Scouring the web often has unexpected surprises and I tripped over one earlier this afternoon on Harvey Norman’s website. The D Link Micro USB TV Tuner for a mere $15 (limited to one per customer) while stocks last.
I say while stocks last because at that price they’ll sell pretty quickly and with the age of the device, it’s fair to say that Harvey’s likely only have a small amount of stock if they’re limiting customer purchases. This isn’t the first time that they’ve been put out on special either.
Last September a number of the Ausdroid team took up the offer and it’s a handy piece of kit. While there are some limitations on the software functionality – the app doesn’t work on devices running Android 7.0+ – the tuner itself is very simple to use. It’s a microUSB connection, so if you’re rocking a USB-C connector on your phone, you may experience issues.
I’ve found the tuner quite useful when travelling to keep an eye on the local news or for entertainment, so it may be just the thing if you have this sort of requirement.
