Advanced Micro Devices has released its new HDTV tuner that enables reception of high-definition television across the world thanks to enhanced compatibility with different broadcast systems. The new ATI Theater 750 PC TV chip is compatible with both PCI Express and USB buses, hence, will be available both as add-on card as well as USB stick.

“ATI Theater HD 750 combines AMD’s longstanding reputation for video expertise with consumer demand for a cost effective, easy to use and high quality TV on the PC experience,” said Matt Skynner, vice president and general manager of GPU division at AMD products group.

ATI Theater 750 PC TV chip is compatible with HDTV/DTV/analog broadcast signals including NTSC, PAL/SECAM, ATSC, ClearQAM and DVB-T, hence, with proper connectors, add-on cards or USB sticks powered by the chip can be used virtually anywhere in the world.

When paired with ATI Radeon HD 4000-series graphics chip, the new ATI Theater 750 can enable real-time transcoding of captured HDTV stream into popular video formats, such as H.264, AVI, MPEG, DivX, WMV and MPEG4, for use on portable media devices. With appropriate software, consumers can also schedule recordings and watch, pause and rewind live TV programs.

“ATI Theater HD 750, in combination with ATI Radeon™ graphics and AMD mobile technology-based notebooks, provides a simplified, high-quality home-theater solution,” said Mr. Skynner.

ATI Theater HD 750 is scheduled to be available from supporting manufacturers later this year in a variety of solutions including PCI Express add-in cards, USB “stick”, and others.

What we need are TV Tuners that are cable-card compatible made available to the retail market. Currently you can only purchase either a machine with one installed or used OEM parts on Ebay.
