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, anytime. When 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.
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.
HDMI digital output for easy connection with only one cable
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface. It is a direct digital connection that can carry digital HD video as well as digital multi-channel audio. By eliminating the conversion to analogue signals it delivers perfect picture and sound quality, completely free from noise. HDMI is fully backwards-compatible with DVI (Digital Video Interface).
FlexTime to watch the beginning while you record the end
With FlexTime you can watch a programme while it’s still being recorded, thanks to the extreme speed of a Hard Disk. You can also watch a different programme from the Hard Disk while it's recording something else.
EasyLink controls all EasyLink products with a single remote
EasyLink lets you control multiple devices with one remote. It uses HDMI CEC industry-standard protocol to share functionality between devices through the HDMI cable. With one touch of a button, you can operate all your connected HDMI CEC-enabled equipment simultaneously. Functions like standby and play can now be carried out with absolute ease.
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.
Dual Media conveniently records onto DVD+-R/RW and DVD+-R DL
Philips DVD Recorders support "dual media" recording - the ability to create recordings on DVD+R/RW, DVD+R DL, DVD-R/RW and DVD-R DL discs. Now you can buy any disc and your Philips recorder will always create fully compatible recordings, which can be played on any DVD player.
i.LINK digital input for perfect digital camcorder copies
