Most TV tuners on the market today are in the form of PCI Cards. This is especially true of HDTV tuners or dual channel tuners (for recording and watching different programs simutaneously). However, consumers are increasingly hesitant to open up their PCs to install these cards. Furthermore, these cards cannot be used with set top boxes or notebook computers. Therefore an external USB solution is also needed. The PLX Technology NET2282 is optimized for migrating PCI based designs, like TV tuners, to USB. It also has enough performance bandwidth to transfer uncompressed HDTV content.
