BulletDVR racing Camcorder/Lap Timer

BulletDVR racing Camcorder/Lap Timer

Ever wanted a good, easy solution to recording your races from a first person point of view? Well the BulletDVR has your back with its little black box and camera combo.

The little black box stores the video, does all the encoding and such, and can even offer up lap times, jetting, gearing, suspension, and fuel consumption info. The camera is fairly small but the most important thing is it is unaffected by vibration, a major problem with putting cameras in racing vehicles.

Pacific Defense Bluetooth DVR pen

Pacific Defense Bluetooth DVR pen

You guessed it; this pen is a DVR that has Bluetooth. It also has a microSD card slot. It has an audio detection mode too, so it knows when to start recording, and it’s designed to work in low-light situations. It can even send an alarm signal if motion is detected.

No, it’s not a DVR in the sense that your new Media Center PC is a DVR, this one actually has a camera and microphone built in. of course there is also a motion sensor, so its clearly not made for use by the standard person, and judging by the company’s name, its probably for spy operations.

Rumor: Xbox 360 might get HD-DVD drive, somehow

Rumor: Xbox 360 might get HD-DVD drive, somehow

Alright, so not too long ago I reported on a potential new SKU, the Xbox 360 Ultimate which was supposedly going to be the Elite, but with an integrated HD-DVD drive. That, so far hasn’t happened, but this new announcement could give way to just that.

Or, they could just bundle the current separate HD-DVD drive with an Xbox 360 Elite since they probably have a ton of HD-DVD drives just sitting around. Although the drives have been selling like crazy thanks to all the rebates, price cuts, and other deals.

Horizon Semiconductors Hz4120 and Hz3120

They company name, as well as the product names probably don’t mean much to you, however what they do is quite important to your impending HD lifestyle. They are both SoC or system-on-a-chip systems that can do real-time HD encoding, transcoding, and decoding.

They have MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 decoders, audio processors, and graphics acceleration built into them. they are being made for set top boxes for both satellite and cable boxes, the 4120 is aimed at cable, with the 3120 being aimed at satellite.

Magnetox v120 is Mac Mini Look-A-Like with DVR Functionality

Magnetox v120 is Mac Mini Look-A-Like with DVR Functionality

The Magnetox v120 has an uncanny likeness to the Mac Mini, but I assure you the Magnetox doesn’t even compare in functionality. In fact I am going to go so far as to say that the v120 would be a complete waste of money as it doesn’t really do any of its intended functions completely or all that well on its own.

First, let’s start with the fact that it’s a DVR with no integrated storage or even a program guide. Then lets move on to the fact that its probably analog only. After that head straight to the fact that its limited number of formats supported doesn’t even make it all that good of a media player.

DirecTV HR21 Pro DVR Is Rack-Mountable HD Recording Dream

DirecTV HR21 Pro DVR Is Rack-Mountable HD Recording Dream

So, being the shallow person I am, I am going to go ahead and judge this book by its rack-mountable cover, its not gonna be cheap. It can record up to 100 hours of HD content, and since it is for the DirecTV network you can bet users will have plenty of HD content to record.

It will support 1080p output, through its pretty Optical HDMI port. There is a whole slew of ports pictured on the back, but none of them are OTA antenna connectors for recording HD over the air.

Bang & Olufsen DVD 2

Bang & Olufsen are at it again with a new version of their DVD player. Once again, this isn’t the most attractive DVD player, but its feature set makes it well worth it.

This DVD player provides near-MCE level functionality. It has a DVD player and recorder, a TV tuner/recorder, and an integrated HDD for storage of media.
