    Hey guys,

    I'm a student and I have my own student room. I own a macbook pro and I have in my student room analog tv available, I also own a LCD screen BUT without a COAX input. So I was wondering If it is possible to link COAX to my macbook and stream the video through HDMI on my LCD screen (which has HDMI). So without buying a tv...

    Hope this makes sense?

    Thanks in advance

    Don't even bother, you'd have to go through a capture card and quality would be horrendous, and the image would be late compared to the sound.

    You'd also end up paying more in the end than getting yourself a cheap TV.
