It is designed to receive High Definition Digital TV Over-the-Air (ATSC) or Unencrypted Digital Cable (ClearQAM*) signals directly to your PC.

The recently released AVerTVHD Volar MAX is the ideal travel mate for viewing High Definition TV while on the go and provides users with a true TV to PC or Mac experience. The AVerTV Hybrid Volar MAX is a PC-only device and offers the same performance and features as the AVerTVHD Volar MAX, but also provides users with the ability to toggle between digital and analog signals.
