Compro VideoMate U500


The VideoMate U500 is a small USB2.0 TV tuner, which measures in at only 9.4cm long x 3.2cm wide x 1.8 cm high.



In terms of digital TV playback and recording features, it's almost identical to the T100 TV tuner - it supports SDTV and HDTV up to and including 1080i, PIP/POP in up to four windows, digital EPG, subtitles, teletext and language features, timeshifting, MPEG-2 recording and still frame capture.



The main difference is that it features a DiBcom DVB-T chip, supports Straight-To-Disc direct TV recording to DVD and is Windows XP MCE2005 compatible.


The stick bundle includes the tuner itself, installation CD with ComproDTV2, ComproDVD2, Ulead PhotoExplorer 8.5SE, drivers and manuals, Ulead DVD MovieFactory 4 SE, IR remote control, Start Up Guide, snake pipe USB extension cord and Digital Terrestrial TV antenna.



The system requirements are the same as for the T100, except that the U500 only runs on Windows XP SP2.
