I recently got an opportunity to play with the VBox “Cat’s Eye” USB 3560 HDTV (ATSC) Receiver.
The unit itself is very small — about 50% bigger overall than a deck of playing cards — and couldn’t really be simpler. It has a coax connector for attatching your antenna to, a USB connector that attaches to the PC, and a little stand to hold it vertical (should you so desire). In fact, outside of the USB cable and the driver/documentation CD, there’s not anything else in the box, even.
The good news is that you don’t need much else.
Throwing caution to the wind, I tossed the CD in the drive, attached the coax from my roof antenna, and plugged it in.
