"Reception In Motion" - Superior Performance Free Live TV at Vehicle's Lawful Speed


Price: $99.99

(srp $188.99 You Save $37)


Simple, small, and easy to use, the USB Mobile TV Tuner is a USB adapter that fits in your Windows notebook or netbook's USB port and provides you with ATSC TV. This adapter is based on ATSC M/H broadcast standard and can receive both standard definition and high definition ATSC broadcasts. Plus, it has a built-in telescoping digital TV antenna.

When using this USB adapter with the included TV software for Windows, you can record broadcasts, such as local TV news, traffic info, the weather, sporting events, or entertainment programs, and you can view what you record later when more convenient for you.

The adapter also features a built-in MCX jack for an external antenna, a MCX to F connector adapter, a credit card remote control, and a USB extender cable.

The Mobile TV Tuner p/n DMT1 is not a simple terrestrial receiver. It has a powerful Doppler Effect Correction (See explanation below) feature to prevent lose of TV signal in moving vehicle. This problem is typical to many car TV tuners. Consequently these "regular" terrestrial tuners can be used only when the vehicle is stopped. On the other hand: the DMT1 deliver excellent digital pictures while the vehicle is moving.

Don't Be Fooled! Not every USB low priced tuner is a real "Mobile TV Tuner": Most of them have a regular ATSC tuner and will work only while the vehicle is stopped. There will be no reception as the vehicle starts moving because the important ATSC-M/H component is missing.

When you use the DMT1 Mobile TV Tuner, you get the best reception the dual tuner can offer: The ATSC-M/H tuner component required for reception while the car is moving and a built-in regular ATSC component for maximum number of over the air TV stations while the vehicle is parked.

What is Doppler Effect?

The Doppler effect (or Doppler shift), named after Austrian physicist Christian Doppler who proposed it in 1842 in Prague, is the change in frequency of a wave for an observer moving relative to the source of the wave. It is commonly heard when a vehicle sounding a siren or horn approaches, passes, and recedes from an observer. The received frequency is higher (compared to the emitted frequency) during the approach, it is identical at the instant of passing by, and it is lower during the recession.

Where To Use?
