RoverTV Records TV, Audio to SD Card
Wednesday, June 21st, 2006 at 4:05 PM - by
Doghouse Electronics on Wednesday introduced RoverTV, a portable device that records audio and video to an SD flash memory card. RoverTV is available in 3.5-inch (US$299) and 4-inch ($349) versions. It can record directly from a TV signal, DVD, CD, FM radio, or computer, and it's compatible with the MP3, MP4, WAV, JPEG, BMP, GIF and other audio, video, and image file formats.
RoverTV can also download content from TiVo To Go as well as from iTunes, BurnLounge and other online sites. Its resolution is 320 x 240 for the smaller version and 480 x 272 for the larger one, which has a widescreen display. Each model also includes a USB port, AV input/output, and FM radio reception. A rechargeable Lithium Ion battery allows for up to 12 hours of audio or 6 hours of video, according to Doghouse.
Each RoverTV unit comes with a USB cord, battery charger, AV cable, TXB earbuds, and 1GB and 2GB SD cards. A Doghouse representative confirmed that, while the company's Web site only lists Windows system requirements, RoverTV is Mac compatible.
