The AVerTV DVB-T Volar is compatible with both Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE) 2005 and Linux operating systems, and ships with the latest AVerTV 6 software of which includes Digital Subtitle Support, PIP/POP Setting, and Video Quality Enhancement.
The device is also economical, drawing less than 0.4 Ampere of power to maximize the battery life of a notebook computer. The AVerTV DVB-T Volar will be available in early June for $119.
