Elgato has just released – or to be technically correct, re-released – the latest addition to its line of digital TV tuners for PCs and Macs. The HDHomeRun is a rebranded dual tuner that has been sold by SiliconDust for nearly five years now and also sold in its previous incarnation by Elgato since mid-2007. The device has however received an update and is a little smaller and sexier than the original model, but still offers PC and Mac users the same ability to watch and record HDTV over a local wireless network.  Read More

Now, the company has announced that its Auto-Tune processing technology is being developed for the electric guitar - offering six-string slingers effortless intonation, pitch perfect tuning and access to whole new worlds of otherwise unavailable tone.  Read More

The solar-powered tuner is available in a number of brightly colored silicon skins

When not in use, a guitar tuner is unlikely to see the light of day and is destined to spend much of its life inside a gig bag or hard case. But not giving Tascam's new tuner access to nice, bright sunlight is very bad form indeed. The battery inside the tiny TC-1S is solar charged so if it goes flat, then so do you...  Read More

The new Moxi HD DVR has three tuners and 500GB of storage which can be expanded to 6.5TB. ...

It seems that these days one tuner just isn't enough in a DVR. While not as huge as Sony’s Type X digital recorder with seven tuners and 1TB of recording space, the Moxi HD DVR has three turners (which is one better than most other PVRs, including the TiVo). This means you can record two shows and watch another, or, be prepared for that very rare night on TV when there are three shows worth recording simultaneously. Hey, you can even play back a fourth show and watch that while all that recording is going on in the background. And there’s no monthly or lifetime service fees with Moxi units.  Read More
