OnAir Solution GT USB HDTV Receiver/Recorder Reviewajmatson - January 22, 2008
The OnAir Solution GT HDTV USB Receiver/Recorder does do what it is designed for, which is watching and recording TV. The interface leaves something to be desired as it is plain and very basic, but it gets the job done. Recording allows you to schedule future shows with the ability to control the size and the quality with a few well used presets. The signal was very clear for the Digital HD, which was nice to see since the analog was always blurry or fuzzy. Also, the OnAir GT worked just flawlessly in Windows XP, as well as in Vista. Even though it is not Vista certified, I had no problems with it at all.
Timeshift is amazing. As busy as the average person is today, most never get to watch a full program without interruptions. The ability to pause for those interruptions, or rewind to get a double take on that ever important fight scene is a big plus for the OnAir GT. For the price though, I think it is a little expensive, but it does bring those few over-the-air HD channels to your computer. This has become a part of my computer bag of goodies for use when I travel for work and which I use constantly.
