You will need a tv tuner dongle that plugs into the usb port. These are available from all good PC stores. They do these for all formats of TV so you would be able get one that decodes cable and you would have the added benefit of being able to use your laptop as a PVR so you can record your favourite programs straight to your laptop.

If you have a cable box and can set your TV to channel 3 then you should be able to watch cable. If you want to watch over the air broadcasts then you need a digital converter box which you can buy at Best Buy for around 40 dollars. You use the converter box as the tuner and set your TV on channel 3.

Hi

TV tuner cards allow you to view programming on a computer system. Although desktop computers allow you to install internal TV tuner cards, laptop systems do not have the available space for internal cards. Because of this, laptop computers have PCI express card slots. This slot allows you to install and remove (at your will) additional hardware, such as TV tuner cards.

  • TV tuner card
  • Driver installation CD
  • Software installation


  1. Locate the PCI express card slot (located on the side of your computer opposite the disc drive). Push in on the protective cover on the slot to unlock it from the case. It pops out slightly, allowing you to remove the card.
  2. Slide in the TV tuner into the PCI express card slot. The card clicks into place and a light blinks on when the card has connected successfully to the laptop computer.
  3. Insert the driver installation CD into the disc drive of the computer. Momentarily a driver installation wizard appears on the screen. Click "Next" on the welcome page, then accept the given license agreement. Choose "Next" two more times, then select "Install" and the drivers from the driver installation CD install onto the computer.
  4. Eject the driver installation CD and insert the software installation CD. This is the program you use to view the connected receiver. As with the driver installation CD, wait for the installation wizard to load up onto the screen. Accept the license agreement, leave the installation name and location blank, then click "Install" to install the software.
  5. Restart the computer. Upon restart the laptop is ready to begin using the TV tuner card.

MONITOR


You will need a TV Tuner expansion card for your computer. If you buy a TV Tuner expansion card and install it, and connect an antenna or cable TV cable, you will be able to watch TV shows on your computer monitor while using your computer. With some TV tuner cards, you can also record TV for watching it later, or even hook up your VCR and record VHS tapes and home videos to put on DVD. This is a more complicated topic and instructions should come with the TV Tuner expansion card you purchase.

TV tuner cards usually run in the range of $20-75 and will fit in most computers. You can buy them online and at computer or electronics stores. Installation is fairly simple and the instructions and software are included (unless you buy a used one)

Good luck!
