Sony announces in Japan a new digital recorder NDR-XR1 equipped with the 80GB hard drive and a DVD recorder.
The unit features a broadband connection to retrieve a programming guide. The system can record up to 90 hours of programming on the 80GB Hard drive.
Recorded shows can be directly burned on DVDs with the built-in DVD writer.
This is the dream machine! Wonder if it will be available on the US market, This baby is poised to 'piss-off' Hollywood. This would be a nice alternative to the ReplayTV box.
Sony will offer two complete Dolby 5.1 DVD home theater system NAV-E900 and NAV-E600 with the NDR-XR1 on the market under the brand Sony Cocoon.
The Digital Recorder NDR-XR1 will go on sale April 12th in Japan.
