TV for PC?
« on: Mon Jul 30, 2007 - 22:53:48 »
Does anyone know about this product?  I've checked 4 or 5 sellers but can find no customer review.  It looks just like what I want, but I don't want to buy it blind.
Thanks,

After a lot of surfing I settled on the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950 TV...   $79.99  (from Amazon).  It is basically the same as the PInnacle.  The difference is that I was able to speak to a knowledgeable lady at Hauppauge who confirmed for me that this item would do what I wanted.

I am anxiously awaiting for its arrival.  It shipped yesterday -- probably from Amazon's warehouse here in Reno.  I'll let you know how it works for me.

It is wonderful!  The clarity on my 19" LCD monitor is as good as the 42" HDTV in the living room.  Denver looked good in their victory over the Niners.

Well then, if you don't need the 42-incher, how about wrapping it up and sending it to me?
