    :woohoo:

    Brian was diggin through some junk and found his old EyeTV USB unit...no cable box needed.
    Picture is grainy, but I don't care.
    The only issue is that the channel listings are all entirely wrong.
    But now I can have TV on my puter screen while goofing off here and elsewhere...ESPN of course....

    interesting..
    but i'm assuming you must have the cable service installed at your home for this to work. I initially thought it was a substitute for the service.

    thanks for the link btw.

    Well, yeah, there needs to be a live cable, and it's strongly suggested that you pay for the service, but it's basically the same thing that is already in TV sets, but converts it to a USB signal.

    Hawaii is a little on the slow side. TV has been on the mainland since the 40's.

    True. They had to wait for some cultural diversity to develope because neither "T" nor "V" is in the Hawaiian alphabet. We're still waiting for "R" to show up, but it may be several more years before customs will allow it.
