monitor question (tv tuning) - solved

Had my eye on a computer with a pvr, and when I was shopping about for a monitor, I noticed in the specs that it said TV tunner: No

Up to this point I had thought that you'd put your cable pick up into the tower and the monitor is going to play whatever/whenever. Now I'm not so sure. Do I need a specific type of monitor to utilize the pvr features in the computer?

edit: solved. thanks :)

    No. Monitors with tv tuners are just that, monitors with tv tuners. You can watch tv on them without having the computer on. For pvr functionality, you don't need one with it.
