Elgato revamps USB tuner line-up

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Mac TV tuner specialist Elgato has revamped its entire line of USB sticks, kitting them out with new looks and new features.

Elgato EyeTV Hybrid

Elgato's EyeTV Hybrid: last fling for analogue TV?

The EyeTV Hybrid, Elgato's analogue and digital product, will pick up FM radio and DVB-C signals if you're in an area that uses them. As per the previous version, the new Hybrid has a secondary input to allow you to digitise content coming from DVD and VHS players, and other sources.

The EyeTV Diversity has two tuners too, but they're both digital - it can use them both to boost week signals. The new model gets updated tilt-and-swivel antennae and a splitter to allow a single aerial to feed both tuners.

Elgato EyeTV DTT

EyeTV DTT: slimmer

Finally, the EyeTV DTT digital-only tuner has been slimmed down to stop it blocking adjacent USB ports - handy for notebook users.

All three tuners will comes with EyeTV 3, the latest generation Elgato's DVR software.

The new Hybrid and DTT go on sale in August for £99.95/€TBC and £39.95/€49.95, respectively. The new Diversity is available immediately, for £79.95/€99.95.
