Unfortunately I don't have an answer for you, but by replying your thread gets bumped. ;) Hopefully someone here has an answer.
BTW: Welcome to HotHardware and nice sig!!! lol
If your video card has a S-video port, than yes you can use it as a signal for a tv. Just make sure you restart your computer once you have them plugged in, and then launch your video card software (catalyst for ati, or whatever nvidia uses)...and check out the display settings to set everything up.
I think that's what you're asking atleast...if you mean something else or have any questions, drop a reply ^_^.
I do think it is possible but you would have to plug the S-video cable into your cable box. Then use Catalyst or some software to capture the feed. However, I will be honest, doing this is not reccomended and it will be terrible image quality. You would be better just getting a tuner card. That video card is for a laptop right ? You might even be able to get a usb type tv tuner device but even then some digital cable channels may not work. It seems to me to be more trouble than it's worth.
So at last my (n00bish) brain has been laid to rest
BTW...ATi1250 is not for Laptops....the X1200(a stripped down version of X700) is for laptops while X1250 is for Desktops...
