RoverTV Portable DVR

Archos' new line of media players may have an accessory to turn them into video recorders, but this second step could prove to be a hassle for users who record live media on a regular basis. Bypassing the need for outside hardware is Doghouse Electronics' new RoverTV. It can not only record and play live video but do so on a schedule courtesy of a timer, much like a set-top DVR box. The RoverTV can similarly capture live FM radio and plays back a multitude of media formats, including digital audio and photos. Content is stored on SD cards such as the 2GB card included in the package. There are two distinct models depending on the aspect ratio you want to use: a $299 model has a 3.5-inch standard ratio screen for regular footage, while a $349 model expands to a 4-inch widescreen for users recording from those sources. Both versions work with Macs or Windows PCs and should be available now.
