Record, watch and keep your top 100 movies* with the Sony HDD DVD Recorder. With 249 hours of storage and on-screen recording information, the HDD DVD Recorder lets you take control of your viewing, so the only thing you have to keep up to date with is what you'd like to watch next.
What Hi-Fi recognised the quality and capability of the Sony HDD DVD Recorder in their Sound and Vision awards, handing the product of the year in the DVD recorder category to the Sony RDR-HXD860.
"a sophisticated, understated appearance alongside a great spec, build and performance… for the price of an ordinary machine. Impressive in every respect, the Sony sets a daunting new benchmark… there wasn't much debate about this Award."
The RDR-HXD860 removes the hassle of recording through touch-button selection on the Electronic Programming Guide (EPG). It lists TV and radio shows eight days in advance, allowing you to record, even if you're away from home.
Programmes with regular broadcast times, such as the Ten o'Clock News or Eastenders, can be recorded daily or weekly, without having to programme each individual show. This is particularly useful if the demands on your day mean you're never sure when you're going to be in front of the TV.
All TV shows are transmitted with series ID numbers. The RDR-HXD860 uses this information to record an entire TV series from one episode selection. Series Recording is set-up to record and store every subsequent show in the series, without repeats.
If your show is interrupted, Split Recording links the two parts to make sure you don't miss the second half. This feature comes into its own when a news bulletin splits a film in two.
Start watching a programme before recording has finished and catch up to Live TV through Chasing Playback. With the ability to skip scenes (and ad breaks), using fast playback with sound, you can return to real-time TV and watch when you're ready.
Whether you're watching a fast-paced, non-stop action movie; a serene documentary or the match of the season, Noise Reduction Technology cuts out the blocks, flickering and buzzing of digital interference, enhancing the broadcast picture to superior quality.
