I believe that's how it work. Connect the usb tuner to the laptop and antenna to the antenna input of the tuner then just enjoy your TV. I guess how good the tv channels will be depends on how good a signal that antenna can pick up. Give it a try, I see they are going for less than $100.
But question; what do you mean..."and plugging the cable into the wall"?
I want to be able to watch TV on my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop, so I was considering buying a USB TV Tuner. My laptop runs Windows 7. Does anyone know if this will work on my computer? Is it as simple as connect the TV Tuner to my computer and plugging the cable into the wall? Or is there more to it?
I appreciate any advice you can provide. Thanks.
