First netbook TV tuner

Fabless semiconductor manufacturer MaxLinear recently announced it has teamed up with TV tuner maker Hauppauge Digital to bring the first add-on TV tuner card for netbooks and UMPCs to market. The card, based on MaxLinear's MxL5007T CMOS silicon tuner, can pick up over-the-air HD video ATSC TV signals, European standards that include DVB-T, DVB-H and DMB-T and QAM, which are unencrypted HD cable video channels.

MaxLinear claims its MxL5007T card uses half of the energy of competing products, at about 350mW of power. Currently, only Dell offers an integrated TV tuner in its Inspiron Mini 10 netbook. Pricing or release dates for the MxL5007T were not yet announced. [via Liliputing]
