View Full Version : Free TV tuner card
06-22-2000, 04:58 PM
<a href=http://www.planetville.com/>Planetville</a> appears to give away free TV tuner cards with free shipping.
The "catch" is that when you watch TV on your PC (Windows only at this time) and they display adverts while you watch.

Has anyone done this?
How is it?
And can you use it to record? and if so what does it record to avi,mpg?

Looks kinda cool... hehe i bet you that within a month of it's launch people will come out with hacks to get rid of the ads and maybe even the internet requirement http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/tongue.gif
These guys have been around for a while and are VERY sketchy. Read their TOS and you'll realize that you practically sign over the rights to all data that comes out of your computer. Scary stuff.

i did this about 10 months ago.
And still haven't recieved anything

True about the signing away of all your rights, but you do the same with AllAdvantage or any other software you install. I'm assuming that you never need to use their software.
They don't ship it. A whole lot of people ordered these a long time ago and noone has recieve it yet.
-So I sez to him, getch yer own monkey.
thanks for the heads up warning.
Woo-Hoo my 100th post!

Agreed. I signed up for this a long time ago with no response from the company.

Same here, the compan sells your info so don't bother signing up. Thankfully they're selling my 100% fictional character who lives at an apartment I'll be at for only 1 more year hehe http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
Ço£o§§ü§ - yeah you can read into it...

Argh...which reminds me that I need a TV tuner card that is Win2k compatible, and has stereo. Any ideas?

I thought they went through the list manually and decided that Suspect Device couln't be a real name last year. Should I try it again? Yup, how about Mr. Suspecka Vice (sounds like a foregin name!). If I get junk mail in a few months addressed to Mr. Vice, I will personally bring down their site!

did this a LONG time ago and haven't heard anything from them...nor has their website been updated at all.
