The DVICO TViX M-6600N is the company's latest PVR, featuring 802.11n wireless networking.

Korean personal video recorder manufacturer DVICO has announced the launch the newest product in the TViX line, the M-6600N. This premium PVR includes Wi-Fi connectivity and support for all recent video codecs. It features an internal 3.5in desktop hard drive to store content.

The DVICO TViX M-6600N supports 802.11n wireless networking support. This is a significant upgrade from the 54 megabits per second 802.11g Wi-Fi found in older TViX units such as the TViX R-3300. The 300Mbps bandwidth of 802.11n theoretically allows Full HD 1080p movies to be streamed without on-the-fly compression or buffering. Other media players from small companies like Astone have supported 802.11n wireless networking, although this has been implemented through the use of USB dongles.

The DVICO TViX M-6600N comes with a 1TB hard drive as standard. While the 1TB version of the M-6600N costs $699, the TViX unit can also be purchased without a hard drive installed for $499. The DVICO TViX M-6600N is available now and is distributed by Also Technology.

Controversy has erupted over the inclusion of a Freeview logo on the box of the DVICO TViX M-6600N. Freeview is the industry body representing the country's free-to-air digital television channels, and a recently released document states that Freeview Australia has no association with DVICO and that the TViX M-6600N has not been certified. Because the DVICO TViX M-6600N offers ad-skipping capabilities, in the form of a fast-forward scan, it is not likely to be certified by Freeview.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
