TV Stick With Free Memory

Asus’s new hybrid TV tuner for PCs and Notebooks

ASUS’s Express TV stick is claimed to feature high-quality digital (DVBT) and analog TV signal reception, plus a host of versatile utilities, which allows users to watch TV and enjoy access to multimedia entertainment wherever they may be.

By inserting the stick into the computer’s USB 2.0 port, it will automatically install software to enable recording or viewing of high-quality digital and analogue TV programs. It is the world’s first hybrid TV stick to come equipped with free memory that incorporates the pre-installed software, claims ASUS.

A user plugs it into their PC or notebook, whereupon the auto-installation function will install the driver and run the UI automatically.

Another feature is that it comes with 4GB of free added memory. Users can utilise the extra storage just like any other thumb drive for data transfers. This makes it convenient for users to record and store programs onto the stick, then share them with their family or friends.
Users will be able to watch TV programs on-the-go by plugging stick into a USB slot. Without the need for any external power adapter, the built-in ASUS Pop-Up TV technology will instantly display TV channels without requiring manually launched programs.

This TV tuner provides a useful Windows Vista gadget tool that allows users to watch and record live TV directly onto their Windows Vista sidebar. This manifests as a small window on the right- hand side of the sidebar, where users can watch and record TV, or obtain snapshots. Users can do this while they are surfing the Internet or while they are doing work.
The video size can be enlarged to full-screen whenever they wish—allowing them to fully enjoy their TV programs at any time.
