HAs anyone got any experience with these and what to expect. Are they good? Is the TV "Blocky" (i.e. any resolution issues)? I have win XP, 2gb ram, radeon graphics card (i.e. its not a bad spec for a laptop).
Thanks in advance
(any other recommendations for a TV tuner welcome)
Sorry about that, wrong key pressed... I was going on to say:
I don't have personal experience of these but there's a number of recent thread responses from people saying they're generally OK, but the position of the stick aerial supplied can be quite critical. A few cm either way can make the difference between reasonable reception, or 'blocky' - or nothing at all.
By far the best solution is to couple from an outdoor aerial.
Maplin seem to have a reasonable choice of alternatives, click here. HTH.
But as we certainly ain't experts, and as it's a completely new topic, can I perhaps suggest that you close this one (tick) and start a new thread titled (say) "Connecting laptop screen to desktop PC". That may get more replies from people who might miss the follow-on query in this thread. HTH and good luck.
I don't want to hijack this thread, but can I ask a question about TVs with VGA/PC connection sockets? If you connect a TV up to a PC, is the disply then limited to the TV's resolution of (say) 768x576 pixels, or can the TV show a much higher-res PC display such as 1280x1024 pixels? And if so, do you have to 'scroll' around the display? TIA.
TV can only show its resolution. that is why TVs were hopeless as monitors ubtil the new breed of HD tvs came in. I doubt if any TVs of low resolution have VGA/PC connections but perhaps some very small ones do.
