Default Built-in HDTV tuner

If I want to use my TV for watching movies, playing PlayStation 3 and for my computer monitor, do I need to buy a TV with a Built-in HDTV tuner ??

no the hdtv tuner is for picking up over the air broadcast channels, like abc nbc , cbs and fox in your area with the tuner being built in you only need an antenna but for all other components you can watch hd right out of the box

Likewise, if you intend to use HD cable or HD satellite service then the external boxes that those companies give you will provide you with your local HD channels, or allow you to hook an antenna up to the box to get your OTA HD channels.

All you need your display to do is act like a PC monitor. You feed it video from different sources (gaming, PC, HD, DVD, VCR, etc.) and it shows it on screen.
