    I'm awaiting an Ainol Flame 7" tablet (in transit :rolleyes: ) but until I get it I've never handled an Android tablet. Having said that, I'm hoping I can use it throughout the house to view live Free to Air (antenna) TV via WiFi. I see Ipods have such a device that is powered off a wall socket but is there something like that available for my tablet? Still, I'm happy for any assistance forthcoming. It also has Bluetooth but I would expect these peripherals to be WiFi. This would obviously need a TV tuner built in. Alternatively, can I receive WifI from my PC (win 8 i7CPU) via WiFi using something that broadcasts via the second DVI port on my Graphics card ?

    Alternatively, the OP could use Splashtop to stream to his tab any content originating on a PC. I use it all the time on my Acer Iconia A500 to watch TV and even Hulu, which isn't supported on Android.
