What’s a television tuner?
A television tuner is a handy peripheral that can significantly expand your computer's capabilities. Its mission is pretty simple: to receive audio and video signals and relay them to your PC. Additionally to converting TV signals, some TV tuners can also allow users to record TV shows on computer’s hard drive. The peripheral will be of great use to those looking to turn their machine into a full-fledged media centre.
Types of TV tuners
Based on the input connection types, TV tuners can be basically divided into two kinds: internal and external ones. Internal television tuners usually come as a part of a system unit, whereas an external TV tuner can be attached to your computer via a USB port. When it comes to the type of broadcast, a user can choose between an analog and digital TV tuner, or rely on a combo one if they are not sure on their broadcast type.
