Miglia ships TVMini2

Miglia today began shipping the TVMini2 digital tuning device designed specifically for Mac users, and announced new promotions for European as well as UK customers looking to purchase iMacs. The TVMini2 features a stylish ultra-slim design to serve as the smallest USB device of its kind available, according to Miglia. It slots neatly into a USB 2.0 port, without blocking any other ports/outlets, including the MagSafe on MacBook Pro systems. Miglia's TVMini2 is priced at 60 in the UK or 80 for European customers.

Miglia is also enabling any UK-based customer who purchases a new iMac to also buy a Miglia TVMini 2 for 1 until December 16th, while European customers who purchase a new iMac can receive a Miglia TVMini 2 for just 1 until December 31st.

"TVMini2 is powered by a high performance Tuner and Demodulator. Inherited from the mobile TV world (in car entertainment for example), this technology translates into a much higher performance when it comes to signal reception," says Miglia. "TVMini2 captures your TV shows in pristine MPEG-2 digital quality, without modifying what is broadcast by TV stations (MPEG-2 is the video format used on DVDs)."

The device enables users to put music videos, TV shows, and movie recordings on to iPods or other gadgets. TVMini2 also offers an export function in 'The Tube' to create h.264 video files that are readable by Apple and Sony devices.

    Anything for us Yanks?

    The Miglia says that tuners for ATSC/QAM are "coming soon," but currently lists only analog tuners for the Mac. Analog TV signals will stop broadcasting in the USA in February, 2009. Does anybody know of a good ATSC tuner?

    A few other things

    The usb tuners don't look so small once you have a coaxial antenna cable screwed into the end. Which brings up a point, I use one of the 4 inch long usb cables between my Eyetv hybrid and my powerbook. Coaxial antenna cables are very stiff and I don't want any movement of the cable to torque on my powerbooks usb port. The short cable is more flexible and acts as a shock absorber.

    Also the portable nature of these things is mostly negated by the rather large to huge size of most decent tv antennas. If you live out in the burbs you will need a full sized tv antenna to get a decent signal.
