DViCO's TiVX 5010-P HDTV recorder!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Is this the holy grail we have been waiting for?



Korea's DViCO is prepping to launch their latest home media system with this, their new TiVX 5010-P HD TV recorder. If you think this all-singing, all-dancing personal video recorder looks like their M-5000U media streamer well, you'd be right. So as you'd expect, you get all that existing media goodness in addition to a new EPG, integrated ATSC hi-def television tuner, and the ability to record video at a 1920 x 1080 resolution in MPEG-2 TP transport stream files. In other words, it supports MPEG-1, MPEG-2, (VOB, ISO and IFO), AVI, TP, WMV9, tp, trp and ts (and the most common subtitle formats) video; JPEG images; and MP3, WMA, AAC, Ogg, PCM, AC3, M4A, FLAC and WAV audio. It also packs DVI, component, S-Video and composite video outs and 2x USB 2.0 ports for adding external disk drives (this PVR is diskless) or optical discs. A third USB 2.0 port can act as host to your digital camera or USB-equipped MP3 player without the need for a PC to transfer files. It connects back to the home net and Internet via your choice of fixed 10/100Mbps Ethernet or 802.11b/g WiFi -- sorry, no draft-802.11n here. Priced at 330,000KRW or just $352.

Be glad they didn't! HDMI compatibility is rare. Look at all the posts with people having problems with HDMI.

Details please. Oh and before you get all excited, Dvico seems to have a IP license problem on thier hand with Dolby Labs and will no longer be able to sell thier products in the USA until this is resolved methinks. When you see that out of stock/ETA 2/22/07 be wary and take it with a grain of salt.

I bet Divco is gonna have to cough up a royalty for each and every 5000 and 4000 they have sold since it hit these shores. You gotta love the web of IP/Licensing/patents and the complications they can cause.

Or they can simply not downconvert the digital audio to analog stereo.

??

Kei-Any word on the add-on tuner for the 5000?

It's looking less and less promising they will actually release the add-on and instead screw the existing 5000 owners by releasing the 50x0 model. Lets hope that is not the case, otherwise there may be a lot of pissed customers unless they offer an upgrade option.

This product sounds very promising!

"Or they can simply not downconvert the digital audio to analog stereo."
I think the problem is that they have thousands of devices out in cunsumers hands without the proper license agreement and maybe are in breach of IP laws and must resolve this issue (coughing up the $$). For them to tweak the firmware to disable features does not address the existing hardware base-just forward looking shipments.

My guess is that you (digitalconnections) as well as all other resellers have been contacted by dolby labs and told that you cannot legally sell these products??

Now, do I buy a 4000 or wait for the 5010 with the integrated tuner? Choices-choices.
The 4000 form factor works better for my last HDTV but I would like the built in tuner.

I'm afraid to like this...

Where is the h.264 spec we were promised in the 5100 (as opposed to this less-incremental 5010)?

Does this do h.264?

Does the software for these do sharing between multiple units? What I'm thinking of is something where all the recorded programs from your 50xx units are displayed in one master list and streamed over the network as needed.

If not that polished, can you mount the shared drive from each, and manually select programs?

This looks like a fantastic device (with all the normal caveats.. actual delivery/availability, stable firmware, good support). A few dream features for me:

- Integrate with existing devices/servers. Ideal would be MythTV support, but uPNP support could offer a workable solution for MythTV backend server integration.
- QAM support for clear cable channels.
- H.264 support. This is growing in popularity.. Although much of the H.264 material is / will be restricted with DRM.
- Consolidation/sharing as mentioned above.
- Support for Apple sharing protocols, for iTunes music, iPhoto pictures, and videos.

I come from Spain and normally there only we can by obsolete machines. This multimedia HHD recorderder can be the thing of my wishes. Please, if someone have more information about it ((caracteristiccs, firmwares, possibilities, where to buy, etc...) please shere it. Thanks every one.

- H.264 support. This is growing in popularity.. Although much of the H.264 material is / will be restricted with DRM.

I will second both these features, especially QAM support which is much more robust of a signal than OTA, even at 14 miles from the broadcasts.

No QAM is a deal breaker. For me it means no Fox, no football.
post #16 of 16
Yes, she is

Oh, wait, you meant that coffee grinder ...

(No Gigabit Ethernet? Does it do DivX HD or just regular DivX? HDMI 1.3 by now would've been good, too ... as well as Apple HFS+ filesystem support)
