That would be the DVD's capability, not the antenna though.

I have seen many times selling in All IT Hypermarket in Lowyat and Digital Mall since a year ago. Just yesterday, I was in All IT Hypermarket, Digital Mall and I saw Pinnacle with a Digital & Analog model. I can't exactly remember the price but it was about RM350-399.

Anyway, just head to the TV Tuner section in either "All IT Hypermarket" and you will bound too see a few Digital TV tuner from a few different brands.

But the hassle of turning on the laptop, setting it up on the dashboard while driving, and watching TV at the same time, sure will get me into a whole lot of trouble with the polis..... ](*,)

So i was wondering if this gadget can b plucked into the USB port of a small portable DVD player, like the Shinco or toshiba or watever brand, and if it is really pluck-and-play type, instead of installing the software into the laptop like wat it is now yah?? :zzz:

Tat will surely b a bestseller then!!! \:D/
I think you should get one of these instead: :mrgreen:

Unfortunately, when it's available, it's only sold exclusively in Italy.

I have a Digital TV tuner (Similar technology ie DVB-T) installed in my car, display is on my touch screen head unit as well as a roof mount screen. Receive Singapore channel 5,8, Channel New Asia and TV Mobile. Reception is clear even traveling ard 100km/h. East area reception is not as good as rest of Singapore but still pretty gd. Good to catch up with some news while waiting for my wife/kids etc.

I do know some portable DVD player (taiwan, China) do have DVB-T tuner but dunno whether you can get it in Singapore. Just make sure you get something with DVB-T. Don't bother to buy those with analog tuner, it's cheap but piece of junk.
