Microtune Shrinks TV Tuners to Fit Inside Lifesaver Hole

Microtune, the company that makes tiny TV tuners that are hidden inside more devices than you can shake a stick at, keeps shrinking its tuners more and more. Now the company has outdone itself. Its MT2131 delivers higher performance at 65% the size of everyday tuners, and will certainly soon find its way into a variety of PVRs, TV adapters, and multimedia cards. They call this little hotshot three-in-one because it can handle garden-variety NTSC TV signals, ATSC (which encompasses all the HDTV standards), and then digital cable-ready (DCR) standards, too. All this TV tuning goodness for $3 apiece? Remarkable. Coming soon to a video-capable device near you.
