Here's some info on the new Toshiba DR1 DVD Recorder.


I read in only one place, that it also will have DVI output- but I ma not certain tha's true.



Toshiba D-R1 DVD-RAM/DVD-R Recorder


Toshiba has announced a second generation DVD recorder, the D-R1. This new model will feature:

• Super MultiDrive

• DVD-RAM format and DVD-R

• Time Slip function to simultaneously record, and playback; enabling consumers to pause live television as well as begin viewing a program recording that is already in progress

• ColorStream Pro Progressive Scan playback

• options for personalizing the DVD recording

• IEEE 1394 Digital interface to transfer their home video to DVD

• thumbnail features

• chapter creation function to designate the point at which they wish to have a chapter break

• playlists creation

• front A/V inputs including A/V Composite and S-Video

• top operational buttons for versatility in home theater set-up and user-friendly operability


The D-R1 will be available in September 2003 at a suggested retail price of $599.99.

The hard drive is required for (1) Tivo type use to record TV; and (2) editing?


Is that your point?

Anyone know when this is coming out? Onecall website says "coming soon". I have a five year old Toshiba 3107 that is awesome - still today one of the best PQ machines I've seen. BUT, no progressive scan or recording capability. Time to upgrade.
