The Xbox One Over-the-Air HDTV tuner is now available

xbox-one-hdtv-tuner-hauppauge

This past year, I chopped my cable lineup down to a mere shadow of its former self. As I looked at the lineup, I realized that what I was getting back wasn’t worth the $60 or $80 a month I was paying for it. But I’ve been hanging on to the meager local package ever since. Now might be the time to cut the last cord: the digital over-the-air TV tuner for Xbox One is now available.

Microsoft announced this week that the device, provided by Hauppauge, is available for purchase online and through Microsoft stores.

The tuner, when coupled with an HDTV antenna, will pull in any local HD channels. What the tuner provides that just the HDTV antenna doesn’t is access to the Xbox One’s TV features. Up to 30 minutes of live TV can be paused, TV channels can be snapped, and features like OneGuide and Kinect navigation can be used. On top of that, TV streaming is available on the Xbox One Smartglass app on smartphones and tablets, as well as the upcoming Windows 10, meaning that even if someone is playing an Xbox game in the next room, someone can watch TV and change channels.

If you already have an HD antenna, you can pick up the device on its own for $59.99, but there’s a combo package available as well that includes an antenna and the device.  The included antenna is the Mohu Leaf 50 antenna, which looks to retail for $70 on its own, making the combo pack a pretty good deal for a first-time buyer. Mohu also provides a site that will show you, by punching in your address, what channels you should be able to receive using the device.

The Xbox has some pretty cool TV functionality, and this device might just be the best way to take advantage of it, especially if they go ahead with the rumored TV recording capability we’ve heard about.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

¿Alguna vez has visto un ornitorrinco? Es probablemente el animal más extraño que jamás encuentres. Es un mamífero de sangre caliente, sin embargo, pone huevos. Está cubierto con la piel, pero se divierte un pico de pato. Y sus pies palmeados también parecen má…

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
