TEAC America launches USB 2.0 TV Tuner/PVR

From engadget:

“TEAC announced the launch of its new USB 2.0 TV Tuner/PVR today, apparently the smallest device of its kind on the market (so small, it seems, that they couldn’t even take a picture of it). The tuner will let anyone still jonesing for a TiVo turn their PC into a full-fledged time shifting, video capturing, DVD burning machine. And it’s bus-powered so there’s no need for batteries or an AC adapter, although we wonder what kind of toll it takes on a notebook battery. The unit, which also comes with a remote, will be shown at CES and available to consumers on Janurary 1st. No word on pricing just yet.”
