LG's HR400: can pause, play and review Freeview telly

The sleek HR400 unit is able to receive over 40 Freeview channels, LG said, each of which you’ll be able to pause, play and rewind at will.

The gadget’s 160GB hard drive also means you can record up to 477 hours of telly, LG added.

LG’s HR400 can only play – rather than record and play – Blu-ray discs. But it will upscale content to full 1080p HD through its HDMI port and connect to the web for BD-Live content. DivX movie playback is also supported.

Other features include a USB port for hooking in a camera, camcorder or MP3 player, and an eight-day TV guide.

LG’s HR400 will be available in the UK later this month, but a price hasn’t been released. ®
