TV capture on Laptop

Is it possible to take the output from my Sky Digibox and display it on a laptop ?

If so which output from the Skybox and what card/dongle do I need installed in (or on) a laptop.

A USB TV tuner card available online or in stores like PC World will allow you to route Sky to the laptop.

Another option is adevice called Slingbox which routes your Sky TV through a router and allows you to access your TV via the internet anywhere you can log on. ie through a wireless network. click here

Hope this helps

Thanks Dizzy Bob,

I had assumed it would be relatively easy to do but us septegenerians love to make things difficult !
Off now to be "sold" the answer by those "clever people" at PC World.
