In the event that someone asks "what TV allows recording of an output signal?" it is the Sony KD-XS series as seen in the attached photos. The first photo is a front view of a Sony KD-30XS955 in one of the bedrooms. The second photo shows a portion of the rear panel. Notice the "Monitor Out" connections at the right side of the upper group. The "Monitor Out" feature is illustrated and described in the Operating Instructions as item 4 as seen in the third and fourth photos.
