Help with tv on my computer
Hi to everyone.
I've just registered here and this is my first post. I need some help on purchasing some hardware that will enable me to view tv on my computer. My computer is a dell laptop (2.6gig pentium, 512MB ram). What I want to be able to do is to put my laptop by my television set, remove the arial lead from the tv and insert it into a usb tv device, so that I can record tv programs to my hard drive.
I have satellite tv (UK SKY digital - not sure if that's relevant). I don't need anything that will tune the tv channels, I'll be using the digital box that sits under the television for that, all I need is some hardware that will allow me to move the output cable of the digital tv tuner from the tv to a usb device, which will enable me to watch/record tv programs, with no loss of quality.
I'm confused as to what I should be looking for. I've had a search on Ebay and found lots of different products, but the amount of choice and the wide price range has convinced me that I need to seek some advice.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
