Xfinity Spectrum quad-tuner HD DVR

Comcast subscribers soon will have access to a new quad-tuner DVR, the Xfinity Spectrum, which may represent the 'Xcalibur' codename from a recent report. The HD-capable device will reportedly allow users to watch video on one channel, while simultaneously recording content from three other channels. A graphical interface is also said to integrate a "Freinds Trends" feature for ranking movies or TV shows and comparing the listings with others.

Aside from the ranking feature, the box also supports a variety of Internet-connected content such as YouTube video and Pandora streams. Users can also access popular social networks including Facebook and Twitter.

The set-top box integrates HDMI, component, composite, S-Video and optical audio outputs, while a CableCard is believed to be a necessary addition.

Pricing and launch information for the Xfinity Spectrum remain unclear. [via Wireless Goodness]
