is prepping to launch their latest home media system with this, their new TiVX
5010-P HD TV recorder. If you think this all-singing, all-dancing personal video recorder looks like their M-5000U media streamer
well, you'd be right. So as you'd expect, you get all that existing media goodness in addition to a new EPG, integrated ATSC hi-def television tuner, and the ability to record video at a 1920 x 1080 resolution in MPEG-2 TP transport stream files. In other words, it supports MPEG-1, MPEG-2, (VOB, ISO and IFO), AVI, TP, WMV9, tp, trp and ts (and the most common subtitle formats) video; JPEG images; and MP3, WMA, AAC, Ogg, PCM, AC3, M4A, FLAC and WAV audio. It also packs DVI, component, S-Video and composite video outs and 2x USB 2.0 ports for adding external disk drives (this PVR is diskless) or optical discs. A third USB 2.0 port can act as host to your digital camera or USB-equipped MP3 player without the need for a PC to transfer files. It connects back to the home net and Internet via your choice of fixed 10/100Mbps Ethernet or 802.11b/g WiFi -- sorry, no draft-802.11n here. Priced at 330,000KRW or just $352.
