    Hello All!
    I plan on getting VMware Fusion 3 to install Windows 7 Home Premium on my 2010 MacBook Pro.

    I was wondering...One of the features in Windows 7 is that 'Live TV' thing-very cool. Will it work on the MBP? and if it does, do I have to hook up chords and stuff to it? I mean, what steps do I have to take?

    I think what you're referring to is the TV in media center. This only works if you have a tv tuner, so it won't work on your macbook pro. You can optionally buy an external usb tv tuner, and run it through mac os x rather than going through the virtual machine.

    One of these fine Ethernet tuners http://www.silicondust.com/products/hdhomerun/atsc/ would do too. They have a Cablecard model coming soon and a repackage if their existing line due in Feb.
