Well, do you have the External TV tuner card?

If so, the instruictions should tell you how alot better than I can. but if you need help. try this.

Install any CD or drivers that came with the Tuner card, the drivers may be pre-installed witht he windows and may not need to be installed. you will know cuz when you hook it to the laptop, it will either auto detect or ask you to install.

Once you do that, you need to plug your T.V's out put siganl cables ( RCA A/V cables typically) into the Tuner card.

Then you need to open the program that manages the T.V. tuner card and go through and set it up to detect the dignal from the T.V. and there you go. There should be an option to Play, record, whatver, depending on the software.


AVERMEDIA.com makes T.V. Tuner cards that are plugged into the mini PCI ports and are good at tuning chanels and radio and allowing you to record straight from the cable signal without using a T.V. at all.

It just deoebds on if you have the right equipment.

If you can, take pictures of what you have and post them and we can try if the above doesnt help.

Good luck

This link will give you an example of what you need to get in order to do that. The S-video port on your laptop is for output, you need something to capture a video signal:
