Using Teletext (option)
For European countries, the AVerTV Box3 provides the Teletext function which
allows users to receive digital information from TV stations that broadcast such
information. Teletext data is widely used in Europe and is transmitted along with
normal television programs. The AVerTV Box3 can decode the teletext data and
display the resulting information on your computer screen.
TV stations transmit teletext data in pages. Each page takes only a few seconds
to update, so you will surely see the very latest information. Teletext pages
contain all sorts of information, including the latest news, weather, sports,
finance, travel, TV program listings, and more.
