Hey all!

Is there a device that I can get that will enable me to have TV on my laptop without having to plug any cables in. I want it to have a built-in aerial so that I can pick up a TV signal as I travel.

A cardbus solution would be best, but a USB solution would still suit my needs. I only intend to pick up analog signals (channels 1-4) but if it had support for digital signals too would be great.

Can anyone recommend anything?

Thanks,
Jamie.

Be aware that all TV depends on a good signal and that in practice "built-in" and "portable" aerials do not work very well unless you are in the vicinity of a very strong signal. :(


I don't mean to discourage you, but it is a good idea to ask if you can return whatever you purchase if it does not come up to your expectations.:)
