But be aware that your cable company may not put the content on your cable connection or require play through their cable box which would stop this from being a solution.
You didn't reveal what laptop and why you didn't go with Hauppaugge. but if it's an older Vista laptop and price is an issue try http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/expired-deals/997201/
Hey guys, I wanted to know what the best way to go about watching tv on my laptop is.
Basically, what I want to do now that baseball season is on, is be able to play video games while also having the baseball game on. I used to do it with my old desktop cause it had a tuner card with a/v inputs but the laptop doesn't have that.
Would the below work? I'm assuming I would just connect this to the back of the cable box and plug it into the usb port on my cpu?
