    Default TV on PC

    A propos of absolutely nothing at all. I acquired a cheap VCR (37) to permanently hook up to my PC so I could transfer VHS videos to digital. But what I've got as an additional benefit is that I can now watch TV on my PC (and record TV, of course). The only downside I can see is that I can't have a cute little window open in the corner of the screen - I have to use Ulead Video Studio - but other than that, it's great. Plus little - if any - more expensive than a TV card, and a damn site more reliable if all the TV card horror stories are to be believed.
    Premiere Pro, Encore, Photoshop, Ulead VS6, WXP Pro, Core 2 Duo, 2GB, 2 x 250GB SATA3 drives, 2 x 250GB USB 2 external drive, DVD writer, GeForce 7300 GS 256MB

    The biggest fool can ask questions that the wisest man cannot answer...

    Thanks Marc. Do you - or anyone - know whether the trial version is limited time or limited functionality? I don't really want to spend $28...
