5.1 channel audio recording of TV programs from set-top box
Digital 5.1 channel audio recording lets you capture – along with the video – the original sound from digital multi-channel sources such as satellite receivers to store it on DVD. These recordings can then be played back in multi-channel only on your Philips Recorder or in Stereo on any DVD player.
One Touch Pause Live TV freezes the action instantly
Pause Live TV puts you in absolute control. Once the recorder is turned on, a large built-in memory automatically starts recording the program you are watching -- allowing you to pause, replay or save the program, anytime. If you need to take a break, you can pause your 'live' TV program with just one touch of a button, and resume watching when it suits you.
Twin Tuner to watch one program while you record another
Two integrated DVB-T tuners let you receive Digital Terrestrial TV and record two programs in HD simultaneously, or watch one while you record the other. The HD tuners are able to decode three high definition picture formats (576p, 720p and 1080i). The video signal is kept digital without any analog steps in between, to preserve high picture and sound quality, multiple views of some sporting events and other services such as program guides.
