Miglia debuts TVDuo
Miglia Technology today debuted TVDuo, the world's first dual digital TV tuner for Mac systems. The device is designed to bring a complete DVR experience to Mac desktops by integrating two digital terrestrial tuners, allowing users to watch and record programs without having to decide which to miss and which to watch. TVDuo is compatible with the DVT-T standard, and works in most European and Asian countries, according to Miglia. The company plans to demonstrate TVDuo on stand 458 at Mac Expo in the UK. The device requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and will ship with a 2-year warranty (pricing was unavailable).
Bundled with Elgato's EyeTV2, TVDuo enables users to record TV, remove advertisements from recorded footage while watching live TV, access EPG data from the internet, schedule recordings, and export recorded shows to a video iPod or Mac applications such as iDVD or Toast.
TVDuo includes USB 2.0 connectivity, two DVT-T TV tuners with free to air digital TV broadcasts, and an antenna connection for passive or powered antennas. The device measures 98 x 68 x 28-mm, and weighs 450 grams. Shipped models include two mini-antennas, a remote control, a USB cable, and a CD with EyeTV software and a PDF user's guide.
