Hauppauge Digital have just released their WinTV Nova-TD TV tuner, a TV ‘stick’ featuring their Antenna Diversity technology which helps to improve TV reception in marginal Freeview areas, allows the connection of two antennae to two built-in tuners which can be used to boost a weak signal, and also allows reception on the move, theoretically at up to 100mph.
In good reception areas, the USB unit can be used as a dual-tuner unit, allowing two sources to be watched or recorded simultaneously.
The Nova-TD Stick comes with two high gain indoor aerials, a remote control, and software, and is priced at just £79.99, which seems pretty good value. It’s compatible with Windows XP, Windows MCE, and Vista. It requires a PC with at least a 1.7GHz processor.
