Hybrid Digital/IPTV HD PVR Set Top Box with MaxLinear DVB-T2 Tuner

MaxLinear Inc. and 3view Ltd. today announced a joint collaboration on the 3view HD Digital TV Recorder, a hybrid IPTV and DVB-T2 set top box that enables UK consumers to receive free-to-air HD channels and Internet content.

The 3view HD Digital TV Recorder includes a 500GB hard drive, dual MxL5007T DVB-T2 broadcast tuners and broadband connectivity. The receiver enables consumers to view and record a wide variety of free content in the UK, including 50+ TV channels, all free-to-air HD channels, YouTube videos, and other Internet protocol TV (IPTV) content. The integrated Sky Player and BBC iPlayer allow users to “catch up” on previously broadcasted TV shows on these two networks. In addition, the receiver provides a simple user interface to view personal photos and home videos, stream digital music, and interact with friends & family through Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites.

MaxLinear's MxL5007T digital terrestrial tuner measures only 5 mm x 5mm in a 32-pin QFN package, providing a small, flexible and low power front end solution that's ideal for multi-tuner terrestrial STBs and digital TV designs. The tuner uses MaxLinear's proprietary digital CMOS technology to meet the stringent performance requirements of the UK DTG DBook6.1 for DVB-T2 receivers and legacy DVB-T receivers. The device features integrated channel filtering and on-chip 94dB gain to deliver high quality signal reception of weak signals even under conditions of extreme analog and digital interference typically found in terrestrial applications.

The MxL5007T has a flexible output intermediate frequency (IF) ranging from 4 to 44 MHz to support a wide variety of demodulators for DVB-T2, ATSC, ATSC M/H, and ISDB-T applications. An integrated on-chip loop through function greatly simplifies STB designs for multi-tuner applications such as PVRs, media servers/gateways, and televisions supporting picture-in-picture.
