    Welcome to TechSpot forums

    It is unlikely that the laptop's video capability has a video in connection. So unfortunately I doubt this is a possibility. One of my workmates does have a USB tv card device which feeds a TV signal into the computer and this works with a laptop (aerial connects to device, device connected via USB connection to laptop).

    Something like the devices for sale from this website would be required:

    If you post details of the laptop model we will be able to confirm whether it does or does not have a video in capability.

    If you think you might stick around at this forum please feel free to post a hello message in the Introduce yourself forum ;)
