Pinnacle Offers HD on a PC Stick
Coming to market later this month is the PCTV HD Pro Stick from Pinnacle, a device designed for desktop and laptop computers to receive HD signals (which usually means no compression) directly over-the-air or from a digital cable box.

The "stick" is a USB HD tuner and looks nearly identical to a typical USB flash drive. The new device reportedly plugs into a standard USB port and comes with its own remote. On one end of the device opposite the USB plug is a connecter for a digital cable line to receive 1080i, or to connect a standard cable line or antenna to pick up other DTV signals.

Included software allows most recent Windows-equipped computer hard drives (and Macs, too, soon) to serve as HD DVRs. Pinnacle says the Pro Stick also can save SD video directly to a standard DVD (assuming one has a burner), to iPods, and to Sony PlayStation Portables. The device will retail for about $130.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
