Pinnacle has unveiled the PCTV DVB-T Flash Stick, the first of a new breed of “Plug and Watch” USB TV tuner/recorders that don’t require any software installation.
The Pinnacle PCTV Flash Stick DVB-T Flash Stick is an external USB 2.0 device that packs in digital TV tuner hardware, software and 1GB of flash memory. An integrated TV tuner and the PVR software are pre-installed, so to start your viewing, just plug into your USB port and after an automatic scan, you can tune into the available TV or radio.
In addition to watching TV, you can TimeShift and record live digital TV, either on the fly or scheduled, with recordings stored on the stick in either MPEG-2 or DivX, or on your hard drive. There’s also an EPG, along with a remote and external antenna.
The Pinnacle PCTV DVB-T Flash Stick will be available from mid March for £69.99.
