This advanced Blu-Ray Disc / DVD recorder and player features a Twin HD Tuner, plus five times more HD recordings with a 500GB HDD and 341 hours (HM Mode) HD Recording. It also offers a 'Series Recording' function and super-fast processing speeds to give you almost instantaneous access to the disc tray and electronic program guide.
Record Five Times As Much HD Content
Twin HD Tuner with Large Capacity HDDYou won't believe how much content you can record and store! A Twin HD Tuner lets you record two different programs broadcasting at the same time, and the built-in, large capacity 500GB Hard Disc Drive (HDD) records five times more content than the ordinary DR (Direct Record) mode. There's enough space here to cover even the longest vacation or binge-watching marathon.
Easy Settings Record Every Episode in a Series
TV Series Recording
When you register your favourite TV programs using the 'Series Recording' function, every episode in the series will automatically be recorded and store each time they are broadcast. This great feature makes sure you'll never miss your favourite shows and lets you watch your programs at your own leisure.
