DivXNetworks and Plextor announced that the Plextor ConvertX PX-TV402U Personal Video Recorder (PVR) with built-in TV tuner is the first official DivX Certified Personal Video Recorder to reach the market.
The new ConvertX PX-TV402U captures and encodes broadcast, cable, or satellite TV onto a computer hard drive. Users can watch, pause, and record live TV, or use an integrated electronic programming guide to schedule recordings with a single mouse click. In addition to encoding programs, movies, and sports events from a TVsource, ConvertX also supports capturing home video from such sources as camcorders, DVD players, and VCRs through its built-in composite and S-Video inputs.
Before certifying ConvertX, the DivXNetworks expert team of video engineers subjected the device to a rigorous testing process to ensure high performance and interoperability with all versions of DivX video. The ConvertX Model PX-TV402U will be available in late September for $199 at www.divx.com/hardware
