have vista & want to set up windows media centre to view online tv when I click on setup tv it tells me I have no tuner hardware, is there a free download or would I have to buy it and if so could someone point me in the right direction of what I need to purchase. Have had a look on google and gather I can have an external tuner but would need suggestions as what to get please.

thanks

Hi

You'll need to get a TV tuner card which fits into a spare PCI slot on your motherboard. I just bought a Kworld PCI hybrid TV card which tunes in to both analogue and digital signals. If you have a decent digital airiel then you can just plug it into the back of the card and off you go
