FlyTV's Express M5 and M3 ExpressCard tuners

Ryan Block, @ryan

We're not sure how long FlyTV's actually been selling their Express M5 MST-T2A2, and M3 MST-T2 tuners, but it's among the first ExpressCard TV devices we've seen -- unfortunately if you want to tune into analog signals, it's the M5 ExpressCard 54, and not the M3 ExpressCard 34 device, you're going to have to snag (34 is the smaller standard seen in the MacBook Pro, for example). But if your machine has a 54 slot, you can view and record multiple DVB-T, digital, or analog sources simultaneously in MPEG-1/2/4 via digital antenna, S-Video, and composite in with the M5, and the same without the analog antenna on the M3. Of course, we know what would make this really useful is ATSC support, but we don't really think LifeView, the Taiwanese company who produces the FlyTV, was aiming for US soil when they launched this one.
