With the cricket world cup just around the corner, I'm in the don't-want-to-miss-a-single-match mode. And since I have to be in office and still satisfy the cricket maggot in my head, I went out looking for a TV tuner that could fit my (very little) budget.
I came across a tiny little box that 'supposedly' was the solution to my dilemma (if I can call it that.); the Tech-Com SSD-TV-812PLUS TV Tuner. Let's see what it offers.
Hemmed in a shiny piano-finish plastic case with a chrome border sits a TV tuner that connects to your computer using the standard USB port and converts your PC into a full-fledged new age TV with the ability to capture screenshots, record from live TV, or Time Shift in your favorite program and did I mention it's small enough to fit in your palm?
The tuner features CATV input, Multiple input port, a USB port, and a Line-Out port. It also features a slim, nearly full function remote that looks like a replica of the remotes we used to get with Creative CD ROMs.
