Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer
or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of
the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the
computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI
card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner
card supports component video.
Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you
want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you
have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the
DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your
computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV.
If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the
"Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the
computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end
of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your
computer in Step 2).
Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer
monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the
screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television
viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the
contents of the TV on your computer.
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.

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
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.
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.
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.
Restart the computer. Upon restart the laptop is ready to begin using the TV tuner card.
If are talking about the Express Card slot into which the ExpressCard TVTuners are installed, it should be located on the Left side of the Notebook.
Please go through page number 18 of 266 in the Manual of the Notebook which is available through the link below which shows you the exact location of the Slot :
By the way, HP no more sells the ExpressCardTV Tuner Cardsin HP Shopping.
Only USB TV Tuner Cards are available from HP.
However, you should be able to find Express Card TV Tuner Cards from other Manufacturers.
you need to install/re-install the drivers for the expresscard, should be downloadable from medion. Also check in control-panel that the device is there. If you look in My Computer/control Panel/System/Device Manager and the device is listed, with a yellow exclamation mark. try removing/uninstalling. or physically remove from the computer, re-install and go through the new hardware wizard to set it up.
This means you can watch and save Programs running in different Channels in your TV, with your Computer. configure your tuner card, just need to install the driver and enjoy. check the link for TV Tuner Installation :

Most brand/models will work for your laptop as long as the correct drivers are installed for the laptop's OS (Vista).
One thing noticeable is slight heat build-up on most PCM CIA cards. On the other hand external TV via USB connection tend not to heat as much and does not load nor draw power from the laptop since they have their own power adapters. Both however will have a lower video quality compared to cable directly connected to TV connection.
There are a number of models from AverMedia which should work straight out. My experience with Leadtek models has also been satisfactory so far.
Hope this be of some help to you. Post back should you need additional information.
good luck and kind regards.
