    Im looking for a bus-powered tv tuner, just to watch tv with, i dont care about recording shows etc. I'm on a powerbook. are there any other bus powered tuners for the mac? besides for the mytv2go i heard that its terrible.
    also are there any hdtv and analog tuners in one (the eyetv500 is only hdtv /digital, and cant pick up regular analog).
    there are so many tuners in the PC world, how are there none for mac?

    after doing extensive research, there are plenty of nice hdtv tuners that will work with mac (with 3rd party drivers). the problem is, they are all DVB not ATSC tuners! (europe, not US)!

    DVB has a bigger market, so that's what all the manufacturers design for. Just like how the majority of software is for Windows, not Mac.
