Doghouse Electronics have joined the PMP fray with the Rover TV, a portable media player and recorder that keeps things small by eschewing the more common hard drive-based storage in favor of smaller (in more ways than one) SD cards. The Rover's available in two models that are virtually identical except for the screen: the $299 "Big Screen" model packs a 3.5-inch TFT screen with a resolution of 320 x 240, while the $349 Rover TV Wide Screen has a 4-inch TFT with a 480 x 272 resolution. Both models will let you record directly from a television or any other video source (encoded to MPEG-4) and support TiVoToGo for viewing TiVo-recorded content. Naturally, you can also use it as an MP3/WMA player, as well as a radio thanks to the built-in FM tuner (which you can also record from). Doghouse was also considerate enough to include not one but two SD cards with the device (a 1GB and a 2GB), which should give you about 11 hours of video recording time all together.
