TV Tuner Cards...

Home  \  Off Topic  \  TV Tuner Cards...

Thinking about getting one, but I know next to nothing about them. I've done some research and from what I understand, since it'll be for a laptop, it pretty much has to be an external USB one. Where I get confused is what does it pick up (satellite signals or cable signals or whatever without being plugged into a jack)? Also, would I be able to pick up HD signals supposing I didn't have to pay anything past the cost of the video cards? Any input is appreciated!

I've been looking around and saw something about express cards, but I think they only get analog signals...

Very good, small capture device. Coworker bought it and is very pleased. IF you have free to air Hd you just get a antenna (~$10) nd you can pull the signal, otherwise plug cable in
