Toshiba preps telly-friendly content store

Networkable media hard drive en route

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Toshiba is to take on LaCie, Western Digital, Seagate and all the other HDD sellers offering drives designed to be hooked up to an HD TV.

The Story TV+ is set to ship in Q3 and will contain 1-2TB of 3.5in HDD storage. Content can be copied onto the drive through its USB 2.0 port - or from cards slipped into its SDHC slot.

It will, however, pump out pictures at up to 1080p resolution, through its HDMI port. It also has component-video output for folk with old tellies. It has co-ax digital audio out too.

The TV+ has a display of its own: a small, 2in-or-so LCD panel that replicates the UI presented on the main screen.
