AVerMedia debuts AVerTVHD Duet Dual TV Tuner
AverMedia has rolled out its latest device, the AVerTVHD Duet dual TV tuner which is forward looking since it works with the yet unreleased Windows 7 operating system. The AVerTVHD Duet is able to receive over-the-air HD Digital TV signals (ATSC) or unencrypted digital cable (ClearQAM), letting you choose between recording two programs simultaneously or recording just one while watching another when you have more time than usual to spare. The PCI Express interface is used since it will be faster than a traditional PCI connection, while a Picture-in-Picture feature allows you to watch TV while working simultaneously. Depending on your budget, the $70 version comes with just the Tuner itself while $90 will net you the Tuner alongside AVer’s MediaCenter application that enables access to PVR-like features including pausing, rewinding and recording live TV as well as a program schedule and time shift capabilities.
