Advice on iMac G3 TV Mod wanted

I bought an old iMac G3 and want to convert it to a TV. I bought an ElGato USB tuner, but it does not work with my iMac G3. Does anybody have any suggestions, or succesful stories?

Thank you in advance,

Best regards,

I'm purty sure all the Elgato tuners are USB 2.0 only and your machine only has USB 1.1. It's a pity because they'd make great little T.V.s. Unless someone makes a FireWire TV card/plug in thingy, which I doubt, I'm afraid you're out of luck.

Initial joy at this information cruelly dispelled by the 213 quid price tag
