I was going to buy a digital tv tuner (the ALDI one!) for my PC tomorrow, in order to view Freeview. After a conversation with a work colleague, though, I realised I'd left the aerial out of my plans!
So, if I buy and install the tuner, get the remote control working (USB? I don't know....), what about the aerial? Do I need to use a full size one, or can I just swipe one off a portable tv and use that?
I have a full size elderly tv set in use about ten feet away from my PC, with it's aerial in the loft. Could I somehow make use of this, but use the tv set at the same time?
Any advice appreciated!
Btw, yes, I originally posted this topic in the Absolute Beginners forum, but it appears to be deserted.......
