Computex 2006 AverMedia is one of the first companies to pick up on the increasing ease of making Mac-compatible products, and announced it will soon have drivers ready for one of its USB TV tuners to allow it to work with Macs.

AverMedia claimed the product is the smallest USB TV-tuner to date. It looks much like any other USB based TV-tuner, although to match the Mac colour scheme it's white. It supports analogue and DVB-T transmissions.

Other products on display were an Express Card 34 DVB-T tuner - that's the narrow Express Card standard - which size wise is the type that should work with the new Apple Mac Books, but there was no information if drivers where going to be made available.

A DVB-H model was also on display in the same form factor, as well as combined analogue and digital Express Card 54 tuners. AverMedia also had a DVB-H SDIO solution, but it was not as neat as the one from Philips as it had a rather large "lump" at the top of the SD interface.

Several PCI Express cards were also on show with various DVB solutions. One card offered DVB-T, DVB-S and analogue in a single card.

AverMedia was also displaying a mini PCI Express card, which would be used with the latest generation of laptops or even some small form factor PCs.

As we reported earlier, the G965 and the older 945G chipsets support an ADD2 card. This uses the integrated graphics, but outputs the signal through a DVI or TV out connector.

AverMedia has gone one better and fitted dual analogue TV tuners to an ADD2 card which has been designed specifically for low cost MCE PCs. ®
