There have been many threads on the forum asking whether tv can be watched on a laptop or computer and there have been different answers. But apparently you can get high quality tv programs on your laptop or computer with a different kind of tv tuner card.
For those who do not know a TV tuner card is a component which allows your laptop or computer to receive television signals. There are four different TV tuner cards, analog tv tuners, hybrid tv tuners, digital tv tuners and combo tv tuners, and the difference in all of these is that they all give different qualities and video outputs.
One of the most efficient and we can say the best tv tuner card is from Pinnacle Systems. The tv tuner cards provided by Pinnacle Systems range from Rs400 to Rs10000 and the difference is in the features and quality. Obviously the higher the price the better the quality there will be in watching tv on your laptop or computer. Not only this the higher priced tv tuner cards also work as video capture cards which allow you to record television shows. The videos are recorded in MPEG1, MPEG2, AVI and also Divx formats.
