Hauppauge has released a new freeview TV tuner card for PCs and laptops. Called the WinTV Nova-t USB2 the device aims to offer owners the chance to watch digital TV on their PC in a window or full screen, and record to disk for later playback or burning to DVD.

Priced at £79.99, the Nova-t USB can record programmes to the PC's hard drive (aprox 1Gb per hour) for later viewing. Programmes stored to disk can also be burned to DVD or to CD as a VCD file, and viewed on a domestic DVD player.

The Nova-t USB2 includes a remote control, USB2 connectivity and fortunately enough the software to recieve Freeview TV and digital radio channels.
