Can anyone recommend a TV Tuner for a notebook. Also will all TV Tuner cards fit any notebook.

No TV card will fit a notebook, assuming you have USB, you need an external device like this click here

Thanks for your response Belatucadrus.

I'm looking at purchasing a Mesh Power View 17.1" Notebook.

An 'Optional Module' is offered and this is a TV Tuner Device with remote control for an extra £99.

I had assumed that it would be an internal device, but obviously not.

I can get an external device for half that price as you have shown me.

Many thanks.

Think I can help you here. I have been using a Hauppauge WinTV USB tuner for about a year, it's a great bit of kit although the teletext is a bit "iffy" sometimes but may be down to signal strength. Works great with laptop and I also use it to transfer analogue video from camcorder to pc for editing and saving on CD. click here

Sorry Belatucadrus,had to take a phone call while preparing thread, see you pointed Shirgles down the same route.

SHIRGLES looking at the website click here it says the Powerview 17 has a subwoofer that is "interchangable with optional TV tuner and optional 6-in-1 card reader". So it appears in this case I was wrong, the Mesh TV tuner is internal, but also appears to be a specialised custom module that may even be unique to Mesh.

Thank you Belatucadrus and Al94 for your input.
