it...

I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Take care.
