I have a desktop computer fitted with a selection of TV

Customer Question
I have a desktop...

I have a desktop computer fitted with a selection of TV channels, I would like to have Freeview on to add more interesting scope to watch.

Technician's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

It is a new thought that I have to add to my present programms

Technician's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes if it's not too difficult

Technician's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No I thought it would be a simple button pushing job?

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of the appliance? And has it done this before?

The computer is an AESSUS and the screen is a HKC Assembled privatly

Hi there and welcome

What you need for this to work is a USB Tuner that plugs into your USB port and allows you to watch Freeview on your computer.

The tuner you can purchase from my link below

https://www.amazon.co.uk/USB-Freeview-Tuner-Television-Connection/dp/B00527OCT6

It is not a push button job as it requires an antenna to get the signal, which is the adapter I am recommending to you

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
