The vendor’s latest digital video recorder can manage a neat trick: simultaneously recording two channels. The secret is a pair of TV tuners inside the box, unlike the single tuner that is found in almost all other similar products. When in simultaneous recording mode one show will be stored on the hard drive, which has a capacity of 120GB, and one on a DVD disc, which can be either as a DVD-R, RW or RAM disc. The recorder has five different recording modes meaning a single-sided DVD can store between one hour and six hours and the hard drive between 30 hours and 120 hours of video. The player can be found on sale now in Japan from about $US1100.
