Moovida Audio Video Organizer Player

Have a bunch of video and audio files scattered on your computer? Turn Moovida loose and it will not only find all these files on your computer, it will match them against the Moovida database so you’ll have a nice display icon and important info like genre, director or artist, year, actor and other filters you specify. Then you can search on this data to find the movie or music you want. And Moovida can play every major video or audio format as well as many minor ones. Next up for Moovida is social networking so you can share comments on what you are watching with just your inner circle or the whole wide world.  It’s a free download. www.moovida.com

If you were wondering why there were no small or portable TVs when OTA (over the air ) TV went digital here in the US the reason was because the technical specification was still being finalized. Delivering a TV signal to a moving TV set requires additional signal processing.  We are now seeing TVs and receivers coming to market that conform to the ATSC A/153 spec aka ATSC M/H  (Mobile/Handheld)

The Hauppauge WinTV aero-m Dual Mode USB Receiver recieves both the ATSC M/H signal and the regular ATSC signal (A/53) for stationary TVs.  So you can watch TV on your laptop out by the pool, in a moving car or any place the ATSC M/H signal is broadcast.

If you’re on the move, you’ll use the ATSC M/H mode.  If you’re stationary, you can use either ATSC M/H or HD.    The aero-m has both a telescoping antenna and a terminal for an aftermarket antenna.  A remote control and antenna cable are included.  We’ll be doing a detailed review very soon.   www.hauppauge.com
