    Thanks Parker! This looks really cool, hopefully I will be chosen for testing.

    And thanks to USBTV for going through the HTF. You picked a great place to find testers for your product.

    I'll be curious to see how this compares to Apple TV.

    It could be interesting. Let's see how it works and plays with my new iMac.

    I signed up as well. I hope they send me one as I am dying for this EXACT type of technology. This would work great for my application.

    I hope this does not come across as trolling. I hope not. It certainly looks like a cool idea and product. Maybe good for taking video to the grandparents house.

    However, is there much of a demand for a composite video device? I would think most of those wanting to hook up their PC to TV would want HD?

    Maybe that will be available. Add HD capabilities and several video codecs and I will be there - QUICK! VOB would be super cool!

    Most of the people at HTF who are looking to hook their PCs to their television want HD but we're not average consumers. USBTV is targeting their product at the millions of consumers who pay billions of dollars annually to download lower than CD quality audio tracks to their iPods.

    I signed up. I wanted this because I'm getting a computer, and I'd be better off just using my TV instead of buying a monitor. I hope I get to test this! How long does it take for them to reply?

    No idea. Signed up when this message first went up, so 3 weeks waiting now.

    No, but I'll be watching my mailbox.

    What was the subject header of the mail?
