Miglia intros ‘content collection hub’ for iPod, Apple TV

image

Miglia Technology today announced the TVMax+, a new “content collection hub” for use with the video iPod, Apple TV and Macs. The TVMax+ allows users to record video content straight to a fifth-generation iPod, Apple TV via iTunes, or a Mac. Recording modes include “iPod Better,” “iPod Best,” Apple TV, DVD-ready MPEG-2, iMovie ready MPEG-4, and DivX. The Mac-only device also doubles as a digital TV tuner—allowing you to watch, pause and record TV shows—as well as digitizes VHS tapes to DVD using real-time MPEG-2 compression. The TVMax+ sells for £149 (about $288).

Excellent!  My 19” HDTV doesn’t have an ATSC tuner, and I was looking at something to record OTA HD channels to view with the Apple TV.

Very interesting, I’m using an EyeTV 200 right now with my Mac mini.  This looks like a nice step up for the digital tuner as well as the mini-like form factor.

I just realized this thing has an analog tuner, so it will be worthless in two years.  WTF?

It’ll accept a signal from a digi or Sky box so won’t be useless.

it better had a digital tuner in order to gain FCC approval:

>> By March 2007, all TVs (and other devices that are designed to receive broadcast television signals) are required to have digital tuners built in. (http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/digitaltv.html)
