With the HDMI/VGA/DVI ports on the card, does it contain a TV Tuner that will enable the viewing of television signals on the PC monitor? I have an HDMI cable from the decoder to the PC but so far have not been able to use it. There's a 9600GT card in the PC (8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Vista Ultimate 64-bit) because I want to do VHS to HD-DVD video editing. I am less than a novice at this, though, while I have 30+ years experience in the PC industry. Thanks.

Video cards do not come with TV tuners, as there is a separate market for this product. The HDMI/VGA/DVI ports simply allow the user to connect the computer to a HDTV, HD-monitor, or digital/analog monitor.

Oh, so I need a separate TV Tuner (presumably PCI-E) in another slot in the main board? Then the 9600GT in the machine already is sufficient?

That is correct, either a PCI or PCI-E digital tuner card would be ideal, and the 9600GT you have can help output the video.
