Tech & Gadgets: Turn your PC into an HDTV
Posted by wholeenchilada on November 13, 2007
Too cool! Turn your PC into an HDTV from cnet:
Sure, you could pay iTunes two bucks for every episode of The Office you download to your PC. Or you could add a TV tuner and record unlimited shows — in high def! — free of charge. eCost has the Viore Portable HDTV Tuner for just $55, a steal at twice the price.
Just plug this USB tuner into your desktop or notebook, then connect an analog cable feed or the included ATSC antenna. The latter lets you pull down HD channels right outta thin air (provided you live in a metropolitan area).
Can it be that easy? If so, what a great holiday gift for the gadget and electronic gear lovers in your lives!
