MacTV USB tuner

I-O Data has announced that it will be releasing a device called the MacTV before the end of this year. The MacTV is a small, digital USB tuner, designed to fit in with the current Mac line of products, and is currently only clad in white. It has three connections: a USB port, an antenna input and a B-CAS card slot, the last of which is required to decode digital broadcasts in Japan. The menu interface of the software is a translucent cube, which can be controlled via an Apple Remote and rotates, spins or rolls when shifting from menu to menu.

The MacTV will only be released in Japan, and prices are still unknown.

    I saw a MacTV in RadioShack like 10 years ago. All black, all-in-one, TV and computer.
