Why Are Multiple Tuners Important?
With a Personal Video Recorder, you can record your favourite sport, while your family watches another channel, all in digital. You can also record two different channels, simultaneously. That means your family will never have to fight over the set top box remote again.
What Is Timeshifting?
There's nothing more frustrating than being interrupted during the dying moments of the grand final. A PVR allows you to 'pause and rewind' (Timeshift) live broadcasts. Timeshifting means you can put the game on hold and continue watching at a later time, from exactly where you left off.
What Is Chase Play?
Chase Play is perfect for when you can't make it home for the start of the game. Using the Electronic Program Guide, the PVR will automatically start recording when at the start of the broadcast. You can start watching as soon as you get home, even if the PVR is still recording the live action.
Is Hard Drive Size Important?
The size of the hard drive you choose dictates how much action you will be able to record and store on your PVR. For this reason, the bigger the hard drive, the better. Hard drive sizes range up to 500GB. Typically, a 250GB model will hold approximately 100 hours of SD (standard definition) recordings and half of that for HD (high definition) recordings. That's enough to record your team's entire season.
