Hi,Looking for some advice on which external usb dongle would be best for freeview on my macbook (os x 10.5 and windows 7 build 7022),I have had a search around and as my budget is quite limited I have come up with some options
and here 
Specs of the MacBook are 2.1GHz Core 2 Duo                                  2gb Ram                                   X3100 intergrated graphics (running full 1080p content is not a problem)

Would these let me watch full hd 1080i (when available) content on an external monitor?and what would be your pick of the bunch, looking to use with media centre on windows 7 and possibly the elegato eyetv software on os x.
Thanks alot.
btw Im not sure if this should be in this forum or the freeview one, if anyone wants to move it feel welcome.

Pinnacle Nano stick works in my MacBook, but I guess as far as it is supported by eyetv software, it should be fine, and they
have a support hardware list in their website.

Video card doesn't matter, eyetv only uses the cpu. They only problem you will have is tv3, might judder from time to time.

Eyetv hybrid from dse, or hvr-900 (not 900H).
