Capable of recording to disk or DL-DVDR, the new DVR-DT100 delivers on all the important areas

For those who are tired about the ongoing bickering between Blu-ray and HD-DVD, Pioneer has announced a new home theater device it calls the DVR-DT100 -- an 800GB equipped DVR capable of tuning both analog and digital signals and recording them during playback.

The unit comes with dual tuners and is able to record not only to its internal storage array but also to dual-layer DVD-R discs without interrupting a customer's enjoyment of a program. The unit is fully HDMI-HDCP ready and comes with all the necessary outputs to connect to the latest digital home theater equipment.

Pioneer says that the new DVR-DT100 will be available in the early weeks of April of this year.

See the original press release here (in Japanese).

Why does it need HDMI/HDCP

Is not HDMI and HDCP for HD content protection? What's the point of having it on this thing if it doesn't record HDTV?

Who said it doesn't record HDTV? It says both analog and digital signals.
