View Full Version : Internal vs. USB TV Tuner

07-22-2007, 09:56 AM
Hey I am looking at laptops, specifically the sager 5790 and asus g1s, but I am going to want to use my laptop for a lot of tv watching/recording. Haven't done this much but I think you can just use the Media Center in vista, all you need is a connection to the TV or antenna? I'm just wondering if anyone has personal experience using either internal or USB tv tuners to see what would work the best. Thanks for any help.

You are correct, you can use Media Center or the software that is provided with the TV Tuner to do all your recoding needs :D A Internal Card is usually more convenient to use but both will record TV the same way. :)

Let us know if you have any other questions. :D

So is there any difference in quality of video or recording video to the hard drive?

No, they would record in the same quality when recording to the hard drive.
