how I hate watching HDTV in real time. I don't mean watching HD itself;
I love that! I just don't have a way to time-shift my HD programming
until I get my new Dish 921. That's why I'm thrilled to
see that Sharp
is adding four new HDTV recorders
. These are slated for the Japanese
market, so I won't cancel my 921 order just yet, however.
models have a single tuner, while two models have dual digital tuners.
The two-tuner models, the DV-ARW12 and DV-ARW15
feature a high speed
recording and processing procedure that allow recording of two HD shows
simultaneously on the single hard drive
. Drive sizes range from 160 GB
to 500 GB, so these should get anywhere from 14 to 40 hours of high-def
content. No word on pricing just yet; how do we get these over here?
