    I think a AM/FM/TV tuner for the Clie N710C and Visor Prism would be a very useful add-on. Imagine being at a ballgame and watching the replays on your Clie. (So you can boo the ump on a bad call)

    I'd pay 80 to $100 bucks for it.

    Any oppinions

    This has been discussed before. Search for TV in title. Been waiting over a year for the announced radio modules.
    My Treo has more memory than I do.

    Well wouldn't it make sense to put all three together. Why just FM.

    Watch TV or, listen to AM or FM.

    Would be nice but video playback is still not too great on the Clie. I mean, it's nice that they can "sorta" do it but I'm not buying anything unless it can have a decent FPS. Maybe in a couple of years though...

    on my old sega gamegear I had a simulat module.
    So it has been done in the past...

    Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?

    Reciving a TV signal has nothing to do with playing back video. Do you have a Pentium 3 in your tv?

    Gamegear?!! I thought I was the only one who bought that. It had some killer graphics for it's size/time. Too bad it went the way of the dreamcast/saturn/genesis. Sega seems to have a hard time getting marketshare, even though they have the games.

    I think the NEC Turbo Graphix 16 handheld had a tv tuner as well.

    So technically, can the Clie play 30 fps video? I just thought it wouldn't work because when I saw what gMovie does, I can't even imagine what watching tv would be like! I had a gameGear too! But I sold it.. I still have my dreamcast!! These games are great.. A bit off topic but I'm glad that Sega will still be developing games for other systems now!! When I really have money to spend (hey the clie is a worthwhile investment!) I'd like to get a PSX2 and then check out who is better... xBox or Nintendo's Game Cube... sigh.. If I only had time and $$$!

    Interact has announced a TV tuner for the new GameBoy Advance, available 4th Qtr this year.

    I would love a tuner and/or a video in for my Visor. My idea is that you make a simple, slim video-in module. Then you could have a TV tuner attachment to plug into that, the tuner would have to be larger than a standard module anyhow. You could also then use the Visor as a view finder for video cameras cameras. Lastly, when we get virtual graffiti, a DVD player could be developed that had a sideways cradle(Oriented For Widescreen).

    the reason a old unit such as a gamegear or a small unit such as a PDA could do tv is that the module would do all the work, it would just use the screen to show its data. it doesnt have to open any video files and decode them.

    MikeD, did you try playing gMovie clips from the memory stick or from internal RAM? I found that they play more-or-less smoothly from the internal RAM.

    I dunno if I'd call it 30 FPS, but it's a lot better than playing them from the MS...
