Same as last years. JVC, Samsung, Toshiba (and others) have the same thing on some of their models.

Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way.

Ok. I learned more. Its not a plain vanilla hard drive. Its a special device that has something called HAVI and other copy protection features. Sourcery in post 2464 from below and other posts provides a bunch of information.
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=688802.

As far as I can tell there is only one DVR standalone device currently made in the less then $900 category that will work (by INdigita) and that will iterface with the TV and be controlled by the TV and its not unreasonbly priced. Others by Motorol (2600) and Toshiba came and went.

I sould take a look at the HD VCRs now too since I know now DVRs are not common.

If it sounds to good to be true.......

HAVI is the interface standard for these AV-HDD devices. Have you seen this thread;
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=602499

Try a search for the RCA DVR-2160. I doubt you will find one under $400 as the ones left seem to be horded. :mad:

Also there is this;

Ok.. Thanks. As far as my weak understanding goes the DVR-2160 is not made any longer. And I cannot find one either on ebay or other. The Toshiba device claims to only work with Toshiba sets and I have a Mitsubishi 65732.

It appears the only one that is currently available today is this OEM Indigita mfrl but it can be purchased by individuals if the credit card purchase link at the bottom is true.

Ah, so this is just about AVHDD devices? I think most TVs in the last 2-3 years have supported that. I've got 3 DVR-xxxx boxes collecting dust, I thought you meant it recorded to a standard removable 1394 HDD by using SBP2 protocol or something. AVHDD is old news.

I tried the Toshibal 160hd4 today. OEM from Indigita. It works fine with the Mitsbishi set. The problem is that once you record, you cannot change the channel. thats not a problem with the 160hd, but a problem with the single tuner 731 model TV I have.

That have 1394 ports. Many don't!

Those sets have TWO tuners; OTA & Cable. You should be able to use the other one when recording.

Nope. Once you record you cannot change channel or even change input to watch video in from another device. It even states so in the manual.

Guess the later generation TVs will have 2 HD tuners.
