Hauppage NOVA-T Tuner

TV tuner add-in cards are commonplace in home theater PCs, but Hauppage says it has released a new PCI adapter which is truly the ideal for these systems. In releasing its WinTV NOVA-T 500 card, the company claims to have produced the first expansion card that has dual digital TV tuners. Designed for Europe's DVB-T over-the-air video format, the 500 is capable of displaying one show while recording another and uses only a single antenna to receive both broadcasts. Although designed to integrate with Windows XP Media Center (and eventually Windows Vista), Hauppage's adapter comes bundled with a free program scheduler and WingSE, a software tool that can convert recorded shows to iPod or PSP format. This most recent NOVA-T model ships now for 100 ($188 US) including tax. Hauppage hasn't yet announced an equivalent that would use the North American ATSC digital broadcast standard.
