AVerMedia Mac Tuners Soon

AVerMedia is developing TV tuners and software to match that will support Mac users, the company said today. A shift from the company's typical Windows-only appraoch will see it release a USB tuner that picks up both analog broadcasts as well as over-the-air digital standards, including Europe's DVB-T. The company plans to supply Mac-specific features such as Apple Remote support and a viewing app similar in style to Apple's pro software.

No name has been given to the tuners, though multiple devices should be available during the summer that will more appropriately fit the Mac experience, according to the firm; whether the tuners will offer features similar to Windows versions, such as TV show recording, is also unclear at this time.

    Volar TV Tuners For Mac?

    Hmmm. AverMedia announced an Apple Mac TV tuner line at Computex, still no sign of units shipping at year's end. Unless they partner up with ElGato-EyeTV or Equinux-TheTube for Mac DVR-PVR software, it's going to be a tough market to compete in. For bargain hunter's, Aver's Volar line for PC has a budget street price - would be nice to have an affordable OS X HD tuner option for Mac.
