iLuv debuts onTime TV
iLuv today announced the onTime TV for Mac, one of the few receivers to bring Japan's 1Seg digital broadcast TV to Apple's computers with its own 6.7-inch antenna for boosting reception indoors. The Mac-friendly tuner supports the same electronic program guides as its Windows counterpart for scheduling show recording, but includes a number of specific touches for its distinct audience, according to iLuv. The device captures audio and video in AAC and H.264 formats respectively for easy transport to iTunes, and viewers can navigate channels through the Apple Remote on a Front Row-equipped Mac. The special edition of the onTime TV requires either a 1.6GHz G5 or 1.66GHz Core Duo Mac using Mac OS X Tiger or better, and is planned for a late February launch at $122, according to New Launches.
