TV on the road with a multi-tasking laptop

Instead of a TV and another display for your computer, how about a twofer? It is getting easier and less expensive to show TV on your computer. If you have a decent broadband I’net connection, you can use that rather than over the air.

Turn Your Laptop into a TV describes the methods you can use. Hardware approaches include TV tuners that plug into a laptop USB port. Broadband approaches include several websites with TV fare.

If you have a satellite TV system, you might look for a converter that will take the TV signal from your satellite tuner and turn it into a computer compatible input. That is a story for another day.
