Pinnacle tuner/USB drive

Avid subdivision Pinnacle has debuted the PCTV DVB-T Flash Stick, an unusual approach to tuning in DVB-T broadcasts. By plugging the device into a Windows PC's USB 2.0 port, users instantly gain not only the ability to stream TV and radio, but record it using DVR software, incorporating a program guide with options such as timeshifting. The stick is further equipped with 1GB of memory, which can be used as the main source of storage except when integrating with Windows Media Center. DivX compression can be used for more efficiency. It should be available soon in the UK, but buyers must check with retailers for prices. [via Krunker]
