    TV tuners for your computer are pretty old hat, but ones that also work on your smartphone or tablet are new and exciting.

    Questions, questions, questions. That's our first impressions of the AVerMedia AVerTV Vola HD. It's a budget USB TV tuner that makes us ask things like this: TV on a PC?

    Twin-tuner terrestrial HD TV is now possible on your PC with this multi-tuner PCI-E card but it's not all plain sailing for us

    This PC/Mac tuner's ability to stream HD satellite TV across a home network is useful, but marred by its erratic Wi-Fi features

    The most likeable features here are the USB interface and DTV 4 software. USB tuners have been available for a couple of years now but have yet to render the PCI-E cards obsolete, which is where they deserve to be; USB is the best option for systems of all sizes. The DTV software is bundled with every tuner in the Videomate range, and its ease of use is still unsurpassed.

    This free-to-air PC sat tuner supports SD and HD channels, but its claims to 3D readiness aren't what you might expect

    Compro VideoMate S800F review

    The S800F is intended to allow users access to TV with the ease they're used to from their actual idiot box, but with much more tweakery and functionality.

    It won't win any beauty contests but the EyeTV Sat's allure is under its skin – and Mac-lovers will certainly fall for its charms

    While it remains broadly true that tuners powered by Elgato’s EyeTV application are better, richer solutions,

    Installing a digital satellite card in your PC allows you to keep up with all your favourite satellite TV channels - and listen to satellite radio - on your computer desktop while you work. It also lets you timeshift and record programmes

    Elgato EyeTV 3 review

    For years, Elgato has been making the best software for watching TV on your Mac, and though others have tried to compete, EyeTV has always been the preeminent solution. Despite a lacklustre debut, The Tube from equinux has begun to show itself as a credible competitor, and the result of this competition is better software for us.

    The MSI Digivox is a large USB TV dongle with an RF antenna at one end that plugs into either your rooftop aerial or the supplied portable version. With support for 1080i High Definition broadcasts, this works as a digital terrestrial TV tuner, so you can receive Freeview channels.
