Toshiba M35X with integrated video, and it has trouble playing back some
high-resolution, high-motion videos from its own hard drive, so I imagine
this would even be worse playing back a digital video image filtered through
its USB port. The varous websites touting digital TV adaptors are all a
bit coy on the quality of display produced on laptops, and some specify that
integrated graphics cards won't work. Frozen or pixilated images really
ruin my experience of watching TV on a laptop. I can receive a dozen
digital stations OTA at home, and I have been thinking that a USB ATSC &
NTSC receiver might be a substitute from a set-top box digital/analog
converter for my old analog TV, in addition to being of use when away from
home. The groups and sites dedicated to digital TV are not very helpful in
getting this kind of information.
Re: Digital TV on a laptop through USB 2.0 device, does it work for anyone here?
I started to look into that - saw a 6"B&W at the market for $15 + $6
environmental fee + tax - and said what the heck since it only
consumes 15w and comes with a 12v adapter - went for it for the road.
The simplicity and certainty sold me.
