Toshiba RD-XS34 Multi-Drive DVD Recorder

3D Y/C Comb Filter: Eliminates most video noise normally seen in RF and composite video signals.

JPEG Viewer: Enables the display of digital photographs captured in the JPEG format. Simply load the CD with your favorite photos and create custom slide shows with a few simple clicks of the player's remote control.

160 GB Hard Disc Drive (HDD): This drive, similar to what is used in a personal computer, can store recorded broadcast programming and dubbed content. The RD-XS34 will allow high-speed dubbing from the HDD to a DVD-RAM, DVD-R or DVD-RW without any deterioration of the digital MPEG-2 signal and provides instant access to recorded programs. So forget about searching for blank videotape when you want to record, simply hit RECORD and let the HDD do all the work.

Multi-Drive Playback and Recording: Toshiba Multi-Drive DVD recorders are multi-format DVD recorders designed to provide the greatest flexibility in recording and playback by supporting DVD-RAM, DVD-R, and DVD-RW* recordable disc formats. The right format for every application:

Digital Cinema Progressive (3:2 Pulldown): Delivers the smoothest, most film-like images to any progressive scan television, such as an HD-compatible one, and ensures maximum resolution.

WMA & MP3 Playback: Play recordable Compact Discs (CD-R & CD-RW) with music stored in either the Windows Media™ Audio or MP3 file formats can be enjoyed.

3-D Virtual Surround Sound: Provides a simulated surround sound effect from sources that contain only a stereo soundtrack. Convenient when playing older DVD films or for use with home theaters not equipped with multi-channel playback compatibility. Also active via the headphone output jacks.

DVD-R Compatibility: DVD-R is a write-once format perfect for sharing treasured video moments with virtually anyone who has a DVD-Video player.

DVD-RAM Compatibility: DVD-RAM is the most flexible of the recordable DVD formats when it comes to recording, editing and playback. Even more, re-record content approximately 100,000 times!

DVD-RW Compatibility: Similar to the functionality of a CD-RW disc, this rewritable format is compatible with many of todays DVD-Video players and computer drives and can be rewritten up to 1,000 times.

EASY NAVI Menu: An entry menu portal that provides quick and easy access to key features of the DVD recorder, such as Timer Recording or DV Capture. Additionally the EASY navi displays a "live action window", providing feedback to the user on the current status of the recorder, whether it is recording a program, in the Time Slip mode, or playing back content with DVD-RAM.

TV Guide On Screen™ Interactive Program Guide: This Interactive Program Guide provides an easy to read listing of the television programs available to view or record. TV Guide On Screen™ Interactive Program Guide provides: an 8-day program listing, flexibility of recording directly to DVD or the HDD, the ability to perform keyword searches for locating favorite programs and includes the G-Link IR Blaster for controlling cable boxes. When recording television programs, the name of the show, along with the channel and date, are automatically captured.

Time Slip, Chase Play and Live Chase Play "Pause Live TV": Chase Play allows the user to begin watching a recording that is already in progress. The Live Chase Play feature lets you 'pause' a live recording and then return to it later. During playback of both modes, a bar graph can be displayed on-screen depicting the 'progress' or location of the playback signal with regards to the real time recorded signal.

ColorStream Pro® Progressive Scan Component Video Output: These outputs allow the highest quality video signal to be sent from the DVD player to a component video equipped progressive scan TV. When this connection is utilized with today's HD-compatible sets, typical NTSC artifacts-like video noise, dot crawl, and flicker-are virtually eliminated, resulting in a lownoise, highly detailed picture with unequaled color purity.

Front Panel A/V & IEEE1394DV Inputs: There are composite audio & video inputs, as well as RCA L/R inputs on the front panel of the unit for easy camcorder dubbing. Additionally, an IEEE1394 'Firewire' jack is also available on the front panel for interfacing compatible digital video camcorders. Provides automatic recognition of the device and on-screen menu controls to easily direct the "downloading" process with the recorder’s remote control.

Optical TosLink® Digital Audio Outputs: Connects easily to a wide variety of receivers and signal decoders. It is not affected by RF interference.
