I was lucky enough to talk to a VERY knowledgeable rep at the JVC booth today at NAB about both the SR-W7U WVHS deck and the HM-DH30000.
The SR-W7U has quite a few ins and outs on the back... at least 4 and maybe 5, and at least two were component. There were no ilink/firewire/1394 connectors.
The rep referred to it as a 2nd gen deck. The specs on the plasma display above it were very scarce, but it will record 1080i. This is an ANALOG deck! The HM-DH30000 is the digital deck with a FW/ilink connector (this is a Japan only deck marketed under their Victor line, very cool; but who knows when we will see it- it has several record modes from LS to HS with bitrates from 2Mbps to 28.2 Mbps).
According to the rep the SR-W7U is available now, the really bad news... it goes for $6069.00. I will definitly verify this tomorrow.
