Wireless connection to tv tuner?

by baseballman56 / March 3, 2006 8:09 AM PST

I'm wondering if it's possible to hook up a tv tuner to my laptop wirelessly? I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron E1705 and the ATI TV Wonder USB TV Tuner. I would like to be able to watch and record TV on my laptop without having it physically connected to the TV tuner. Is this even possible? Also, does anyone know how this would work with Dish Network?
