"Do I need a cable decoder box or can I watch it on my HD digital ready TV?"
The TV in my home office is defunct. I would like to find a way to watch cable TV on my HP NC6000 laptop. I had something similar in my desktop, which now is defunct as well, and it let me watch TV on a small window regardless of what app (word processing, spreadsheet, etc.) I was using. I was wondering if a USB TV tuner would work in a similar way.
Something like this:
KWorld USB ATSC TV Stick (UB435-Q) - ATSC HDTV / QAM receiver - Hi-Speed USB - External
If not this one, can someone suggest another? I would like to spend about $25.00. Is that possible?
OS is Windows XP. I also have a Windows 7 netbook, so I'd like a tuner that would work with both.
