ProLink has Express card TV tuner

With FM radio and A/V in

| HT & Movies News | Posted: Sep 3, 2007 12:09 pm

ProLink has released its PixelView PlayTV Xpress Express card TV tuner card. It's quite a well features Express card, it supports all worldwide TV standards as well as it's got a built in FM radio tuner and video capture features. It doesn't support any digital TV standards though, which makes it a bit less appealing when you're considering that more and more countries are going digital and killing their analog TV networks.

 

The PlayTV Xpress uses the PCI Express bus rather than USB which is also an option for Express card devices and it's a 54mm Express card. It's also compatible with Windows Media Center Edition and it supports time shift recording.

 

 

It will capture video from an S-Video or composite video source as well as stereo audio via two RCA stereo connectors. It will only record video in MPEG 1 and 2, which is a shame, as both formats takes up a lot more space than MPEG4. A dongle has to be attached for video capture. The PlayTV Express is supplied with a remote control. You can find out more here
