    So, after I rec'd my XPS 140 and the MCE remote I got this idea to get a tv tuner pc-card for this thing. Figured I'll be hooking it up to the 42" HD plasma I recently purchased (as soon as I get the nerve to move the plasma out so I can hook the cables up to it).

    Ordered one of those from newegg for $55 USD shipped.

    I'll let you know how it works with the XPS and maybe throw ya a couple of pics of the unit in action and how much is sticks out and such.

    This will also help me decide whether to use MCE or just buy Snapstream stuff for a home system I'm coverting to small form factor (just ordered all of that stuff too).

    Stay Tuned...


    :p

    XPS M140 uses ExpressCard not PCMCIA, that card will probably not work.

    Yea... you better cancel your order if its not to late, or return it as soon as you get it. The only two types of cards that will work for the XPS m140 is the ExpressCard tuner cards, and USB / Firewire tv tuners.
