Smart TV Device for Laptops

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.

      • Yes it got details, u r right…, but the point which i tried to make is that when we r doing some work as professionals we need to do it professionally.
        It could have been done by just referring to the previous post,i.e. “… There is more information on this and that device already posted at Propakistani…”. This is how i think is appropriate. And believe me I read this post not to get info abt the referred device but to find that “sentence” or “line” which was missing there.
        Keep Rocking!!!

  • Good information, I required a capture card or something which can capture tv n stuff using laptop or desktop.

    – Hows tv capture quality, i mean does videos are also of standard size? I had a tv card many many years ago, it used to record pathetic videos in avi and size more than 200 mb for less than a minute.

    – Can we use it with desktops?(I think its a silly question and answers is yes, but still confirming)

    – Also does it work with win 7- 64 bit?

    Today going to Dubai plaza to purchase a good usb capure card or this device..

    Thanks for all this good info!

  • Thanks for giving us information but i can’t trust on these kind of accessories, wo aap ne suna ho ga na, “Mehnga roye Aik baar, Sasta Roye baar baar”.

  • Typically, the VDR behaves like a normal digital receiver; the picture is sent to a television, and is controlled using a remote control by choosing items from a simple but functional On Screen Display (OSD). While switching channels, an Electronic Program Guide (EPG) provides information such as the title of the current and next show. The EPG can be configured to display the shows of only one station, or of all current broadcasts in “What’s on now?/next?”. Many other options are also available such as: sortable channel listings, a program schedule, timer programming, and a list of pre-recorded shows. Commercials can be removed from pre-recorded shows using the cutting functions.

    My personal tip is the new Mystique SaTiX-S2 Sky , a PCI card, DVB-S2 (HDTV, MPEG4), which seamless integrates into SuSe (my version 11.3) and VDR system
