Question
Assuming I have a blu ray drive and high definition television tuner card on my computer,would I need to install a graphics card  to perform the following tasks: capture high def. video at 720p and 1080i/p; encode high def. video at 720p and 1080i/p; play a high def 720p and 1080i/p video file; play a high definition 720p and 1080i/p television channel; play a blu ray disc?

Answer
Dear Steve,

Yes you need install the graphics card for performing all these tasks on computer because high definition television tuner card can't perform all these tasks but it can perform some of the tasks i.e. play a high definition 720p and 1080i/p television channel .
