I have a HP Pavilion dv7-1451nr purchased during the Fall of 2009. It has been updated to Windows 7 Professional.
Can I replace the present CD-DVD drive in it with a Blu-ray Drive?
Also, can I retrofit a TV tuner into the same laptop?
Does HP have these available and what drivers need be installed? Do you have any information on your site that gives more discussion on such a retrofit?
Thanks for any information.

According to your maintenance and service guid there is a specific Blu-Ray ROM available for you laptop HP
part # 480461-001
Here is you service guide.
As for the TV tuner, there is usually a blank spot in the laptop for this, check the guide out.
The software is available for both of these. There are no drivers per say.
A word of caution, you may have to do a clean install to W7 to get these things to run properly. I will help you with that if need be. There is a right and wrong way to do a clean install.
The Blu-ray software may not function properly with an upgrade, HP's Media Smart DVD is very finicky when it comes to W7 upgrades.
