Sharp has a new DVD/HDD recorder on the market – TU-R160H – featuring a 160GB drive and twin Freeview tuners, so you can simultaneous record one digital channel whilst viewing another.
It’s a slimline player with an 8-day EPG for planning and timing and a hard drive that should offer up to 80 hours’ recording capacity. It also features ‘Chasing Playback’ – where you can pause the live broadcast then continue watching where you left off, a ‘Picture In Picture’ function and the ability to record subtitles of shows. The company claims it’s also more environmentally friendly – with a low power consumption rate of 0.5W in Standby mode, compared to similar products on the market that can consume more than 15W.
The TU-R160H should be available sometime this mont from most high street retailers – price to be confirmed.
