    Hi Everyone,

    I'm currently awaiting the arrival of my own Macbook (having borrowed one for the last few months). It is the mid-spec whitebook and I've ordered 2Gb of RAM for it which I will install almost straight away. I plan to install Parallels and Windows XP on it and I wondered whether anyone had any idea whether I should be able to install and use my WinTV-NOVA-T-USB2 digital terrestrial TV tuner under Parallels. I know there is little or no support under Mac (but always the glimmering promise of a hacked-up solution on the horizon) but I was wondering if this might work instead/in the mean time?

    Thanks to anyone who replies,

    Alec

    no idea if Parallels supports USB2 (likely to be the biggest issue) but iTele supports a lot of "Windows Only" tv tuners.. i use it with a DVico usb2 tuner. its not perfect, but it gets me by (until i get around to joining the legions of followers of the one true lord- el Gato)
