Explain the TVmicro for a MAC computer in Better detail.?
I heard great reviews of it, but how does it work. I have DISH network at my house, will the TVmicro pick it up, will it pick up standard cable at my friends house? How does it compare with Window's Media Center. I know the price is $99, but is it really worth it? It got a Five Star rating.
From Apple Web Site:
Barely the size of an iPod Shuffle, TVMicro delivers a crystal-clear picture and is compact enough to take wherever you go. Simply plug TVMicro into a free USB 2.0 port, connect your antenna or cable and start watching TV!
Powered by EyeTV 2 software, TVMicro is perfectly suited for users on the go or people wanting a quick and simple solution to watch TV on their Mac. It includes an infrared remote control for your viewing convenience. Switch channels at the press of a button, without having to use your mouse or keyboard.

Short answer Yes, it'll take the TVsignal from your house cable ytune it and feed it to your MAC, be it DISH network or your friend's cable.
In comparison, a Windows Media Center is a complete solution, roughly equivalent to a TiVo device. "watch DVDs, record TV, listen to music, share your digital photos, and more."
you can get a PC TV tuner for as little as $29.99.
a media center will run you at least $300
I'd guess it's designed for ppl with Macs who want to watch TV on their machines rather than running a TV monitor or other device.
