Pinnacle PCTV To Go

Pinnacle expanded its TV tuner lineup today with its range-topping PCTV To Go media hub. The company says its newest PCTV device improves on the remote-access TV formula established by the Slingbox by building in an 802.11g wireless system, avoiding the need for an Ethernet cable or a wireless bridge. The result is the ability to control and stream TV from any broadband-equipped PC with Pinnacle's viewer software installed, even programming a DVR attached to the system. Viewers on the local network can also watch video at DVD quality and record it directly to their PCs. Though not required, Windows XP Media Center will see the PCTV To Go as a live TV source. Pinnacle hopes to deliver its new tuner late this month for $250.
