I’ve been looking into tv tuner cards lately for my laptop the PCMCIA card type and I got to thinking, even with a decent card (which I still need help finding) It’ll still be necessary to remain stationary while the coax cable is screwed onto the card.
So I was wondering if such an approach as wireless networking had been attempted yet (as in a product on the market) that takes a signal from a coaxial cable(the cable company) and via a transmitter sends it wirelessly to the computer.
Of course for every transmitter there must be a receiver so the PCMCIA card would have to “catch” the signal and interpret it and a base station-type set-up would need to convert and broadcast the signal from the cable company.
Tv via pc is fine for desktops that never go anywhere, but laptops have considerably more challenging dilemna as there is more and more demand for a wireless connectivity.
Anybody looked into this stuff?
