The amazing DVR-57H is a videophile’s dream: TiVo service, an 120GB hard drive, next-generation viewing and recording features... and the list continues. This machine will forever change how you find, watch, and record video.
TiVo Service: The DVR-57H comes with the revolutionary TiVo BasicTM Service included, with no startup cost or monthly fees. Pioneer is the world’s first company to offer this powerful combination. Setup is very simple, and finding and scheduling your favorite shows is a breeze.
120GB Hard Drive: With the built-in 120GB hard drive you can record up to 120 hours of material—off the air, cable, or satellite, or your home movies—for short-term storage and viewing. You can actually control live TV: pause it, reverse it, play it in slow motion. You can even watch a recorded program from the beginning, while the recorder simultaneously finishes the recording. With the DVR-57H, there’s just no going back to the old way of watching TV.
DVD Recording: And those shows and other content you want to keep for a longer period of time? Burn them onto a DVD-R (permanent; can’t be erased) or DVD–RW (can be erased/written over many times). The DVR-57H features up to 18x record speed, so you’ll be able to dub a 1-hour program to DVD in basic EP quality mode in just over 3 minutes. (DVR Version 2.0 4X Media.) You can even record content to the hard drive while dubbing different content from the hard drive to a DVD. It’s fast and easy, and the content remains in a digital state throughout, so the quality level is very high.
Sophisticated Video Circuitry: The DVR-57H features PureCinema 2:3 Progressive Scan for a more film-like presentation when watching movies; a 9-bit/27MHz video DAC for a truly superior picture; Faroudja Directional Correlation De-interlacing, or DCDi™, for a smoother, more natural picture; and a sophisticated noise reduction circuit which can achieve an amazing 6-10dB of noise reduction.
Superior Elite Build: The DVR-57H sure is a beauty to look at. This high power machine comes with a impressive double layer chassis to make this powerhouse one strong piece of equipment. And did we forget to mention that this DVR powerhouse comes with the Elite 2 year warranty? Well it does, and that gives you the piece and mind that this beauty will be around for a long time. The DVR-57H is no joke. This is a home theater in the fast lane, passing all the other cars, leaving them green with envy, and there's no turning back!
Superior Audio Features: The DVR-57H also features Dolby Digital and DTS Digital surround sound outputs, plus CD and MP3 compatibility.
