HAUPPAUGE DIGITAL has announced the latest in its line of TV tuner products for the PC, the WinTV HVR-4000, the first TV tuner with a quad mode tuner.

According to Hauppauge Digital, the tuner plugs into any desktop PC's PCI slot and connects to an aerial or satellite dish - once connected, users will be able to receive all the UK TV broadcast formats, including analogue, Freeview digital, satellite and HD satellite.

With the product's HD satellite feature - dubbed DVB-S2 - users can pick up all the free-to-air HD programmes they fancy, not to mention being able to record them to disk if the mood so takes.

Yehia Oweiss, UK manager of Hauppauge Digital reckons that HD will be taking off in a big way, but at the moment it's only available via subscription. With the product owners will be able to catch all their HD goodness without a subscription.

The product should be available sometime this month for those of us Blighty-side, and will retail for 170 quid. Check out the Hauppauge website here. µ
