I was excited when I received the OnAir Solution GT because there have been times I wish I could have recorded a TV show digitally and watched it on my laptop while traveling for business. Sure, there are so many TIVOs out there and your cable company has DVRs, so you may be thinking why would you need this, right? Can you transfer those recording to your PC and is it in Hi-Def? That is the biggest gripe I have with DVRs, that you cannot watch your recordings on the PC or portable devices right after you record it.
Enter the OnAir Solution GT USB HDTV Receiver and Recorder. Wow, what a mouthful for such a compact device. So what is the OnAir Solution GT, you ask? It is a small box that connects to either an antenna source or a coaxial connection to bring TV to your computer. With the OnAir GT you can not only watch TV on your PC, but you can record it, and all in High Definition.
The OnAir Solution GT HDTV Receiver comes packaged nicely in the box. The front of the box shows the receiver with a person watching TV on their computer. Also on the front are some of the specs of the OnAir GT. Looking over at the back shows some of the features, a quick setup guide and information about the bundled software included with the GT.
Flip open the front of the box and it reveals what you really want. Included with the OnAir GT are the manuals, software CD, carrying case for the GT, antenna, remote control and batteries, USB 2.0 cable, and S-video/component cable.
