AVerMedia M785 PCI Analog TV is a TV tuner card produced by Avermedia. A TV tuner card is a device used in computers to enable it to receive signals of television and display it on the computer, benefiting the user so much in that he or she will save on space by having the computer and the television contained in a single electronic device which is the computer itself. There are some TV tuner cards which also function as video capture cards. Video capture means that they can record television on the hard disk of the computer and watch their favorite show later on when they have the time to do so. This is not only useful in terms of convenience but also for posterity, especially for those users who may wish to watch a show again after it has been aired.
