Pioner 1080p DVD Player

Pioneer today released a range-topping DVD and DVR hybrid recorder dubbed the DVR-940HX. As it uses a newer core chipset than previous models, it has enough performance to upscale DVDs even to the full 1080p resolution of newer HDTV sets, according to Pioneer. A second but equally central feature is its recording ability: the 500GB internal hard drive can capture up to 1422 hours of standard-definition video and is used to provide disc-to-disc DVD recording. External SATA and USB ports give the 940HX additional storage as well as the ability to load music or photos.

Also built into the design for the European market is a DVB-T tuner to receive the continent's Freeview digital broadcasts. While input is limited primarily to analog sources such as RCA, S-video, and SCART, the device includes HDMI output to display the full 1080p image and has DV input for viewing home movies directly from attached cameras. Pioneer offers its player for 1,999 ($2,629) in Europe; a North American equivalent is likely but has not been revealed.
