To Watch TV on a PC. Any Ideas How? by Swish(m): 2:00am On Nov 28, 2005
Just wanted to find out if you have any ideas on Vga cards for watching Tv on a Pc. I don't mean internet tv but like using your PC as a TV set.

Someone said he wants to watch TV on his laptop. Get a USB tuner box.
Re: To Watch TV on a PC. Any Ideas How? by Omega2(m): 1:16am On Mar 02, 2006
you guys av said it all, you are all pretty right. Almost nothing is impossible when it comes to computer, the fact that one doesn't know the way round it doesn't mean it isn't possible. just ask a couple of guyz, u'll be suprised. you can watch anything watcheable on earth anywhere, lappy, notebook or even the monter on your table, but not 486 or p1 sha.
