Personal video players

Gone is the excitement of a portable DVD player, now we actually want live TV on the go. It might be coming to your mobile soon, but until it does, you can adapt your laptop for digital TV or try this bulkier solution from Mustek.

The receiver is compatable with DVB-T, MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 and stores up to 1000 programme channels with added electronic programme guide and teletext support.It’s even got a mini remote for channel hopping. As a player, it has a 7-inch active matrix TFT flipscreen and built-in Dolby Digital und Dolby Prologic decoders. It can run DVD, DVD±R/RW, CD, CD-R/RW, (S)VCD, MP3, Kodak Picture CD and JPEG. 

You can pick it up with a rechargeable battery, power adapter and car cigarette lighter adapter for around £210
