Featuring hardware MPEG2 compression, the AVerTV Cardbus MCE allows users to easily watch, pause, rewind, playback and record live TV through their MCE 2005 operating system on their laptop. The unit simply inserts into a laptop PCMCIA slot and connects to either a coaxial cable or free air antenna.
