There is already good variety available in the market for Laptop TV devices, with price ranging from Rs. 3000 to Rs. 6000
But what if you get a TV device for laptop for only of Rs. 1600 to 1800 with same result like you was supposed to get on the expensive device.
Yes, this device is known as Smart USB 2.0 LAPTOP TV Device (on hardware chip it is known as Sinovideo TV tuner or SV3200 Sabrent Device) and it is manufactured in China PRC. This device offers you complete range of channels to surf on your cable and also with PAL-BG support for local TV standards. USB 2.0 LAPTOP TV device is almost of the size of a normal USB Modem with 3 connecters on the right and back, these are AUDIO in, AUDIO OUT, S-Video on the right and with RF on the back. The Design of the device is almost sleek and can be easily carried in the laptop bag for surfing channels anywhere in hotel or anywhere in the hostel.
The box came with the USB 2.0 has stereo cable, CD, manual and Infrared Remote. The important thing about CD is that it is loaded with WIN DVR 3.0 Version and in some CD’s it is also known as Win PVR (definitely a crack copy of the software). By using this software you can even capture your TV recordings in DVD format as well.
On the other hand, it is worth buying device, but one flaw could be that this device is not fully compatible with Vista i.e. it only tune 50 channels on vista.
