    WinTV adapters

    I found my old ZX81 computer today and thought I'd try it with my current W7 x64 rig.
    I had an old Hauppage WinTV PCI card, so I stuck it in the PC, but couldn't install it because it's not compatible with a 64 bit PC.

    Can anyone suggest a cheap USB TV adapter I could use, I only need analogue TV input with basic tuning to locate the ZX81 output.

    I've had a quick scout round but can only find expensive adapters that include Digital and PVR inputs, which I don't need.

    Thanks for any help or advice.

    I think Pinnacle and Pixel View has some analog USB TV devices.

    Thanks for that.
    I've ordered a stick that looks promising from a Chinese supplier, but it'll take a while to arrive.
    I'll report back on whether or not it's a success.

    USB stick came quicker than expected - it works fine, although finding Ch36 (594Mhz) proved challenging.

    Found the stick here
