Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick

Though Windows users are currently in the majority, a disproportionate number of external TV tuners are designed for Macs, often leaving owners of Media Center PCs searching for internal PCI cards or laptops with built-in tuners. Pinnacle has come to the aid of those seeking a more easily replaceable tuner in the form of the PCTV HD Pro Stick, a compact USB 2.0 tuner that can accept both ATSC over-the-air HDTV broadcasts as well as standard NTSC for analog signals. Cable, satellite, and DV camera users can also plug non-HD video sources directly into either co-ax or RCA ports on the HD Pro Stick. Timeshifting software is included that can play video and record it in several different formats, including iPod- and PSP-ready versions. Pinnacle claims direct support for Windows XP Media Center's TV features as well. The HD Pro Stick is available immediately for $130. External antennas and a Media Center-capable wireless remote are optional.
