The WinTV HVR-1500 Notebook Express Card couldn't be easier to install. Simply plug it into you laptop's ExpressCard/54mm slot, and you're ready to enjoy the full benefits of television from the convenience of your computer. Why miss your favorite show or the deciding playoff game just because you have work to do? With this card, you have the option of watching your favorite television programming in a window or on full screen.
The card supports NTSC analog cable, over the air TV, ATSC Digital over the air HDTV, and Clear QAM digital cable TV. NTSC is the analog cable TV standard, and ATSC is the over-the-air digital HDTV standard for North America and typically requires an antenna for reception. Clear QAM digital cable allows you to watch unencrypted HDTV stations from your cable TV provider without a set-top box.
The card features a built-in 125 channel cable-ready TV tuner, allowing you to watch Analog TV and Clear QAM Digital TV by connecting to a cable box with the included adapter cable. Also included is a portable ATSC antenna with MCX connector lets you watch ATSC HDTV at up to 1080i format.
For analog cable TV reception, you will need an analog cable TV connection. If you have a digital cable set-top box or a satellite box, the WinTV-HVR-1500 can connect via either channel 3, Composite or S-Video inputs. For ATSC over-the-air digital TV reception, a high-gain antenna is recommended. (To check the ATSC TV broadcasts in your area, go to TitanTV.com and enter your postal code. Note: depending on the strength of your antenna, you might not be able to receive all broadcasts listed at TitanTV.)
