The Saturday 12/1/01 LA Times had a full page Good Guys ad for the Mits HD VCR and the Mits Netcomand HDTVs. 65" HDTV $4999 and VCR $999. This HD VCR will only work with the Mits Netcommand HDTVs (or presumably other HDTVs/STB with 1394/5C interface).
Given that, the VCR will record and play back thru the HDTV. The Netcomand HDTVs have built in HD receivers so the VCR can record anything received. There is no mention of satellite receiver so presumably it is a OTA only system. You probably can hook up a satellite STB to other component inpouts but unless the STB has a 1394/5C interface you cannot record satellite.
However recording OTA HD is still great. If I hadn't already purchased a HDTV I would probably go for this unit. However I haven't gotten to the store yet to check it out.
