CrestaTV universal TV tuner chip reaching manufacturers

I’m not exactly sure if this will have any actual ramifications on the HTPC world, but it can only help I think. Time will tell to see what’s actually developed with it.


The days of a universal laptop TV tuner are almost upon us, as CrestaTech begin sampling their CrestaTV “universal broadband receiver”. Packing not only support for DVBT, ATSC, Cable QAM, NTSC and PAL TV standards, the CrestaTV also receives FM radio and features a GPS receiver, and could allow travellers to watch TV on their notebooks no matter where in the world they are.
