Neuros OSD 2 developer kit available, open source set-top for your TV

Neuros Technology has been making open source video capture and media systems for several years and I have used their Recorder 2 and OSD products to capture TV content and convert it into a format for playing back on my mobile phones, iPod, and PSP. I currently have and use the OSD, which is actually on sale right now for US$149.99 from their store, since it has more options than the older Recorder 2. Neuros recently announced that the developer kits for their OSD 2.0 are now available for US$249.99. These are still labeled developer kits because the software is not finalized and they are designed to get out and in the hands of those who will make it work well for the consumer.
