Why no tv tuners or detachable tv tuners for portable dvd players?
i would want one.
Well there are a few out there with built-in tuners and a few with bolt on tuners. One thing you should know about TV is you will not get an anywhere decent picture reception while on the move. If your tv watching from a fixed location better to get a freeview digital box (around £50 these days) or if you have SKY / Cable etc get a video sender (50 quid again) and watch your channels from anywhere in the house on your portable.
All of these options require a video in function on your DVD player.
Never seen a portable dvd player(with screen) with a tv tuner in.
i don't think you have understood the question-a freeview box? i don't think you can put a freeview box into a portable dvd player.
I'm talking about an attachment tv tuner to make a portable dvd player in to a mini tv.like the sega game gear had a detachable tv tuner so you could watch tv on it.
I know nothing about it, but a quick web search came up with this:
Oh yes I did & Oh yes you can, your not looking too hard bud.
Loads more out there, connect PS2 / XBOX / FREEVIEW anything you like.
namepincher.Freeview with a small aerial like that,i doubt it.
I'm not saying that aerial IS the freeview numbscull simply that it (and even others with no tv tuner) can have an AV in where you (well probably not you) can connect ANY AV out device.
Check this one out, it's got 200 Nintendo NES games too!!!
