This is probably for the Japanese market only. Sony has been trying to launch Cocoon (TiVo like product) here in the US for what seems like years now, but nothing so far. Maybe its contract with TiVo prohibits Sony from importing Cocoon here?

Still, the recorder is impressive. Now if only DNNA (the parent company of ReplayTV) can come up with a dual tuner 500GB box like this.. ::droll::

Does anyone make a HiDef MPEG2 codec chip or chipset that's consumer-device oriented?

There must be at least one decompress for the HiDef set-top boxes, but who knows about compress side.

I'd bet that what's considered affordable at the consumer level can't support real-time Hidef compression or the bitrates associated with it.
