LifeView ECard TV Tuners

Prepping notebook owners for Vista Home Premium, LifeView today launched a set of ExpressCard TV tuners that link to the upcoming OS and its Media Center functions. The FlyTV Express M5 MST2-A2 and M5 MST-A2 plug into the ExpressCard/54 slot of newer laptops and play or record the DVB-T digital broadcast format, including advance scheduling and timeshifting. Either also receives analog NTSC and PAL co-axial signals plugging in through either an antenna or a direct cable link. Simultaneous playback recording of two channels is possible with both cards, LifeView notes, though only the flagship MST2 version will handle four live feeds at the same time.

The two cards should be available near the Vista launch, and should be accompanied by the M3, a digital-only dual tuner that plugs into narrower ExpressCard/34 slots. Pricing has not been revealed. [via The Inquirer]
