The PCTV HD Ultimate Stick External USB HDTV Tuner from Pinnacle allows you to receive over-the-air HDTV broadcasts right onto your desktop. The tuner features an external USB interface, integrated tuning and the ability to import video from composite or S-Video sources. The device also supports standard definition broadcast and cable television signals, making it an extremely versatile solution. It allows you to watch, record and playback recorded video, making it an excellent addition to your Media Center PC or notebook.

Plug and Play
The tuner features integrated flash memory for software storage. This allows you to use the tuner without having to install special software on your system; simply run the FlashPVR software directly from the stick. The stick even features enough storage space to store two hours of video!
HDTV Tuner
This USB tuner adds an HDTV tuner to your computer, letting you take full advantage of the high-quality format. Network HDTV broadcasts are available over the air for free in most areas. In many cases, all you'll have to do is connect an HDTV antenna to the card to receive the signal.
PVR Functionality
The tuner comes bundled with Pinnacle FlashPVR software, which features an Electronic TV Programming Guide. Users can schedule TV recording by searching for keywords or using an electronic program guide. You can even schedule recording of an entire season of a TV show with a single click.
DVD Archiving
You can easily archive your recorded media to DVD to help you conserve hard drive space. You'll even be able to record video directly to DVD.
Remote Control
You wouldn't be watching TV without a remote control in hand. The included remote allows you to quickly change channels and navigate through the PVR software. This makes watching TV on your computer as easy as watching TV on your TV.
