Miglia TVMini HD+ brings TV, DVR functions to Mac

On the same day Apple unveiled final plans for its Apple TV offering to bring Mac content to television, Miglia Technology announced a product to bring TV to the Mac, with its new TVMini HD+.

The USB device imports analog CableTV, unencrypted digital cable (ClearQAM) and free-to-air HDTV (ATSC) signals to a Mac. TVMini HD+ plugs into a USB 2.0 port to watch and record TV in 10-bit video and stereo sound. It also includes a remote control and sports Composite, S-Video, and stereo audio inputs.

Digital Video Recorder (DVR) features include the ability to play, pause, rewind, and record live TV; schedule future recordings; consult the integrated electronic programming guide; edit recorded clips to remove advertisements; and DVD burning.

System requirements for TVMini HD+ include Mac OS X 10.4. HDTV programs require Macs with either Dual G5 or Intel Core Duo processors.

TVMini HD+ will be available at the end of February 2007; Miglia has not yet set pricing.
