New Avid TV tuners

Avid has announced three new TV tuners, which the company says are certified for both Windows Vista and Media Center -- the latter allowing PVR-style program recording. Of the tuners, the most interesting to Americans is likely to be the Pinnacle PCTV HD Tuner Kit, which receives ATSC and NTSC broadcasts and works with any Vista machine that has a USB 2.0 port. Because of this, the tuner should be ideal for TV-addicted travellers, who can simply plug the device into their laptops. The kit will ship in March for $129, coming bundled with a Media Center remote.

The other two tuners are aimed at a European market. The first is another USB 2.0 product, ready to receive PAL, SECAM, and DVB-T signals, while the second is a PCI kit, which can only handle PAL and SECAM. Like the American tuner, Media Center remotes will come standard out of the box. No prices or release dates have been mentioned for these products.
