I work on a cruise ship and I receive a number of crew TV channels into my cabin via a standard coax lead, which would usually connect to the supplied TV units.
I want to somehow get this signal into my laptop and thus watch/record certain shows, etc. On my older XP laptop, I did this using a Hp ExpressCard Digital/Analog tuner. Now I want to be able to do this via USB, as I have no ExpressCard interface on my new laptop (Asus N71/8GB RAM/Win 7x64)
I’ve been looking at some of the ‘USB stick’ freeview receivers/tuners and it seems that some of them have a hole in the end which looks like it could be a coax input; or is this just an input for the supplied aerial?
Would a coax lead plugged into here allow the tuner to scan all the crew channels, or would it be looking for freeview on specified channels only?
Hoping you can help,
