Doghouse Releases the RoverTv Recorder

Doghouse Electronics has unveiled the first-of-a-kind RoverTv, a super smart, super skinny portable media recorder and player that records directly from TV without a computer. Available in the 3.5-inch "Big Screen" and the 4-inch "wide-screen", RoverTv also offers another industry first-it's the first of its size portable media recorder and player that fills the surface of the device with screen rather than controls. RoverTv's unique design places the controls on the outer edge, maximizing display size. RoverTv allows consumers to record directly from TV, DVD, CD, FM or computer and accommodates MP3, MP4, WAV files and more. RoverTv supports TiVo To Go for viewing content recorded to TiVo and can download content from iTunes, BurnLounge and other electronic media providers. RoverTv is equipped to store JPEG/BMP/GIF photos, videos and presentations.

RoverTv features a Samsung TFT screen, crisp video resolution (320x240 for the Big Screen, 480 x 272 for the Wide Screen), USB port, AV input/output and FM radio receiver. RoverTv is powered by a rechargeable, built-in lithium ion battery that lasts a minimum of 12 hours for uninterrupted audio or 6 hours of video. Video stored in RoverTv can be viewed on any television up to 42" via the AV output, or on PC. RoverTv includes USB cord, battery charger, AV cable, premium TXB ear buds, one 1Gig SD card and one 2Gig SD card, enough capacity to store eleven hours of television or 4200 songs.
