Terratec Cinergy T USB digital TV tuner
Terratec have just announced their Cinergy T USB digital TV tuner for an extremely reasonable price of £39.99. Together with the software (The Eye TV 2 software I think), it acts as your Freeview tuner, PVR so you can record, pause and rewind live TV, and turns your PC into a TV.
This isn’t the only solution to viewing TV on your PC, but it’s certainly one of the cheapest and easiest. If you’re at home and close to a proper aerial socket, you’ll get the best picture, as always, otherwise you’ll be stuck with one of those funny black plastic portable aerials that manufacturers seem to think will pick up all the digital channels when you’re sitting on a cliff in the middle of nowhere.
