The USTV-1 is a windows-compatible TV tuner that connects to your PC or laptop via USB (version 2.0 or 1.1) and is bundled with "Feather-X" software to enable television playback and recording on computer.

Small (102.2 x 45 x 24mm) and light (80g), the USTV-1 draws all the power it need through the USB connection and even includes a remote control unit.

Unfortunately for readers outside Japan, Canopus has no plans to sell the USTV1 in the in the worldwide market.

The device is due for Japanese release in late November at an estimated price of 14,800 Yen (AUD $190).
