Stupid TV question. Has no tuner.....will cable TV work?

looking at buying a TV under $1k. Seeing some good deals in the 60 inch Vizio's, but they are "displays". Meaning they have no tuner. Can I still plug in my xfinity X1 box???

Yes. In fact, you dont use the tuner that would be in a TV when you connect a cable box.

As long as you have the input needed to connect to the output of the cable box.

ie HDMI or Component

There are no stupid questions. Well, maybe that one.

An old friend gave me a Vizio ~3 years ago when he retired and closed his office on our floor. I think it's a 36"-38" or so, I installed it in my break room. Don't know how long he had it before we got it, but it works and looks just fine. On a sample of one, I give the brand my highest recommendation.

I have seen some decent looking Vizio TVs.

Good bang for buck if you like the picture.
