I know this was listed a while back at £79.99, then reverted to full price again. Maplins now have it at a sale price for £69.99 (instore and online). Just thought I'd let people know.

Here's some of the blurb...

PCTV To Go streams TV sources via the network to the TV viewing software on the PC. The ability to control and record your home TV from different locations is called ''PlaceShifting'' - only Pinnacle PCTV To Go lets you PlaceShift AND time-shift home TV over both a home network and the internet. For Windows Vista and XP equipped PCs, Pinnacle PCTV To Go gives you access to all the great Microsoft Windows Media Center features. It seamlessly integrates into your wired or Wi-Fi networks.
What is PlaceShifting?
PlaceShifting refers to the ability to access the TV shows you receive at home in other locations via a network connection. PlaceShifting devices take a home TV channel and convert it into a data stream that can be received by special software on a remote device, such as a PC. Most PlaceShifting devices only make the stream available over the internet. Pinnacle PCTV To Go streams TV over a home network, in addition to over the internet.

Think it allows you to watch tv over your network. I guess a bit like a media center extender. Not sure if you need a seperate tv card, I would have hoped not for that price!!!

It connects to your set top box or personal video recorder such as Sky+ and transmits the signal over your network and also a stream over the internet.

The TV signal is taken from SCART, RF or S-Video I think. It can also emulate various remote controls thus you can control the source from you remote desitination, be it another room in your house using a PC or a more distant location via the internet.

Here is a question for someone out there.
If you can connect this to a sky box does that mean as well as being able to watch sky on my pc/laptop I could also record programs and then burn them to DVD? but i doubt this would do HD quality from the Sky HD box or could it?

Chris

anyone know the answer to the above question please?

Thanks Chris

I expect that you could, not sure what program it uses to receive the tv. Obviously if it's something like media center then you should be fine.

Not sure about it being hd. Probably not I guess.

Thanks,

I'll stick with my av senders from Technika. Twenty odd quid and I can watch tv in any room of the house much like this does. Except I don't need a pc to receive the signal, a normal tv will do and it's a perfect picture, not sure how it would do over a wireless network.

Thanks Guys

Damnyou HUKD - i never knew i wanted one fo these but i bought one anyway! Looking forward to playing with my new toy.
From what i read you can record whatever you watch so will be a handy way to record some of my SKY+ stuff without cables.
