The side panel contains MMI extend to AV input and multi-media as DVD/PS2/XBOX. The speakers and five buttons: Menu, Volume up/down, and Channel +/- are located on the top of the TV Box.



Overall, the design is compact and it looks good too. It will reduce clutter on your desk, as most of the ports are located on the rear panel.

Setup and Performance

Setting up Gadmei TV Box TV2810E with your computer is child’s play. It is a PnP device, which means you will not need any software to use it. We used TV2810E TV Tuner with the Asus VH222H monitor and it seamlessly turned the 21.5-inch monitor into an HDTV. The picture was bright, clear and noiseless. Gadmie’s built-in stereo speakers are loud but you will probably want to use an external speaker. We used F&D F6000 5:1 speaker system, because, F6000 lets you switch between computer audio and TV or PSP/Xbox/DVD with a simple push of a button. The sound output was more than impressive.
