Elgato Intros EyeTV DTT Deluxe
Tuesday, July 8, 2008
Posted by: Brian

Elgato today announced the EyeTV DTT Deluxe, a new miniature TV tuner for Digital Terrestrial Television (DVB-T). According to the company, the EyeTV DTT Deluxe slips easily into the USB port of any Mac without blocking other devices. For areas with a strong DVB-T signal, EyeTV DTT Deluxe comes with a miniature telescopic aerial that attaches directly to the end of the micro-stick. It's an unobtrusive solution for those who wish to enjoy television on a Mac without the need for cables.

The EyeTV DTT Deluxe also includes a portable rod aerial for areas with a weaker DVB-T signal, as well as an adapter cable to connect a rooftop aerial to deal with a very weak or blocked signal. And it comes bundled with Elgato's EyeTV 3 software and a remote control.

The tuner has one quality setting, lossless. The DVB stream is recorded unaltered for full quality DVB-T content as encoded by the broadcaster. It also supports DVB-T multilingual programming and Dolby Digital sound. In areas in which HDTV is broadcast, EyeTV DTT Deluxe delivers 720p or 1080i HDTV (MPEG-2 as well as H.264/AVC).

The Elgato EyeTV DTT Deluxe is only available in Europe at this time. It's priced at €79.95 including VAT. There's no word on an ATSC version of the product for the US, but we'll keep you posted.

I'm not sure how well the telescoping antenna will work, but this sounds like a nice little tuner otherwise.

Nice hardware and all but if you're in Canada don't bother with Elgato hardware as they don't support Electronic Program Guides and don't have any plans to do so in the near future.
