    Hi, I'm possibly going to be living in a hotel for a while, and am looking
    for a DVB-T capable Media Center Edition laptop, preferably with Dual Tuner
    support. My hope is to record my own shows using either the hotel antenna
    in the room, or a good quality digital portable antenna.

    Any recommendations for high-end nice widescreen laptops that fit the bill?

    I have a Toshiba Qosmio with a built in tuner, and I can get all the channels
    in the hotels when I plug it in using my universal remote with the laptop,
    and they record a treat. It also has instant on, so that I don't have to boot
    windows to play a DVD and watch TV.

    Mark.

    Thanks. Is the tuner DVB-T then (digital 'freeview' channels)? What model
    do you have, and is it a dual tuner?

  4. Your best bet is to use two USB DVB-T adaptors. There are some small ones on
    the market now (e.g.
    http://tven.terratec.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=2
    27 ). I think the chances of a laptop having built-in DVB-T (let alone TWO)
    is zero.
