TubeStick on Windows

by Volker Weber

Remember the TubeStick?

Window's Media Center allows you to watch live TV. With the TubeStick Windows Drivers there's no additional software needed to use TubeStick on a PC.

hmm, will stick to my XP Pro. so far. I don't know anybody that is happy(ier) with Vista (than with XP).
any chance this works without XP MCE?

You don't have to go to Vista. XP MCE does the trick.

Looks like a nice product but it looks like their online store doesn't sell to the US market yet. Ironically, they use a US flag to indicate their English website and you can pick "United States" as your country. A tad confusing.

got that, so is there any chance this stick works without XP MCE?

Samuel Adam, 2007-07-11

Beats me. The market for an application that MS gives away as part of their operating system is probably very small.

While you are juggling OS editions, I am a happy camper on my platform. :-)

Bob, do you have DVB-T reception in the US at all?

Volker Weber, 2007-07-11

Volker: good question. Looks like DVB-T is only on a trial basis in the US. Nevermind.

Bob Congdon, 2007-07-11

There is no DVB-T available in the US. For reasons known only to themselves, US broadcasters use their own standard for digital terrestral TV (ATSC) and this is being rolled out US wide by 2009. Why they couldnt use DVB-T like everyone else I really dont know.

There is an EyeTV Hybrid for ATSC available.
