First you have to see if your CRT has a connection available that can be used to setup your computer. If your computer has any kind of connection like HDMI, 3port females etc. you can do it using the following steps.

  1. Go and buy a cheap graphics card for your computer.
  2. Plug the graphics card and install the latest driver from the company website.
  3. Once done, grab a cable in accordance with the type of connector available with your CRT.
  4. Connect the cable to both your pc and TV.
  5. Set your TV channel to Video mode and let it there for some time. Start your PC, it will take few seconds to configure the settings and after that you will be good to go and will see a clean display on the CRT TV.

If you want to watch TV right on your computer or simply share whatever your TV is showing onto your computer, you don’t need to modify anything on your system. You just need to attach a hardware called PCTV card on your CPU to transfer the signal from the TV down to your computer.

You can purchase a PCTV card from your local computer store or via online. In case you want to purchase it online, visit KWorld KW-PC134-A PCI Analog TV Card. It costs $25.99. It is PCI type and supports Windows XP Service Pack 3, and 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Vista Service Pack 2 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1.

Another one you can try is the Pinnacle Systems PCI Studio PCTV. It costs only $13.99. Unfortunately, this model is limited only to Windows XP. The package includes the setup CD, audio cable, and the install guide.
