Plextor ConvertXPVR

By Wan Chi Lau

Make your own Tivo? With the Plextor ConvertXPVR...you can turn your Mac or PC into a digital personal video recorder.

What can you do with a PVR? Just like a Tivo, you can watch, pause, and record live TV, but on your computer monitor! You can also use it to record shows the way you do with a VCR or DVR and play it back on your computer or the new generation of handhelds and media players.
