iLuv onTime TV for Mac
iLuv today announced the onTime TV for Mac. The receiver is one of the few to bring Japan's 1Seg digital broadcast TV to Apple's computers and comes with its own 6.7-inch antenna for boosting reception indoors. The Mac-friendly tuner supports the same electronic program guides as its Windows counterpart for scheduling show recording, but includes a number of specific touches for its distinct audience, iLuv adds. Audio and video are captured in AAC and H.264 respectively for easy transport to iTunes; viewers also have the choice of navigating channels through the Apple Remote on a Front Row-equipped Mac.
The special edition of the onTime TV requires either a 1.6GHz G5 or 1.66GHz Core Duo Mac using Mac OS X Tiger or better and is planned for a late February launch at the equivalent of $122. [via New Launches]
