    I'm having a 'old age brain hiccup' here and can't for the life of me remember the free program that will show all details of everything within one's computer (trying to see if my computer has a 'TV tuner card' so I can transfer VHS tapes onto my hard drive).

    Thanks so much!

    Yipes, tons of info and so much of it I actually understand - wheeee!!!:snckr:

    Now wondering if 'TV tuner card' would actually say that/what section would that info be under, I wonder?


    For instance, I know what the things in green font are below but the rest of it ... perhaps it shows that the computer is capable or not of having a 'TV Tuner card'?

    HID-compliant consumer control device

    USB Composite Device
    USB Root Hub (5x)

    Thanks again!

    Unless a very modern computer that specifically states in its specifications that TV tuning is incorporated, then usually a TV tuner card is fitted as an extra in one of the PCI or PCIE slots at the back, and usually comes with the standard TV antenna socket fitted Mara. That of course is in the case of a desktop tower. Laptops either have it built in or they don't, and older laptops it isn't possible to my knowledge.

    I'll have to turn this tower around and take a peek to see what if anything is in a slot in the back - thanks, Nev!
