Bang & Olufsen HDR 2 250GB hard disc recorder launched

Personal video players

Bang & Olufsen have launched their HDR 2 hard disc recorder with a huge 250GB hard drive for storing and watching analogue and digital TV shows. It can be set up to record programmes in a series and automatically delete the oldest watched episodes to conserve space.

It features much of what you’d expect from a PVR: pausing live TV and simultaneous recording and playback. It also lets you create TV libraries which lets you store content in up to 8 different groups, named as you like. Recordings can be split, trimmed and renamed to save space and group similar programmes together.

The 250GB drive will store up to 110 hours of standard quality or 60 hours of high quality (not high definition) content. It features 2 SCARTs, Y/C input, and aerial connections. Done out in aluminium/black, it has dimensions 47 x 10.1 x 26.4 cm and weighs 6 kg. Price to be confirmed.
