I have a Dell laptop i3 processor running windows 7 64 bit. It has a hdmi output (to TV)
I plug my Hauppauge USB Tuner: http://www.hauppauge.com/site/produc...a_hvr1950.html
which connects to the antenna.
I use Windows Media Center to schedule and record (or play live TV) via the HDMI to the TV. And yes the Remote control for the Hauppauge box works with it.
It's really that simple.
(there is also Hauppauge software that comes with the tuner, but I don't use it)
