Miglia ships TVMini2
Miglia today launched the TVMini2, which the company claims is the smallest USB device of its kind made specifically for Macs. The TVMini2 provides access to portable digital TV tuning, and enables users to transfer recorded files directly onto an iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV. Miglia's Mac-only digital tuner is designed to allow access to all other ports, and allows users to pause live TV using a feature dubbed "Déjà vu." A "Timeshift" recording feature also enables users to pause, rewind, and record chosen TV programs. The TVMini2 is already available for $120, and requires any Mac with built-in USB 2.0 connectivity running Mac OS X 10.4 or later. HD resolutions require at least a dual G5 or Intel-based Mac.
The TVMini2 offers support for viewing the TV guide as well as recordings and scheduled recordings simultaneously within the same window, according to Miglia. The device is backed by a 2-year manufacturer warranty, and includes an "always in front' feature enabling users to work or surf without the need to switch between windows.
Mac owners who purchase the TVMini2 receive the TVMini2 digital TV tuner, Equinux 'The Tube' software, a portable DVB-T Antenna, and a quick start guide.
