I have seen reference to a PCMCIA TV card and wondered what it consists of. I have 2 spare slots on my Toshiba Satellite Laptop, can I just buy one,(from where)and stick it in, install driver and will it have a TV antenna socket? Do I need software or will Windows Media Player be OK. I can see the TX antenna from my home and even get a rough signal on my TV just by touching the antenna input so I don't envisage any problems with an indoor antenna linkes to it.

Thanks, Russell.

Thanks Stallion, Sorry but there is no mention of the product I refer to, which is a PCMCIA card, only PCI internal, for desktop, or USB. I know uSB will work but was specifically interested in the PCMCIA card. Thank anyway.

Thanks to all of you who replied to my query. I have got the answer I needed and after a bit of Googling I find Maplin sell the very thing I am looking for. I have a Maplin discount so it works out at a reasonable price for a novelty toy. It's my office so I can do what I want Hi Hi.
