Sony Hard Disk Drive DVD recorder
With a large capacity Hard Disk Drive both RDR-HX925 250GB and RDR-HX725 160GB models are capable of long up to 428 Hours on the 250GB HDD (in SLP Mode) recording hours. Both models maintain the capability of recording with excellent picture quality thanks to the HQ+ recording mode and several noise reduction features. In addition to HDD and DVD+/-R/RW the two models can also record and playback DVD+R Double Layer discs with a maximum 8.5GB capacity allowing the viewer to store up to 14 hours (in SEP Mode) of recordings on DVD disc. In HDD mode, viewers can activate the Chasing Playback function to begin watching a programme currently being recorded before it has finished. In addition, the simultaneous record and playback function allows viewers to watch pre-recorded content on HDD whilst recording a live TV programme. Also through the Fast Playback with Sound function the viewer can watch pre-recorded content, at 1.3x normal speed, complete with clear and intelligible sound and is thus able to view pre-recorded content in much less time, as well as to catch up with the live TV broadcast.

The Pause-Live TV function works by means of simply pressing the ‘Pause’ button on the remote control to freeze the TV picture. The viewer can choose exactly when they would like to continue from where they left off by pressing the ‘Play’ button. Backwards and forwards browsing through the recorded part of the programme is also possible and in this way the viewer can even catch up with the live broadcast. The RDR-HX925 and RDR-HX725 are also equipped with IR-Bluster which controls external Set-Top-Box and allows the user to utilise GUIDE Plus+ programme data. Via this connection the user will be able to control the tuner in the STB receiver. Similarly, the signal received by an external Set-Top-Box can be recorded to HDD or DVD. In addition, the GUIDE Plus+ feature allows the viewer to browse easily and more efficiently through pre-recorded contents on either DVD or HDD, as each TV recording comes with a given title, saving valuable time and hassle.

Transferring camcorder recordings for either copy or edit to DVD or Hard Disk Drive is easy on the RDR-HX925 and RDR-HX725.

To ensure the experience of using the RDR-HX925 and HX725 is impressive from start to finish, Sony ensures high picture quality in recording by HQ+ recording mode for HDD recording, which uses approx. 15Mbps of data transfer speed.
