Wouldn't it be great if every DVD drive used an HDMI cable so we wouldn't have to announce when someone else produces one? Panasonic just added a new HDD DVD/VHS recorder to its line of Digi recorders.
Sure, while it may lack the Hitachi's 1 terabyte of hard drive space, it still maintains the ATSC digital tuner. The unit also allows you to record any source (DVD, VHS, or digital tuner) onto the 250 gig hard drive, but when you combine that with space taken up by episodes of Letterman and Lost, there can't be that much room left. But hey, anything is better then nothing.
