Plextor launches its first Digital TV tuner that enables users to watch digital TV anywhere via their laptop/PC.
The Plextor ConvertX PX-DVBT100U doubles as a recorder - turning any laptop into a PVR - enabling digital terrestrial TV or radio programmes to be saved to the hard disk drive with real-time or scheduled recording.
For free-to-air Digital TV and free-to-air Digital radio, simply run the software, connect via USB2.0, attach the supplied antenna and it's ready to go with Plug & Play .
As well as recording Digital TV programmes for playback, it can schedule your recordings via an easy navigation EPG with daily, weekly or once-only options. Also the time-shifting functionality means you can play, pause, record, stop, fast forward and rewind TV programmes.
In addition to providing full DVB-T support, it is even ready for the new terrestrial HDTV service. It comes complete with a remote control and users can choose to watch in a scalable window or full screen view.

- USB powered - no power adapter needed
