Thanks, but really old news. They've had that PDF up since the end of the summer, I think. It just recently started shipping, though, and I've seen it at The Good Guys and Tweeter.

Note that it can only record and display HD video through its FireWire connections. It has no embedded HD tuner and is designed to record from the ATSC tuner in Mitsubishi's TVs (or from some cable or DBS tuning STB with FireWire). It has no embedded MPEG decoder or encoder, so it can't play a D-VHS tape through its analog outputs, or make one from its analog inputs. JVC's unit has all those capabilities except built-in-HD tuning, and include HD analog outputs (though it will reduce the resolution of video displayed through these if the recording had copy-protection set) but it lists for twice as much.

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.

Sure hoping that maybe the Mits can be made to work with 169time dtc100.

The Mits D-VHS VCR will work with any Mitsubishi HD set that has received the PROMISE MODULE upgrade. This upgrade will be available in the spring of 2002.
