    Laptop usage and FM radio

    Is there a way that I can wire up my laptop to have either A.) An AM/FM tuner. ( I looked at the radio shark, but does that play through the computers speakers? In which case, I wouldn't want) or B.) To have XM satellite radio ported through my laptop? Any help would be appreciated!

    A) Any AM/FM tuner you run through your laptop is going to play through the audio hardware in that compute r(laptop or otherwise). What else are you going to play it through? Now, if you want it to pipe through your car stereo (logical assumption, since that's the focus of these forums), then there are multiple methods for accomplishing that.

    B) There are XM solutions that can go through your laptop, yes. Do some searching here, as well as XM-related websites for those solutions. But again, you're looking at the audio going through your computer's audio hardware. See 'A' above.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
