Easy file transfer between HDD, DVD and high-speed USB 2.0
Thanks to the complete file transferability, you can transfer or copy your multimedia files from one source to another regardless of whether the files are stored in the recorder HDD, on a DVD disc or on your USB flash drive.
DivX Ultra Certified for enhanced playback of DivX videos
With DivX support, you can enjoy DivX encoded videos in the comfort of your living room. The DivX media format is an MPEG4-based video compression technology that enables you to save large files such as movies, trailers and music videos on media, e.g. CD-R/RW and DVD recordable discs. DivX Ultra merges DivX playback with great features including integrated subtitles, multiple audio languages, multiple tracks and menus into one convenient file format.
Instant Replay for reliving a live TV moment with one touch
With Instant Replay, you can relive magic movie moments and super sports scenes - any time you want. At the touch of a button, the hard disk will replay the last 30 seconds. Skipping further backwards requires nothing more than pressing the button again.
Integrated Freeview tuner and analogue TV reception
With the Hybrid TV Tuner, you can watch any programme - whether it is a digital or analogue broadcast. While the broadcast industry makes its transition to digital, the Hybrid TV Tuner lets you watch analogue transmissions now, and any up and coming digital ones. You receive seamless entertainment - now and into the future.
Plays DivX, MP3, WMA and JPEG digital camera photos
Play virtually any media format you want - whether it is DivX, MP3, WMA or JPEG. Experience the unbeatable convenience of great playability and the luxury of sharing media files on your TV or home theatre system - in the comfort of your living room.
Progressive Scan component video for optimised image quality
Progressive Scan doubles the vertical resolution of the image resulting in a noticeably sharper picture. Instead of sending a field comprising the odd lines to the screen first, followed by the field with the even lines, it writes both fields at the same time. A full image is created instantaneously, using the maximum resolution. At such a speed, your eye perceives a sharper picture with no line structure.
HDMI 1080p upscales to high definition for sharper pictures
HDMI 1080p upscaling delivers images that are crystal clear. Movies in standard definition can now be enjoyed in true high definition resolution - ensuring more details and more true-to-life pictures. Progressive Scan (represented by "p" in "1080p") eliminates the line structure prevalent on TV screens, again ensuring relentlessly sharp images. To top it off, HDMI makes a direct digital connection that can carry uncompressed digital HD video as well as digital multi-channel audio, without conversions to analogue - delivering perfect picture and sound quality, completely free from noise.
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 programme you are watching -- allowing you to pause, replay or save the programme, any time. If you need to take a break, you can pause your 'live' TV programme with just one touch of a button, and resume watching when it suits you.
Dual Media conveniently records on DVD+-R/RW, DVD+R DL
Philips DVD Recorders support 'dual media' recording - the ability to create recordings on DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW and DVD+R DL discs. Now you can buy any disc and the Philips recorder will always create fully compatible recordings that can be played by any DVD player.
Guide Plus+ electronic on-screen TV guide
GUIDE Plus+ is an Electronic Programme Guide – a free on-screen TV Guide that shows what's on TV for the next couple of days and lets you programme the timer of the DVD Recorder with the push of a button.
HDD Media Jukebox lets you store movies, music and photos
