I was thinking about getting one of the usb dongles

you should test a sling box as well, that is what I think I will end up buying

Would this be able to stream video from the laptop (say movies) to the TV? I don't think I read something exactly like that, and I was curious.

You can use AMD Live to connect to the PC that has the TV 750U installed and use that connection to watch TV from a Laptop, or HTPC via the internet. I Hope that answers your question.

Thanks

Hello. I liked your review and have this TV tuner but have yet to figure out how to record cable tv with it. I have tried plugging every cable into every place possible with no success. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have managed to get it to see a vcr or camcorder or record live tv using the rabbit ears but that is all. Thanks in advance.

Hello. New user here. I replied to another post but it may not be the correct one. Your review was great but I am having problems figuring out how to record cable tv with this card. I have the dongle with the s-video and RCA inputs. I have managed to record from a vcr and camcorder as well as live TV using the rabbit ears but for the life of me I can't get it to see any signal when hooked up to a cable box. I have plugged every cable in every configuration I can think of but still no luck getting signal or getting the computer to recognize the cab;e box as a valid input device. Any help wopuld be greatly appreciated. I was hoping to use it as a DVR with a 1TB external hard drive. I have a Toshiba Satellite with I5 processor and 4GB ram running Windows 7. Thanks in advance.
