wen i bought my laptop i received an ariel for the option of watching tv on my laptop. i've got a bit of spare money and am now looking for a tv tuner card to go with it. any recommendations?

If you need help with choosing between a hybrid (as I have mentioned), or just digital (as Stuartli has mentioned) let us know.
yeah, what's the differences and advantages/disadvantages of each?my main reason for getting one is to record tv programmes onto my laptop when i'm out
With the digital one, you'll be able to pick up the Freeview channels.I use an digital/analogue one because I can then record programmes from my Sky+ box.The Sky box outputs an analogue signal from one of the RF outputs. This (using a standard co-ax cable) is linked into my K-World stick, which in turn is plugged into my laptop for recording.
I brought a Freecom USB stick click here£30 Very good as long as you link to a fixed ariel - supplied one ok if you are in a goos area.Advantage - use it my desktop PC portable to my son's laptop, no need to fit internally.FreeviewCheapRecords programmes finePlug in & goRecommendedHXP
oh cool, thanks ArrGee. i'll probably get a digital one then; it's between the Freecom and K-World stick
Just to make sure that it's all clear, the digital one is just digital, whereas the hybrid one is both digital and analogue.
I have a Twinhan Freeview DVB-ter D+A (Digital + Analogue) TV card, but it's a PCI version...:-)As the five analogue channels are also available on Freeview the reason I got the D+A version was because it is able to input signals from a VCR, games console etc if necessary.I appreciate that the KWorld model you mentioned is also this type but, unless prycey requires these facilities, there's no sense in paying twice as much...:-)PSI've seen the Freecom (actually a rebadged product from another company whose name begins with Y, but I can't remember the full name off-hand) at between £20 and £25 at some online outlets.
