Here s the bottom line, folks: this is a run-of-the-mill PVR and probably the best thing about it is how pretty it looks. The PVR is based on an anodized aluminum shell that would match perfectly with a Mac tower or Powerbook of sorts. It features a 125-channel analog TV tuner and the ability to use digital cable from composite or s-video connections. The software has the ability to encode the video into various codecs including MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and DivX. Unfortunately, the software has its fair share of bugs and errors to hinder a full PVR'ing experience, but it's a start. It'll have to do until FrontRow 2.0 hits the scene.
