Default External TV Tuners / PVR Devices: 3-way shootout

TV Tuners for the PC have existed for a long time but with the ever increasing popularity of TiVo-like services and the possibility of replicating such features on your Windows PC with little effort and a small investment, tuners have been getting a lot of attention this year.

We took on three different products for this shootout, all of them external devices which should offer extra versatility versus its internal counterparts. The first is a unit from Transcend, which is called the TV-Box. Next on the docket will be a unit from Digistor. And finally, the largest of the bunch is the RTV VEG-N Video Entertainment Generator.

These are no frills units that allow you to watch television on your monitor, or play an Xbox game or two. How about a night at the movies, right on your laptop? Need a place to connect your camcorder to, and record the video? Do you like to pause and record live television? And guess what? It’s pretty darn cheap. Read the complete article for more.
