MBCO In-Car TV Recorder
Having chosen conventional satellite TV in favor of the more recent terrestrial digital broadcasts, MBCO today launched its Moba Ho! MBR0201 receiver. The small tuner is built for both in-car mounts and home use and is rare for its ability to record as well as play satellite TV: a miniSD card slot is built in to capture as much as 2GB of video for later viewing on an attached display. The reliance on a larger screen for the main picture leaves room for channel information and navigation on the unit's own LCD, MBCO says. A bundled wireless remote can manage playback from the back seat. Ths new receiver is due to launch in mid-January with open pricing on the Japanese market.
