Hello,
My laptop recently broke and I have a tv tuner I was wondering if there was a simple way I could use it on a new desktop i'm building so that I won't have to buy another one.

Probably. We need to know what interface your tuner uses. I'm sure it's not as simple as a USB tuner, right?

Just to get you started, here are some laptop expansion card adapters:

Expresscard to PCIe

PCMCIA to PCI

mini PCI to PCI

Again, we'll need to know what interface your laptop is using.

It's an HP ExpressCard so I would assume option number one is what I would need. Thanks for your help.
