It's basically a clone of this(or ours is a clone of theirs), oh and about the same price but it's for our TV system.
I've also not heard of Teac for years but they do still sell things like CD players(yes I said CD not CD/DVD) in other markets. I agree, N. America is just the tip of the iceberg for this DVR product line, didn't a link that was posted a week or so back say the factory that made them was capable of something crazy like 20,000 units/week
Yes overseas their TV system has such a program guide that is pretty standard, unfortunately not in N. America where we are stuck with PSIP that is lucky to go out 12hrs, lots of times less and sometimes more. IMO this is a major reason why BD recorders(and other HD DVRs in general) are readily available in Europe(using Freeview with it's nice 7 day guide) but not in N. America We had TVGOS for a while that went out a week but it basically died with the analog shutdown. Apparently the new CM DVR is going to use a variation of TVGOS for it's guide but time will tell.
