Pinnacle TV for Mac HD

Avid's home division Pinnacle today launched three new portable tuners with Mac users in mind. The TV for Mac line plugs directly into the USB 2.0 port of any supporting Mac and lets the computer either watch live TV or schedule recording through a bundled copy of Elgato's EyeTV Lite. A mini-antenna is also packed with every model to help ensure reception indoors or in heavy interference, as is an AV cable to record video from other sources, such as camcorders.

Editions vary by TV format support, Pinnacle says. The TV for Mac HD Stick is the lone US model, which tunes both ATSC for over-the-air HD broadcasts and NTSC for analog TV; the Hybrid Stick caters to European audiences with both DVB-T and analog PAL video, while the similar DVB-T Stick drops analog support for those who only need digital viewing. The TV for Mac HD Stick ships in March for $129. Availability for the European models hasn't been announced.
