AVerMedia USB tuner works with Mac or PC

Quote:
AVerMedia has announced the release of its Volar MAX USB HD TV tuner which has the ability to receive HD Digital TV or Unencrypted Digital Cable (ClearQAM), up to 1080i.

With the accompanying software, users can watch HD programming on their Mac or PC. The AVerTVHD Volar MAX is available now for U.S. $69.99 from the company's website.
Another USB tuner. Don't know how notable Mac capability or ClearQAM support is anymore but for those that might be interested!

AnyTV Hybrid USB2 Tuner

There's also a US$41 (delivered!) "AnyTV Hybrid" USB2 tuner available at dealextreme.com, with modern generation ATSC / NTSC chipset, and decent software for Windows. Doesn't yet work on Linux, though.

In my tests here, it was note quite as sensitive as the more expensive Hauppauge HVR-950Q USB2 tuner, but better than the HDHomeRun (2nd generation) and the HVR-1600 card I have here.

Cheers

"AnyTV Hybrid" in vista?

Can you tell me if the "AnyTV Hybrid" from dealextreme works in Vista 32bit? Is there software and drivers included with it?

Yes, yes, and yes. It all even works quite well.
My neighbour got one from D.E., and I helped set it up (to satisfy my own curiosity).

Good to know it is a decent tuner.
I was tempted to buy it, but went with an HVR-1250 back when it was on sale for cheaper than the exchanged price from DX
