Re: External Tuners

You are quite right. The television displays the stream in 1080i if available in the stream.

By the way, the "SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual HDHR4-2US HD Digital Network Attached TV Tuner Device " is available from NewEgg for less than $89.

Thanks.

Re: External Tuners

Thanks for the tip. That HomeRun thingy looks very interesting. It has all the tuner capabilities one would want as well as HD 1080i. Not too bad for retaiil $129.

Thanks again.

Re: External Tuners

Thanks for the reply.

It appears that there are only a few USB devices. Only Hauppauge and OnAir are covering all the bases with ATSC by 8VSB, QAM and NTSC , and OnAir seems to be out of business (or at least AutumnWave is).

Is USB fast enough for all HD video streams?

External Tuners

Are there external tuners that will work with portable computers to allow the computer to be the DVR?

Thanks.
