High Quality MPEG-1/ MPEG-2 (DVD) and MPEG-4 Recording
TV2GO can be used for recording any Video (Video-in connection) or TV show (TV-Tuner) in DVD quality using the bundled encoding software supporting MPEG-1, MPEG-2 (DVD) and MPEG-4 formats. With the included MPEG editor previously recorded shows or any external video stream can be edited and burned onto a DVD by using DVD Maker.
TV Remote Control
TV2GO includes a 28-key card type remote control as convenient as using a regular remote control.
No Power Adapter needed
TV2GO does not need any external power source at all. The low power consumption design allows TV2GO to use USB bus power.
