Samsung unwraps first DVR
Ready to record Freesat HD
Samsung has introduced its first DVR, a set-top box capable of grabbing and recording Freesat HD programmes.
The SMT-S7800 contains a 500GB hard drive - good to hold 120 hours of HD content, or 250 hours of standard-definition material, Samsung said - and two tuners for watching one show while recording another.
The DVR has a USB port to playback material held on external storage, plus both Ethernet and Wi-Fi linkage for internet connectivity. It'll tap into YouTube and BBC iPlayer out of the box, Samsung said, and will gain ITV Player soon.
The box costs around £300 and is available now. ®
