i have a coax cable i pay 17 euro per month and have like 35 channels, is it possible to watch them on my mac then ?

herbalife kotatinggi says:

this set still require conventional TV antenna / Cable to get the signal right? otherwise you will get no channel. Am I right to say that? The channel availability will depends on the country itself.

how about other country TV channel?

If you dont have a mac, and want the same thing but for a lot cheaper, just buy the HP USB Hybrid TV Tuner ks523aa. It works with any windows Vista or 7 pc.

Does it plug into the receiver as well as the Mac?

@gumballtech – *continued*
but seems every set up video is showing us how to use this product at home being hardwired to your cable box or something., which begs the question, WHY would u want to watch tv on your computer when u are sitting right next to your HD television? I think most ppl want to know how to use this product on a beach. So can u explain or do a video on the exact antenna brand, specs we need and exact set-up we’d need to see tv from our laptop on a Beach or train? Please?

PC user here, I got this second hand cheap. Works on windows media, I run it with windows 7 just get the drivers, this thing rocks for what it is. I downloaded the app/drivers named “EyeTV_Hybrid_2008_509081301”
Then just used immediately with windows media with zero prior experience with either win media center or eyeTV.. You need a cable or antenna, know your local market for TV for Win Media Center to lookup. I bought an amplified antenna for 30 on ebay. Coaxial cable hooks in, simple. The range of the remote is solved buy buying a longer USB cord also on ebay and aiming. There are sleeker things out there now but I got mine for so cheap I couldn’t say no.

nice!!!

@gumballtech thanks for that reply. I have just a couple of questions. Ok most people see this product and think we can watch tv anywhere, like in a park, or the beach, using our laptop. Is this true?
However, it appears that everyone who shows how this is set up, are hardwiring the tv tuner stick to their cable box. Now why would someone want to watch tv on their laptop if they have a TV right there?!?! Like WTH?! This product is really nice if its for use when u are NOT home, but seems–

merlynwylld says:

I have the Equinux TubeStick Hybrid. I bet the same Chinese manufacturer make the logic board in both. I bought that and found out that I didn’t have Program Guide, it would have been $35 to start. So it went in the drawer! It looks exactly the same set-up. Thats what happens when you buy something on a “special sale!”
This looks a lot better and faster!!! If you hooked the input to a HDTV antenna I expect you could get OTA broadcast. You didn’t really cover the Program Guide to schedule a rec
