VBox DTA-151 ATSC HDTV Tuner Review

Posted on 23 November 2004 by

HTPCnews has posted a favorable review of the VBox DTA-151 ATSC HDTV Tuner. From my reading of the article, there is no hardware encoding (rampy note: with DTV broadcast there’s no need for a hardware encoder just stream the digital bits right to the hard disk) , so it’s all software via Windows Media Center Edition 2005 for PVR functionality. I found it priced around $350.

Here’s the bottom line:

Pros:
Easy to setup
Good Image Quality

Cons:
A little vanilla (hopefully the price stays low with this then it’s ok to be vanilla)
