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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
