Hi, I've been wanting to buy a TV tuner for my computer for the last 2 years and whenever I get around to buying it I always ask myself the same question - Internal or External. I would like to trust an external unit, but I don't. I fear they just aren't as durable or as stable as having an internal card. I like the portability aspect, but can someone ease my concerns? Or is it a bit either way? Have you had bad experiences with external tuners? or are tuners in general abit flaky sometimes - due to high gain antennae connection?
Both has good and bad things.
External: usually bad quality but you can watch TV without turning ON PC.
Internal: usually good quality but you MUST turn PC ON if you want to watch TV.
I have both and I'm more likely to use the external one...
