    the problem is not while driving.. broadcast TV is not made to get picked up while driving.

      Yes, it should work. I'm thinking about placing one in my carputer as well, but I may use a pci tv + radio card instead.

      I know of one person who used that same usb tuner, but hewas unsatisfied with the reception and removed it.

      Anyone using TV cards in their carputer like to share their experiences? How is the reception, etc?

          I have used the Happuang and the ATI card - I could pick about 4 chanels that gave satisfactory reception. Odly enough - amplified antennas only seem to increas the static. The really freaky part - I seem to get the best reception when I drive under an over pass.

          Im thinking it has something to do with the makeup of the cement. But masonry was never a strong point.

            As far as I have seen on this board, this sounds like the best option a person is going to get in a moving vehicle. It was discussed here .

            Unless of course you would like to go with a digital Tv reciever on the roof of your car, they make omni directional ones for OH about $2000

            Good luck
