Mitsubishi announces new Blu-ray recorders Mitsubishi has announced the development of two new Blu-ray recorder models that come with a touch-screen remote control. The two new and first models to the "REAL Blu-ray" series are the DVR-BZ200 and the DVR-BZ100, housing a 500GB HDD and a 250GB HDD respectively. Along with the normal remote control, Mitsubishi has also thrown in a touch-screen LCD remote control aimed at making the hardware easier to use for owners.
The controller will display necessary buttons on the LCD panel in accordance with the option chosen by the user. The models feature two tuners for each of terrestrial digital, BS digital and 110-degree CS digital broadcasts, and an analog tuner. As such, they can simultaneously record two different broadcast programs in High Definition (HD)

For top quality recording, the H.264/AVC format is used and the records support writing to DVD media without degrading quality when the AVCREC function is used. The models also support recording to and playback back from SD cards. The recorders will be first available in May in Japan with currently no suggested retail price.

3TB is more HDD space than ANYONE needs. If you truly need that then you're committing copyright infringment on a MASSIVE scale. In addition, it sounds like you need to get some friends, a life and a hobby that is based outdoors boy wonder.


".ts caps I have 'backed up'" my ass!!!
