As well as having 160 gigabytes of storage capacity, the LG Digital Media Recorder has two USB ports, so the user can plug in an external hard drive if needs be, so long as it’s compatible. Storage to DVD is compatible with DVD+R Dual Layer recordable discs, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD+RW.

Connected to the home wired or WiFi network, the LG Digital Media Recorder means TV shows can be sent to the home PC. Further, JPEG photo files, MP3 and WMA music files stored on the PC can now be accessed through the LRM-519 for slideshow playback.

"LG strives to bring to market groundbreaking, innovative products and services that address evolving consumers' needs and improve their daily lives. With the launch of the digital media recorder category, we believe we have done just that, and in turn, we are changing the landscape of the consumer electronics industry," said Robert A. Perry, vice president, consumer electronics sales and channel marketing, LG Electronics USA, speaking for the benefit of high-end retailers at the CEDIA trade show in Indianapolis.

The Microsoft Program Guide service can search up to 14 days of programs by title, keyword, actor, director or category. Any scheduled recording can be configured to record only once or for an entire season of shows. There’s also up to 90 minutes of "live" TV pause, and even the ability to jump forward 30 seconds.

Available in USA in October, the LG LRM-519 Digital Media Recorder has a RRP of $599. The Microsoft Program Guide service subscription is available for a $249 one-time fee, $99.99 for a one-year subscription, or for $9.99 for a one-month subscription.
