How do tv tuners for PC work? and how to choose?
Really depends on your plans if you intend to down the road go HDMI and do the digital HDTV as it requires a external tuner right now for Hauppauge WinTV like Windows Vista does support digital cable but regular cable it does not so a computer with the connection for digital cable is what your looking for. Hauppauge WinTV does large channelizing numbers but you again have to have a digital cable connection not regular cable, Charter offers both types but most people do not pay attention to the installation plan so everyone is getting regular cable and Charter calls it DSL Cable but it is a channel choice by them of satellite broadcasts which they give you the option to choose for a plan, digital cable costs more yet does not have anything to do with the Internet speed choices they give you. You know cellphones do not have HDMI and are not HDTV capable, AT&T has a new cellphone which receives Cable Television broadcasts. You can find WiFi Hotspots here: http://www.wifiareas.com/. Ever seen a Buddhist Cell Phone here: http://www.therawfeed.com/2008/04/buddhist-cell-phone-one-with-everything.html. There is a new wireless memory card for digital cameras, Eye-Fi card, which tags each image with its GPS location (latitude and longitude coordinates) that can then be used to search for and categorize images. Eye-Fi Explore, is due out next month, taps into a database run by Skyhook Wireless. Like previous Eye-Fi models, Explore can also automatically send photos over Wi-Fi from your camera to your computer or photo-sharing sites when within range. The $129 Eye-Fi Explore comes with 2 gigabytes of storage and works with any camera using SD memory cards. Jef Holove, chief executive of Mountain View, Calif.-based Eye-Fi Inc. is proud to offer a less time consuming product for every digital camera enthusist. Wi-Fi access points are auto sensed so if your digital camera did not come with this you can add it simply by inserting the Eye-Fi card.
You will find that most newly designed electric hybrids support wireless and some laptops support a wireless LCD display. But a hybrid can come equipped with satellite if you have big bucks to have it installed. When your talking wireless it is only a short range feature, like in a Lexus Hybrid the wireless feature is for headphones for use by the rear seat occupants. I did not see them have a option for satellite and that I wonder if Paul McCarthy really has another to install that for in Britain other than the Japanese maker.

The switch from analog to digital signals will be in 2009 so you got plenty time to decide. You can call 1-888-388-2009 to order the two converter coupons, applicative for antenna reception of digital signals worth $40 each. One is for the TV and the other is for the antenna.
Rabbit and some other transmitter/receiver devices are available so you can do without wires but this is analog with composite video signals likened to what you get from your CAM and to date nothing digital exists. Search for those which you might can obtain at Circuit City or Office Depot. Newer models may have Bluetooth technology like iPod. The FO2800 capable of transmitting high definition video, audio, and control signals simultaneously down one thin, transparent, fiber cable at distances up to 300M. Circuit City has it so if you would rather make your home fiber optical this is the product you need to check into: http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/OWLink-FO2800-Digital-Light-Link-FO2800/sem/rpsm/oid/199720/catOid/-12866/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do
