Review: Plextor ConvertX PVR PX-TV100U

Introduction




The Convert X PVR PX-TV100U (who thinks up these names?) is marketed toward more casual PC users who just want a simple way to watch and record TV shows on their desktop machine or laptop. You can certainly call it a PVR product, but I think adding the HTPC moniker is a stretch at best--and as stated earlier, it's not intended for that group of users.

Points which we are curious to have a look at today are the portability and simplicity offered by the high speed USB 2.0 connectability, and the option to record directly to the much smaller file size offered by DivX. We are also eager to see what impact on system overhead the software encoding in both MPEG and DivX will have. Last, what is SageTV lite going to be like? We will answer all these questions and a few more.
